Rosy Calls For Fresh Constitution, Not ‘Patches’

The Opposition United National Party’s Rosy Senanayake today expressed the country’s need for a fresh constitution and not for ‘patches and plasters’ to be put on it.

”I totally disagree with the 18th amendment, taking all the powers into hand is detrimental. We need to look into the real issues and find a solution that is acceptable”, she said whilst at the party headquarters at Sirikotha this evening.

Senanayake added that the UNP would continue its protest by taking its fight to the streets.

“Enough is enough. We will continue to have this protest. Eventually you cannot play with feelings, thoughts and rights of the people. Eventually people are going to rise. The President is not looking at urgent needs. This amendment is about one person. People didn’t vote them in to rob public money. What you reap is what you sow and this I have told the president,” she said.
