‘Singing national anthem in Tamil, a ridiculous idea’ – Gota

Singing the national anthem in the Tamil language, which is a recommendations of the LLRC, is a ridiculous and unpractical idea, said defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa.

He stressed that the political proposals contained in the commission report too, cannot be implemented.

The implementation of the rest of the recommendations is underway, said the defence secretary.

He went onto say that provincial councils cannot be given land and police powers as requested by certain politicians.

The devolution of powers to the provinces is already taking place under the 13th amendment to the constitution, said Mr. Rajapaksa.

Also, the disarming of the armed groups in the north and the east and the release of detainees are also two LLRC proposals which are being followed, he added
