'Ready to bring in new constitutional amendment'

A new amendment to the Official Language Clause of the Constitution to ensure parity between Sinhala and Tamil as national languages will be proposed by National Co-existence, Dialogue and Official Languages Minister Mano Ganesan as the 21st Amendment to the Constitution.

He said this at an opening ceremony of a language centre to entertain violations of state language policies and language issues.

The minister further stated that with regard to the upcoming Cabinet reshuffle, the President and Prime Minister would take the appropriate decisions.
