Mangala should be worried over extremists Vijayakala
While stating that pro-LTTE Finance and Mass Media Minister Mangala Samaraweera should not be panicked over the law suits which would be filed against the media which are misinterpreting the facts, the Joint Opposition yesterday said instead Minister Samaraweera, who brought the resolution against Sri Lanka in the UNHRC should be worried over the statements made by the UNP minister calling for the resurgence of the LTTE Tamil Terrorists again.
While referring to the controversial NY Times report, which alleged that a Chinese company had funded the campaign of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa in January 2015, JO group member MP Namal Rajapaksa said standing for the accuracy and filing a lawsuit would not be amounted to suppression of media.
“We vehemently condemn the statement made by State Minister Vijayakala Maheswaran calling for the resurgence of the LTTE. There is no use of conducting disciplinary investigations. We are waiting for President Maithripala Sirisena to take legal actions against the State Minister,” he added.
Since the so called Yahapalana government came to power Tamil extremists and racism increased over the period with the support of Tamil politicians, and Yahapalana government policies.
