Highlighting the changes taking place in Sri Lanka between the majority and Tamils Field Marshal turned politician Sarath Fonseka on Tuesday said there was no grouses between the Sinhalese and Tamils over the 13th Amendment.
“We have given that message to the majority community in the south also. There are no grouses with the majority community with the people in the north now. We didn’t want to make the same mistakes,” Fonseka told ANI in an interview.
“The present government is considering all aspects to go ahead with the 13th amendment taking care of the legal and political issues,” he reportedly added.
“There are few legal and political issues to a certain extent. Of course we are determined that everybody in the country is given due place, equal place.”
“We have mentally conditioned the country to live together. They understand that there must be reconciliation as one nation. But political devolution and so things are being discussed. Legal issues are there changing Constitution, referendums and various things are being considered. Hopefully things will fall in line.” (ANI)
