The Chief Prelates of the three Chapters in a letter states that if action is not taken to resolve the prevalent economic crisis, a Sangha Convention will be declared against the present governance.
The letter states the Maha Nayaka Thera together will declare a Sangha Convention, if the proposals put forth by the Chief Prelates on the 4th of April are disregarded, continuing to remain insensitive to the issues of the people.
The letter said all Members of Parliament, including the Head of State, are responsible for the crisis the citizens are facing and claimed them to be irresponsible as the public remains in queues day and night to meet their needs.
The letter has been directed to the President, the Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition and all leaders of political parties representing Parliament.
The letter states that the Chief Prelate is a firm believer that the crisis cannot be resolved by appointing a new Cabinet.
The Chief Prelates also requested authorities to pay attention to the demands of the people who are engaging in peaceful protests and to provide them prompt solutions and urged authorities to refrain from engaging in any activities against the people.
The Chief Prelates urged all public representatives to expedite the abolition of the 20th Amendment to the Constitution that led to an imbalance between the Executive and the Legislature and to introduce a new Constitution that contains acceptable provisions of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution.
