Constitutional amendments won’t resolve country’s political crisis – Sarath Fonseka
Constitutional amendments will not resolve the country’s political crisis, a Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MP Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka told Parliament yesterday (April 21).
“You have to take action against a school principal whenever he abuses a child in the school rather than abolishing the principal’s post,” he said.
“I don’t see how a constitutional amendment would help Sri Lanka. What we need is a change in the political culture. Neither a constitutional amendment nor the appointment of an interim government is going to help Sri Lanka at that moment. Also, we don’t want to take up a position in a government which is formed by groups that are thinking of their survival at this moment,” he added.
He said even bringing no-confidence motions will not help. Those who are protesting in the streets want a change in the political culture. Those youths who stage protests have our blessings and the backing. I therefore would like to tell these youths in the street not to give up their struggle. Their victory is at hand. I would also like to appeal to the public to support them and provide them with what they need,” he said.
Referring to the Rambukkana attack, he said the OIC of the area had got two persons to shoot at the protesters. “This OIC had come to the scene after consuming liquor. Chaminda Lakshan who was killed during the protest was never involved in any form of violence,” he alleged.

Dear Field Marshall Fonseka,
You are the REAL WAR HERO.
You won the war war for us.
Politically, you are a ZERO.
Resign from the Moda-Dasa’a Balvegaya and join us in GotaGoGama!
… and sh–t with us on the Gall Face Green! One and the only objective and the cause unite us is R’s. Once they are gone, it will be like the last time we got together to depose R’s with the help of Sira. Like it happened last time, who cares what follow next? We still can blame all our failures on R’s. We are experienced in the game now.
You belong to Batch64 and you live in Pervy Boris’ backyard.
Maybe you discharge faeces in public places in that land where cowards and traitors from SL have fled.
But GotaGoGama is pure soil, it is nature, it is motherland where we intend to secure justice and peace for the Nation, we belong to.
Pervy Boris appears to be tired of the 28 year old blonde slave in Downing St; maybe he is looking for some curry for a change; Indra Akke, you are a definite candidate.
PuKa_Ku, Is that the best you can manage in relation to this articles this discussion? How pathetic? I am so scared now of trolling!
MR et al wanna remain in power facilitating any amendment and/or agreeing to any deal and that is the bottom line.
