If the Sinhalese Leaders like J.R. Jeyawardena had been following the Buddhist religion which propagate love and if they are real Buddhist, the necessity for bearing arms would not have been forced on us, ‘Thamby’ Prabaharan had said once. Similarly, the Tamil Leaders have been running a compromising politics for long is the reason behind the current sorry state of the Tamil people, said the former CM, Justice C. V. Wigneswaran.
He said this in a discussion with former Poralis held in Kilinochchi.
Elaborating further he said that the armed struggle undertaken to win the aspirations of the Tamil people was silenced on May 2009. Hence, the Tamil people have been forced to depend fully on and trek the path of democratic politics.
As a consequence of our Tamil Leaders who were believed at a high level, acting without understanding their responsibilities, we are undergoing the current pathetic distresses even after 10 years from the conclusion of the war, he said.
