Sri Lanka will split into 10 parts if the 13th Amendment to the Constitution is fully implemented as promised to Jaffna residents by Samagi Jana Balawegaya Leader, Sajith Premadasa, to garner their votes, claimed Pivithuru Hela Urumaya Leader, Udaya Gammanpila.  

Speaking to the Media today (7), at Party Headquarters, Gammanpila stated that Premadasa promised to dedicate himself to defending the 13th Amendment, which is a mockery.

“According to the 13th Amendment, the President can set up a single Provincial Council (PC) at any time by combining the Northern and Eastern Provinces. The Police powers are with the PC. Even 33 years after the 13th Amendment was introduced, no Government gave Police powers to PCs,” he added.

Gammanpila stated that according to the 13th Amendment, land powers are vested with the PC and if the 13th Amendment is implemented, even archaeological sites will come under PCs.
