Everyone should approve the Constitutional change targeted to improve the living standards of the people and uplift the country. This is the opinion of the Asgiriya Mahanayake, the Most Ven. Udugama Sri Buddharakkitha thera.
The Mahanayake underlined that all groups should support the desire of the President to take the country to the place he expects. The President’s term of office is not extended through the constitutional change. An opportunity is afforded to elect a person of the people’s choice. As such, the Prelate noted that he does not approve those who oppose it. The President was bringing in a constitutional amendment with an honest desire and for the benefit of the people. Therefore, the Opposition should give its support. There are signs of a clear change in the country within the next five years. Mega development projects are operative in every part of the country.
The Asgiriya Mahanayake emphatically stated that such programmes cannot be halted in between. He added that their blessings are with the proposed Constitutional amendment. The Prelate gave these details when Minister Prof. G.L. Peiris called on him recently.
