“What is wrong in Wijeyakala speaking about Tigers? It is not fair in you getting angry with her. You should get angry with the people who made her to speak like that.”, said TNA MP, M.A.Sumanthiran amidst Sinhala speaking audience. A deadly silence prevailed among the audience.
A meeting organized by Lanka Sama Samaja Party was held yesterday at Ruwanwelle in the Ediyanthotta Electorate to explain the activities undertaken regarding the New Constitution to people, yesterday. Sumanthiran said as above when question were asked by the media during the course of his speech.
The tasks for the new Constitution are in progress. Some of you are frightening people saying that Tamil Eelam is going to be granted through that. That is not true. The new Constitution will be placed before you. You – your leaders refusing to give what was agreed on earlier. If you will give our just rights only if Tigers are present, have Wijekala and the other Tamil Leaders, any other option but to call for the return of the Tigers to get the just rights to their people.
If you and your leaders will come forward to grant the rights agreed during the period of the Tigers, now, while Tigers are not present, people like Wijekala will not have any need to talk like that.”, said he.
