Speaking at the Diamond Jubilee celebration and publication of a commemorative magazine of Bishop Dr. Supramanium Jebanesan at the Petro Hall of St.John’s College Jaffna the Bishop of Mannar Rev Rayappu Joseph said:
We expect that the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is coming to Sri Lanka should think with truth as the basis, act on Justice as the basis and will take a definite decision to bring about Re-conciliation, real peace and quietness. It is causing pain of mind to be without rights, although we have a high level culture said Mannar Bishop, Rayappu Joseph.
The life, problems and politics are knitted closely in numerous ways with the politics of India. In a context where the International community is thinking that all the problems of the people be solved with the decisions of India as the base, we hope that the visit of the Indian prime Minister will pave the way to build up a mother land, with devolved powers, and internal Autonomy and happiness.
Indian Prime Minister’s visit should lead to create peace and reconciliation in Sri Lanka, the Bishop said.
