Oct 26, Colombo: Ally of Sri Lanka's governing party, the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) has questioned the government's motive to change its stance on the devolution of power.
SLMC Leader, Minister Rauf Hakeem speaking at an event in the Eastern Province has said the government was engaged in making revolutionary changes.
He has noted that some prominent figures in the government have changed their stance on power devolution and questioned the reason for this change of stance.
According to Hakeem, it is unclear whether the change has come about due to the clash with the judiciary or due to pressures from issues within the government.
Meanwhile, SLMC Chairman Basheer Segudawood has also said at the same event that given the current situation, it is unclear whether the next election in the area would be held under a district system.
