The 57th Annual General Meeting of the Sarvodaya Shramadana Association was held in Colombo on Saturday. At the meeting that was held under the auspices of Chief Minster of the Northern Province C. V. Wigneswaran, the Sarvodaya Assessment Committee presented commemorative tokens to the Chief Minister of the Northern Province and Dr. Piyasoma Mendis.

In this event, Chairman of Sarvodaya Movement, Dr. A. T. Ariyaratne commented on the Northern Province Chief Minister.

“Recently in papers it was said that he refused to hoist the national flag. That is a lie. Didn’t you see him hoisting the national flag now? These are all lies. It is true that he raised the provincial flag when the district secretary or the governor hoisted the national flag on behalf of the government, at an occasion where there were two flags to be hoisted,” said Chairman of Sarvodaya Movement, Dr. A. T. Ariyaratne.

He added; “There was no talk that he refused to hoist the flag. Ethnic, religious or colour differences are deseases. If someone steps forward to cure this desease then all of us must help in this endeavour.”
