".. They are attempting to take this impeachment motion into various directions. What I cannot believe is that the learned community in the country have become involved in this. Whether it is being done knowingly or unknowingly, it is a great conspiracy.''
''We need to see if they are attempting to create a legal trap through which no government will be able to act. I believe that this absurd constitution should be torn apart and a new one should be formed. I believe steps should be taken to form a new constitution which focusses on national unity and will ensure the development of the country in 2013 .." stated Minister Mahinda Yapa Abeywardene
''As a country with a proud history, we have been blessed with many natural resources. As a government we need to develop these resources. What we hope to do is to create a situation where one in every seven individuals relies on the tourism industry, by the year 2016 .." added Deputy Minister Lakshman Yapa Abeywardene.
