ITAK Secretary raises opposition to Masthan's appointment

K-Thurairajasingam-700-02

Illankai Tamil Arasu Katchi General Secretary former Provincial Minister Krishnapillai Thurairajasingam has strongly condemned President Maithripala Sirisena for appointing a Muslim as Deputy Minister of Hindu Affairs which is apparently a move unacceptable to any right thinking person.

He was responding to Parliamentarian Masthan taking oaths as Deputy Minister of Hindu Religious Affairs. In his criticism, Thurairajasingam stated that obviously, President will not dare to appoint a non-Buddhist as Minister in charge of Buddhasasana Affairs. There is no rhyme or reason behind this appointment by the President.

He pointed out that this move by President in a context when the Tamil National Alliance is extending support for the government to resolve the national issue through the enactment of a new constitution is regrettable. It creates an embarrassing situation which is unhealthy for a consensual approach.
