Provincial Councils is an internal matter which should be decided by the President of Sri Lanka and not by the leaders of other countries, Provincial Councils and Local Government State Minister Sarath Weerasekera today said.

Speaking at an event in Padukka, State Minister Weerasekera said, “India cannot interfere or intimidate that we should continue with the Provincial Councils,” he said.

He said ours is an Independent Sovereign country and therefore India cannot interfere in our internal affairs.

“The 13th Amendment was introduced into our Constitution under the Indo-Lanka pact and according to which India had to fulfil several conditions and one of which was the disarming of the LTTE, which never took place. India could not accomplish it. Therefore, it is questionable as to what extent this Indo-Lanka agreement is effective,” he said. (K. Buddhika Kumarasiri and Nihal Wettasinghe)

    Well said! The Indo-Lanka pact is now null and void. Let's move on; onwards and upwards!

    International community has to mind it's own business but fact remains that their say on PCs is spot on. It is absolute waste of public funds

    If one of the two signatories could not fullfill obligations other party is not bound to honour it's commitment ! It's obvious and common natural justice.
