Samagi Jana Balawegaya parliamentary group yesterday unanimously decided to defeat the proposed 20th Amendment in Parliament, once it is presented.   


The decision was made when the Parliamentary group met with Leader of Opposition Sajith Premadasa in the chair yesterday.   

 The resolution was proposed by SJB Matara District MP Buddhika Pathirana and was seconded by Kurunegala District MP Ashok Abeysinghe. 

 
It was also decided to hold a protest near the statue of the late Maduluwawe Sobitha Thera along the Japanese Friendship Bridge.   


Meanwhile SJB MP Eran Wickramaratne said his party will start a campaign against the 20th Amendment near the statue of the late Maduluwawe Sobitha Thera today by making a pledge that they will fight for the constitutional reforms which the late monk stood for. “The 20th Amendment will pave the way for corruption. 
The abolition of National Audit Commission and the National Procurement Commission will pave the way for corruption,” he said. 


 SJB is to carry out protests in and outside Parliament against the 20th Amendment shortly, according to the MP.
