Ruwan Wijewardene,  Deputy Leader of Sri Lanka's opposition United National Party says that the modern Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa is preparing to cut off the head of the country’s democracy and give it to Gotabhaya Malli (President Gotabaya Rajapaksa) as King Siri Sangabo gave his head to Gotabhaya Malli during the Anuradhapura era.

Pointing out that there is no democracy is active in the current Sri Lankan parliament, the former state minister said the UNP with the people is ready to take the fight to the street against the 20th Amendment, which gives parliamentary power to an individual.

Mr. Wijewardene stressed that government MPs should act in accordance with their conscience, not in defense of their parliamentary or ministerial posts, but in the interest of democracy in the country and added that a constitutional amendment should not have been rushed at a time when the corona epidemic has spread across the country.
