Monks launch campaign against 13th Amendment

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 15 July 2009, 10:34 GMT]
The National Front of Buddhist Monks (NFBM) Tuesday launched a leaflet campaign to mobilize the masses against implementing the 13th Amendment at the Matara main bus stand in the south of Sri Lanka. The NFBM has planned to distribute one million leaflets in towns and villages across Sri Lanka. More than 30 Buddhist monks participated in the launching event.

“India and several western countries are attempting to thrust upon us a proposed political solution against the wishes of all communities in Sri Lanka. A mass protest against the proposed political solution is the need of the hour,” President of the National Front of the Buddhist Monks (NFBM) Ven. Attanayale Samitha Thera said at the event.

“The government is planning to provide a political solution to the national problem through the 13th Amendment.

"We defeated separatism and strengthened the political mainstream in the country.

"The proposed political solution through the 13th Amendment would foil the military victory and create a division in the country,” he added.
