Call for black flag hoisting reflects JO’s political bankruptcy: Mangala


Foreign Affairs Minister Mangala Samaraweera has stated that the political bankruptcy of those Joint Opposition members is reflected by their intention of hoisting black flags on the sacred and historic day that commences the United Nations International Vesak Day Celebration in Sri Lanka on May 12.

He was addressing the House, while he moved the order under the Diplomatic Privileges Act when Parliamentarian Sydney Jayaratne questioned of the Joint Oppositions attempt to hoist black flags.

He further stated that the government would not allow anybody to hoist black flags on Vesak Day, Christmas Day nor on the birthday of Prophet Muhammad.
