MR Accuses NGOs Of Creating Religious Disharmony - Still No Meeting For CBK

Alluding to the meeting between former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga and Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe, President Mahinda Rajapaksa said yesterday that some non-governmental organizations with foreign help were trying to create religious disharmony in the country. 

President Mahinda Rajapaksa made this remark yesterday while addressing a political meeting in the South. 

Former President Kumaratunga presently heads South Asia Policy and Research Institute,  non-governmental organization promoting religious harmony in the country. She recently held a discussion with the opposition leader about ways to promote religious harmony in Sri Lanka. 

Former President Kumaratunga, in her capacity as the head of the South Asia Policy and Research Institute, has also sought a meeting with President Mahinda Rajapaksa to discuss matters pertaining to religious harmony. Sources said she is also planning to conduct a series of discussions with the ministers of the present government after the meeting with the President.

Presidential Spokesman Mohan Samaranayake told 'Asian Mirror' that President Rajapaksa has still not responded to CBK's call.
