The British Parliament has not passed any resolution against Sri Lanka as mentioned by some Opposition MPs, Government MP Premanath Dolawatte said in Parliament on Thursday.
“A resolution calling to take action against Sri Lanka has been approved only by a local body in the UK. What the Opposition MPs said in the House earlier was false. I have checked it out from the British High Commission in Sri Lanka,” the MP said.
“We agree with what MP M. A. Sumanthiran said on safeguarding the sovereignty of all people. Our government has not prevented any one from practicing their own faith. One cannot approve the action of some people who had taken LTTE flags to Kovils to commentate the dead cadres. We will be compelled to take legal action against such persons,” he added.
“There is no such word called minorities in my dictionary. There are only brothers and sisters who belong to other ethnic groups,” he also said.
