TNA wants land and police powers for provinces

The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) today called for land and police powers to be devolved to the provinces.

TNA Parliamentarian and Tamil Eelam Liberation Organisation (TELO) leader Selvam Adaikalanathan told Parliament today that the 13th Amendment must be fully implemented.

He said that as part of the 13th Amendment to the constitution, powers should be fully devolved to the provinces.

TNA Parliamentarian Sivashakthi Anand said that past Government’s failed to fully implement the 13th Amendment.

He told Parliament today that the former Government even removed some of the clauses in the 13th Amendment through the 18th Amendment to the constitution. (Colombo Gazette)
