If attempts to create a separate state in Sri Lanka stopped, he would consider removing the Executive Presidential system, President Mahinda Rajapaksa addressing a public gathering in Kilinochchi said today.
"Some people are asking a separate state and divide the country. Even the Tamil National Alliance is supporting that concept. Some sections of the Tamil Diaspora are also trying to divide the country. If those parties stop demanding Eealm in Sri Lanka I will consider removing the Executive Presidency," he told a large number of people in Kilinochchi.
He said that there were reports recently that some members of the Diaspora in the UK, US and in the Europe had planned to create a separate state within Sri Lanka and even opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe had met them.
