Rajitha on NPC Resolution

Cabinet Spokesperson Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaartne has expressed concern over the recent resolution by the Northern Provincial Council.

He has stated that the Northern Provincial Council has taken an extremist position.

He was speaking to The Hindu. He said:

“This is a period of reconciliation, and both sides should engage constructively, rejecting extremism. While the NPC may be justified in raising concern over alleged war crimes, they cannot call it genocide. Choosing confrontational ways will hamper forward movement on the issue.
