No amendments will be made to SLFP proposals - Rajapaksa

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 15 May 2007, 10:33 GMT]
Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapaksa, speaking at the meeting of the working committee of Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) held Monday 11:00 a.m. at his official residence Temple Trees, has said that no changes will be made to the proposals put forward by the party for resolving the ethnic conflict to "please other political parties," in Sri Lanka, SLFP sources in Colombo said. Rajapaksa's comments come 4 days after a top US envoy, Richard A. Boucher, urged the southern political parties to come up with a consensus.

Rajapakse also added, "It is our aim to eliminate the shortcomings of the present administration and develop a valuable political and administrative structure for the people.

"Our proposals include village level administration, followed by regional administration and the creation of National administration. This proposal was put forward to the public, only after receiving approval by the Central Committee and Executive committee of our party," he said.

The proposal put forward by SLFP will be submitted before the All Party Representative Committee (APRC), Rajapaksa said.

Senior cabinet ministers Maithiripala Srisena, Minister of Agricultural Development and Agrarian services, D.M.Dayaratne Minister of Plantation Industries and a number of senior members of parliament were present at the conference.
