State religion as Buddhism and declaring Sri Lanka a Sinhala State.

mahinda-and-gotha-278x300Constitutional reform within the framework of a unitary form of government and Buddhism as State religion would not help Tamils to get a reasonable political solution, according to Kavindran Kodeeswaran, Ampara District Tamil National Alliance Parliamentarian.

He further stated that Sinhala politicians in the southern part of the country have been submitting their recommendations based on unitary of government, State religion as Buddhism and declaring Sri Lanka a Sinhala State.

This is not a healthy trend. Tamil people have not been agitating for a separate State. Tamils want a place where they are able to rule themselves in their own land within a united Sri Lanka.

He stated that Tamil National Alliance would certainly obtain a better political solution to the Tamil question and the Leader of Tamil National Alliance R. Sampanthan is very firm in his stand.
