The presence of Sampanthan and Sumanthiran at thje Muliwaikkal Commemorations was just like Hitler barging into Holocaust Commemoration, said Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam, the Leader of TNPF. He was speaking in a press conference at the party’s office yesterday .
The Tamil people had taught a good lesson in the Muliwaikkal commemoration, to people who came to power by ‘ig’nis fat’uus’. Unfortunately when the organizers of the event were giving prominence to ‘errand- boys’ without realizing the reality, common people had identified and exposed the errand-boys. A journalist threw a most suitable question at Sampanthan at that time.
When Sampanthan spoke just after the end of the war in the parliament, he said that he is congratulating Mahindha for eradicating Terrorism.
Also during an media conference just after the PC elections, answering a question regarding Liberation Tigers, he said that, ” LTTE is a merciless terrorist organization. Before targeting Mahindha Rajapakse, they targeted me. This shows how merciless trhe LTTE is.”
Unemployed graduates are struggling for their livelihood. People are struggling for their land, for their missing relatives. In this context, without taking the Prime Minister to meet them, Sumanthiran had taken him to his house, served him “Nungu”(Young Palmyrah fruit). I strongly condemn this, he said.
