President Maithripala Sirisena last evening approved an extraordinary gazette making garbage disposal services by all local government bodies an ‘essential service’ with effect from midnight yesterday. 

The Propaganda Secretary of the JVP Gampaha District Parliamentarian Vijitha Herath said that this discussion would cover the subjects of the new constitution and several issues currently facing the country. Several leaders of the JVP are slated to participate in this discussion. 

MP Herath stated that similar discussions had been held during the recent past with the TNA, SLMC, Sri Lanka Communist Party and the Muslim Congress. He said a need had arisen for a discussion on several issues that had developed especially with conflicting views being expressed by the ruling party on the proposed new constitution.
