Govt. introduced new amendments to coerce public into accepting 20A: Manusha

Manusha Nanayakkara of the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) accused the government of introducing new amendments to coerce the public and clergy into accepting the 20th Amendment to the Constitution.

This was stated at a press conference held at the Opposition Leader’s office today (20).

“When the government introduced 20A, it created a lot of unpopularity within the leading party, society and clergy. I believe that these new amendments are brought to coerce the public into accepting 20A, while they continue to use the new amendment to destruct the democracy of the country,” he stated.

He further urged the public not to step back in their resistance of the20th Amendment.
