According to Minister Lakshman Kiriella, the proposed constitutional amendment envisages a strengthening of the provincial councils. He rejects claims by some that the amendment will result in a merging of the Northern and the Eastern provinces and giving police powers to those two provinces.

Speaking at a religious event in Kandy, he assured the people that the place of prominence given to Buddhism would remain unchanged. Minister Kiriella added the government wanted to pave the way for all communities to live together in unity.
