President agreed to not implement ‘One Country One Law’ report – Bathiudeen


All Ceylon Makkal Congress (ACMC) Leader and Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MP Rishad Bathiudeen said that President Ranil Wickremesinghe agreed with his plea made to not to implement the recommendations of “One Country One Law” Task Force.

The working committee members of ACMC including Bathiudeen and former State Minister M. S. S. Ameer Ali met President Wickremesinghe at Presidential Secretariat to discuss current political and economic crisis in the country and the forming of an All Party Government.

Bathiudeen added that President Wickremesinghe positively reacted to their requests and promised them he would take every possible action to resolve their requests within his capacity as the President of this country.

Bathiudeen said that the aforesaid task force was formed by former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and entrusted the responsibility of it to one who was not qualified in any way. He prepared a report as he wanted and presented it to President Rajapaksa, Bathiudeen added.

ACMC Leader MP Bathiudeen alleged that the involvement of racial and communal forces was the causes for the devastation of economy of this country. The government led by President Rajapaksa promoted racism and communalism in the country.

Bathiudeen claimed that if the country ought to be developed the involvement of communal forces in the State administration must be prevented. President Wickremesinghe must take necessary action with regard to this matter.

“Taking the prosperous future of this country to consideration, we are ready to extend our fullest support to the future plans and programme of the government to be implemented by the all party government in future,” Bathiudeen added.
