The JHU yesterday condemned business tycoon Lalith Kotelawala`s statement which referred to the LTTE as freedom fighters.
Speaking during the committee stage debate on the votes on 21 institutions, JHU MP Ven. Omalpe Sobhita Thera said this statement had been made in violation of the Constitution.
The Thera referred to Mr. Kotelawala as an unpatriotic person. He called on Speaker W.J.M. Lokubandara to take action against Mr. Kotelawala for making this statement.
The monk said the statement made by TNA MP M.K. Eelaventhan saying they would attend the next budget in Eelam, was also a violation of the Constitution.
?Action should be taken against both these persons. They have violated the provision 157 of the Constitution,? Ven. Thera said.
