Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had asked the Kilinochchi District Secretariat to stop work on the restoration of LTTE cemetery in Kilinochchi, sources close to the PM said today.

They said that the Ministry of Development Policies and Economic Affairs had instructed the Kilinochchi Pradeshiya Sabha to stop work.

According to sources, Premier Wickremesinghe had informed Deputy Minister of Development Policies and Economic Affairs Niroshan Perera to get the Kilinochchi Pradeshiya Sabha.

Kilinochchi MP S. Sritharan had earlier allocated funds to renovate LTTE cemeteries in the north in commemoration of the LTTE Heroes Day which falls today (November 27). (Yohan Perera)

    Why worry about the dead. Just let them do anything to their heroes. One man's food is another's poison. We should try to be a civilized society.

    This talk is all about playing politics.

    If they want to remember their killer brethren why not build a housing scheme over the rubble, that way they will be able to sleep with them forever!!!

    It is alright to remember the dead people in cemetery. What's wrong with it?

    Sandy Monday, 27 November 2017 10:02 AM

    What's wrong is using public funds allocated for people's welfare not building whatever

    It's common in SL. Whatever allocated not implemented as the way it should be. No wonder..

    Even the graves of fallen German SS men are maintained in all European countries although the SS has been declared a criminal organization after WW 2.

    Gaysn Monday, 27 November 2017 07:23 PM

    Half truth. No cemetry for SS. Its for German army as a whole. Further no activity allowed for Nazis.

    One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. It is a worldwide phenomenon from George Washington to Prabaharan.

    Those dead youth may have rightly or wrongly joined a resistance organization to fight against an injustice created by society and their leaders. Injustice happens due to incorrect policies of leaders and the society they represent. Therefore do not wound a wound that is not healing but create an environment for its proper healing.

    From Nazi party to ISIS originated under same reasons. World dont celebrate them.
