Former Army Commander MP Sarath Fonseka has warned that the government was opening the door for a military coup in the country by introducing the 18th Amendment to the constitution.

Speaking at a press briefing in Parliament a short while ago Fonseka also expressed disappointment over the UNP boycotting the debate on the 18th Amendment to the constitution.

    The Coup has already been achieved with the 18th Amendment! A Constitutional Coup!

    Don't worry. The Commander of the Army is not strong enough to stage a coup.

    If Govt. got strong development plan that is convincing,they won't rush through with 18th.
