The Government had already decided on the action that was to be taken against State Minister Vijeyakala Maheswaran, who had called for the resurgence of LTTE, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe told Parliament yesterday.

“The belief of the Government is that LTTE, which is an organization that is banned internationally, should not re-emerge and that the national issue should be resolved with the consent of all ethnic groups.

“If someone in the Government had spoken contrary to this, action should be taken. We have therefore decided on the action that has to be taken against Mrs Maheswaran,” the Prime Minister said.

“I have contracted Mrs Maheswaran and had told her to meet me while Speaker Karu Jayasuriya had asked the Attorney General to take action against her,” he added.

The Prime Minister also said the Speaker should take action against those MPs who disrupted Parliament sessions unnecessarily on Tuesday.

He said himself and the Speaker had already decided to take action against Mrs Maheswaran by the time the Opposition MPs staged the protest in the House.

“Those who created a commotion on Tuesday are the very persons who gave Ministerial posts to LTTE terrorists. They are the ones who have money to the LTTE to win elections,” he also said.

Also, he charged that the Joint Opposition is making the Vijeyakala’statement a big issue just to cover up the report by the New York Times. (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)

    Ranil said in parlinent mahinda paid 150 million bribery to praba and so he won presidency.then why this idiot more than 3 years didnt take him to court and jail him for this national crime ?.helping praba to kill deserve death penalty.

    This requires a very much more holistic and sober response than merely sacking the minister concerned. Her “slip” shows Tamil sentiment which must be addressed for this country to truly prosper as a peaceful nation. Sadly coming election seem to be more important for the PM than reconciliation among communities.

    SIR, THERE IS NO DOUBT TO TAKE ACTION IN THIS POLITICIAN'S IRRESPONSIBLE STATEMENT AT THE MEETING. BUT THERE IS BALANCE OF PROBABILITIES ON ACTION AGAINST CRIMINAL GROUPS .IN JAFFNA. WHY CAN'T GOVERNMENT CONTROL SWARD GROUPS SUCH AVAA AND ROX. WHO IS BEHIND THIS.

    Who said LTTE need to be back not people of the country. They know what happened then frustrations within the country make people in. Higher state tslk of LTTE by dome military rule bring hitler to the country rtc. They all bad to freethinking open minded society with free speech. So we all must intensifies reconciliation process credit opportunities for development by the citizens and government in all parts of the country not yo depend on Foreign powers to build this nation. Talk not action will sure to make the nation fail
