Opposition leader Sajith Premadasa, who attended the 116th Annual Feast of the National Shrine of Our Lady of Matara, on Saturday, told journalists that if the hands of those in power are clean they should be able to hold an impartial and transparent inquiry on the Easter Sunday bombings and clear the doubts in the minds of the people by revealing the findings.

The Opposition leader said that those who objected to holding an independent and transparent investigation into the Easter Sunday bombings may be afraid that their dealings with terrorist groups might come to light.

He said the vote on the no-confidence motion against Minister of Health Keheliya Rambukwella had proved that the majority of the lawmakers were not concerned about the wellbeing and health of the public.

The Opposition leader and the Minister of Buddhasasana, Religious and Cultural Affairs Vidura Wickremanayake had a discussion with the Chief celebrant of the evening Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Colombo the  Most Rev. J.G. Anthony and Bishop of Galle the Most Rev. Dr. Raymond Wickremasinghe.
