Mon, Jul 14, 2014, 09:57 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

July 14, Colombo: The National Freedom Front (NFF), a coalition party of the Sri Lankan government has decided to take a stern action since the government hierarchy has not responded to its 12 count proposals.

NFF sources said the party has informed the main constituent of the coalition, Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) hierarchy about the situation.

The party also said that the leader of the party Wimal Weerawansa will discuss the issue with President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The NFF adopted the 12 proposals at the party's second National Convention held in May this year.

The NFF proposed the government to place a new draft constitution before the people ensuring the territorial integrity of Sri Lanka, national reconciliation, good governance, and widening of the democratic rights of the people.

The President and the ruling SLFP discussed the proposals with the NFF and appointed a committee to prepare an action plan to discuss the NFF proposals.
