Speaking in Jaffna Ranil assures political solution

r-01Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, speaking in Jaffna today, assured that his Government will work towards a political solution to resolve the National issue.

The Prime Minister said that following the end of the war there was an expectation that the National issue will be resolved with the full implementation of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.

Wickremesinghe noted that former President Mahinda Rajapaksa had also promised to go beyond the 13th Amendment with “13 plus” but that was not to be.

He said that the Tamils, Sinhalese and Muslims faced several hardships since the National issue was not resolved.

However he said the current cohabitation Government is determined to address the National issue.

He also said that the concerns of the Tamils will also be addressed in order to heal their wounds and give them peace of mind.

The Prime Minister insisted that the reconciliation and accountability process is not to take revenge on anyone but to find the truth over some incidents related to the war.

He said the ultimate goal of Sri Lanka must be to ensure all communities work together in a united Sri Lanka and not a divided country.

He said that extremism should not be given room in the country and all religions must be protected like in the past.

The Prime Minister urged all political parties, including former President Mahinda Rajapaksa to support the reconciliation process.

He said that Sri Lanka must take advantage of its location in the Indian ocean and join the economic race.  (Colombo Gazette)


  1. He is echoing Chandrika’s blueprint, that woman, why did you ever come back to politics here, back off and go back, don’t ever come back.

    Ranil thinks reconciliation is like his cease-fire agreement with VP

  2. Political solution.
    To please Wiggie or TNA ?
    To please Diaspora & Biswal
    People of North?

    Nothing to please the Tamil people. They are happy & do not need any solution other than Seperate State.

  3. “”””Reconciliation””””””” is now federalism. Divide and Conquer with Identity Politics mixed in. With Governors (Kings&Queen) controlling provinces in a falsified democratic island. this is the oldest trick in the book, history always repeats itself. Were going to end up just like india, a shithole. I hope the sri lankan people wake up to this. They are being tricked right in front of them, hook, line and sinker. Were an island, we dont need federalism. It will create more problems. Another war is imminent
