The NFF says that it objects if a decision has been taken to allow reciting the National Anthem in Tamil.

Addressing a media conference held in Colombo this morning, NFF politburo member MP Weerakumara Dissanayake said a proposal to this effect has been submitted to the National Executive Council when it met last Tuesday.

When our news team contacted Democratic People’s Front Leader Mano Ganeshan said that he submitted such a proposal to the National Executive Council which has already received approval from the President.

However NFF MP Dissanayake said that the decision to permit reciting the National Anthem is not an urgent matter.
