Coming Monday likely to be a historic day

Prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is due to testify before the bond commission on Monday (20). He has volunteered, not being ordered, to give evidence before the commission, which is a very democratic sign. Had he wanted, the PM would have put off the appointment until he finished a tour of India. But, he will do so before going to India.

 

Previously, UNP strongmen Malik Samarawickrama and Kabir Hashim gave evidence before the commission without any hesitation. Even earlier, Ravi Karunanayake stepped down as a minister following a controversy. That shows the extent the UNP values democracy.

People who value democracy will highly appreciate the PM’s appearance before the commission. Political analysts describe it as a good omen that Sri Lanka moves away from tribal dictatorship on a path for a better future.
