Feb 04, Colombo: Opposition Leader of Sri Lanka Ranil Wickremasinghe says the government should implement the proposals submitted by it to the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva in 2009.

Addressing the C.W.W. Kannangara commemoration ceremony held in Mahamodara-Galle today, Wickremasinghe has said that the best solution for the government to overcome issues on allegations of human rights violations was to implement the proposals given in 2009.

He has explained that implementing the proposals would be sufficient for the time being.

He has noted that the country's independence has been threatened by organizations like the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

According to Wickremasinghe, institutions like the IMF had earlier helped the government to consolidate the financial system, but have now taken a different path.

He also called on the people to topple the current regime by 2014 to rebuild the country.
