Lawyers for Democracy says the lack of a Constitution that is acceptable to all communities in the country is a major concern.
Convenor of the movement Attorney Lal Wijenayake speaking at a media briefing in Kandy said despite 73 years since independence was gained, an acceptable Constitution is yet to presented.
Wijenayake said India, a more complex country than Sri Lanka with multiple religions, languages, and races, gained independence in 1947 and in 1950 put forth a Constitution that was accepted by all.
He added India’s leaders at the time worked meticulously and with a vision for the future.
However, Wijenayake condemned Sri Lanka’s inability to table a suitable Constitution.
