Opposition says singing anthem in Tamil will not help reconciliation

UdayaThe joint opposition says singing the National anthem in Tamil will not help the reconciliation process.

Joint opposition Parliamentarian Udaya Gammanpila said that the opposition is being accused of being communal minded for opposing the singing of the National anthem in Tamil.

However he says singing the National anthem in one language will help unity as opposed to two languages which will promote division.

“National unity will take place only if the entire country sings in one voice,” he said.

He said that there will not be National unity if Sri Lankans sing the National anthem in different languages and even the Vedda community sing in their own language. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. I disagree with the joint opposition. SriLanka went through a brutal war for three decades. Therefore, it has to do some drastic measures to unite the country.
