TNA to meet with Buddhist clergy

The Tamil National Alliance is to meet with Sri Lank's senior Buddhist clergy, the Maha Sangha in order to talk about the need to change the country's constitution, Adaderana and the Sunday Times reported. 

After a meeting between three Buddhist divisions on Tuesday in Kandy, the senior leaders unanimously rejected the need for any constitutional change and expressed concern over the 'threats' faced by Buddhism in the country. 

The monks' statement subsequently prompted the government to make public statements reassuring the Buddhist clergy of Buddhism's first and foremost place in the country.
