The government will present a draft for the new Constitution to Parliament soon, Leader of the House Lakshman Kiriella told Parliament today.

Mr. Kiriella came out with this information when Joint Opposition MP Udaya Gammanpila raised a question about the status given to Buddhism from the new Constitution.

“We will present a draft for the new Constitution soon and everyone will see the status which will be given to Buddhism,” Mr. Kiriella said. (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)

    Because of the inexperience of the planners, only about 5 lakhs of people would have come to Colombo to protest against the government. But if a new constitution is to be introduced, we will bring 500 lakhs of people to stop it. This is a warning to the government

    I can only expect this level of stupidity from a "Sri Lankan patriot". Where are you going to find 50 million people in this country dear patriot?

    What is the point in giving one religion upper most importance in a community that does not practice that religion. It sounds stupid to give Buddism upper most position in north or east where Hindus and Muslims are majority.
