No development through accusations – PM
Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe says a country cannot be developed by levelling allegations at one another.
Speaking at a gathering at Ruwanwella the Premier said instead all individuals should contribute to thinking anew, like other countries in the South Asian region.
The Premier stressed Sri Lanka must solve its own problems, as no other country will do so adding the country has the strength to come together and focus on the future.
However the PM said if people remain in the same place every day, talking only about the past, citizens will lose their identity as Sri Lankans and only serve to create religious and racial conflicts, which will be detrimental to the nation.
Premier Wickremesinghe said every citizen must unite together and think anew, adding even politicians must follow through as accusations alone are fruitless.

quite true but why not with the large majority you now enjoy abolish the Presidential rule in Sri Lanka by 30th October and bring all powers of the President to Parliament
The UNP does not have 2/3rd majority support even with TNA and JVP.
Leaving aside the aimless and idiotic SLFP, JO’s support is essential to rid the Executive Presidency.
The 19A makes the Executive President largely ceremonial; the next President under 19A will be toothless with only the Defence Ministry.
The issue now is why the population should directly elect at enormous cost, a toothless President? Why not transfer the power to elect a President to Parliament?
The JO is likely to agree to this and if the SC overrules a referendum, we, as a Nation, would be able to deliver the Late Ven Maduluwewa’s dream.
