The Constitution will be changed according to the needs of the people and not Non Governmental Organisations. This has been stressed by President Rajapaksa.
The President opined that the best place he likes is Parliament. That was why they were changing the Constitution. It was not done to meet the aspirations of anyone. It should be kept in mind that the Constitution will be changed according to the needs of the people. He emphasized that it was not done to the whims and fancies of those who lay conditions but for those who closely associate with the people. The Constitution cannot be changed as and when required by individuals.
