Statement made by Minister of Finance and Mass Media Mangala Samaraweera on the proposed new Constitution at the Parliament on 31st October 2017
• All of us here in this House are representatives elected by the people of this great country – people from different communities, speaking different languages, holding different religious beliefs, and living in different parts of this great country. People, irrespective of their backgrounds and which part of the country they live in, who have all unfortunately suffered the horrors of violence for long years. People, all of whom, irrespective of whether they have suffered violence or not, have all been sadly deprived, and sadly cheated, of the heights of economic prosperity that this nation could have achieved during the last 70 years.
