Opposition to secret operation:

These monks have pointed out that if there are unacceptable sections of the new Constitution these can be revised through discussions, but have said they are not in favour of having these secret operations against the government, according to reliable sources.
These sources further added that the initial steps for this movement is being carried out by Milinda Moragoda and Gevindu Kumaratunge and they are planning a massive media campaign in the near future.
