A series of public meetings are scheduled to be held to express support to the Government’s proposed Constitutional Amendments.
The first rally is being held at Gampola. It is being presided by Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne. The Government has also taken the initiative of appraising the Mahanayake theras about the 18th Constitutional Amendment. Accordingly Minister Prof. G.L. Peiris is scheduled to pay courtesy calls on the Mahanayke theras today and brief them on this process. The public rallies are planned in parallel to this effort.
