The Government has no problem with the implementation of the 13th Amendment to Constitution and if any allied parties are against it they could break away from cohabitation and continue to oppose it after leaving the government, Puttalam District UPFA MP Arundika Fernando told Parliament yesterday.
Participating in the debate on new regulations on the Insurance Industry, the MP said that there were some within the government ranks providing anti-government slogans to the Opposition and thereby strengthening the hands of Opposition.

He said that the 13th Amendment had become a contentious issue for both Indian and Sri Lankan politics. “We should not forget the fact that India had helped us immensely during the war. We won the war with the support of India. If this has become an issue we must discuss it with them too. The officials could express their opinion but it is not the position of the government. Those are their personal opinions. The government politicians should not make statements against government policies,” the young MP said. (SI)
