The Presidential Task Force on One Country, One Law held its Trincomalee District Consultative Discussion on Friday (3) at the District Secretariat under the Chairmanship of Ven. Galagoda Atte Gnanasara Thera.

The first session of the One Country, One Law discussions was held in Jaffna in the Northern Province. The first session in the Eastern Province was held in Trincomalee. Discussions will be held in the Batticaloa and Ampara districts.

Ven. Gnanasara Thera spoke on the issues facing the people living in the area, including in education and land matters.

Foreign rule caused division among the people of this country. Its scars are still found among the people today. So this process was created to bring all people together on the basis of one country, one law, Ven. Gnanasara Thera said.

He added that the existence of many laws in the country today is an obstacle to the unity of the people. The event was attended by members of the Task Force and citizens of the Trincomalee District.
