Slain LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran in an interview given to an Indian newspaper had warned about United States attempt to perpetuate and escalate the war in order to establish a base in Trincomalee, Power and Energy Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka said today.

Addressing a meeting in Piliyandala the JHU General Secretary read out the extracts from Prabhakaran’s interview to Cochin based weekly, ‘Week’ published on March 23, 1986.

“The US objective is to perpetuate and escalate the ethnic crisis so that she can gradually set foot on the island and establish a base in Trincomalee…..The US administration has strategic and geopolitical interests in the region. Sri Lanka with its natural harbor in Trincomalee is most strategically located… the objective of the US imperialists is to gradually penetrate the country and eventually bring the island under its sphere of influence and domination” Prabhakaran had reportedly said the Indian newspaper.

Minister Ranawaka said the recent deployment of US marines in Darwin, Australia is very much part of the US expansion policy in Asia – Pacific region which it had been continuing for decades and the numbers of marines will only go to increase in the months to come.

“They will definitely stay beyond the given deadline of 2014” Minister Ranawaka added.

    Victor, we need to understand each other better. More interpreters are needed for official matters - both Sinhala and Tamil. But saying Tamils don't have rights in Sri Lanka is nonsense. Though Sinhalese my father and my grandparents spoke and wrote in Tamil, Sinhala and English. We need more people like that.

    Are you the Minister of Defense or the Minister of Power and Energy? Concentrate on the subject you are responsible for and provide electricity to the public at a reasonable price. This is the problem with Sri Lankan Ministers who talk about everything other than what they are specifically responsible for and try to sell Prabhakaran, U.S.A, War and the Tamil diaspora etc, to cover up their inefficiency.

    how do you know Prabha know?
    did he tell you or did you dream Prabha elling you

    "Learning from the enemy” I have seen this verse at the entrance of the Soosai

    Raymond Punchisingho Friday, 06 April 2012 12:53 AM

    Maybe the honourable minister should have got all the details of this conspiracy from Praba himself, before they shot him and his family.

    podalaJayantha Friday, 06 April 2012 09:45 AM

    Just concentrate in the present and future. Try to solve the electricity crisis without being a another Wimal, Mervyn or Bandula!

    shantha madawela Friday, 06 April 2012 12:54 AM

    Is he knew that electricity bill also increased.

    lutronman Friday, 06 April 2012 01:23 AM

    I had a certain respect for this man for believing in what says & believes. But it has got to a stage he has gone off the rails completely!

    Leela Friday, 06 April 2012 01:05 AM

    When the US navy SEAL scod shot the woman who shielded Bin Laden and shot him in the head whatched by its commander of chief live, didn't even had a postmotem but threw him at sea. Here this rump LTTE podian want to know who shot him?

    Gena Friday, 06 April 2012 02:40 AM

    well said sir,you are genius

    mahendran Saturday, 07 April 2012 12:59 AM

    this man knows only to say something about LTTE or praba by fooling the sinhalese people to get survive in politics.

    mahendran Saturday, 07 April 2012 01:11 AM

    do you know to tell sasthara ?? old stories will not work now.

    Jaya Saturday, 07 April 2012 02:21 AM

    Well said Lal. I have no idea what some of these Tamils are talking about!! Muslims, Burghers and Malays never complain. No wonder they live a happy life. Tamils just keep complaining and winging without just getting on with their lives. They themselves are putting their own people down by publishing these things.

    lal Friday, 06 April 2012 12:23 PM

    Venk, what rights do sinhalalese have Tamils don't? Everybody has the same rights. Muslims, Malays and Burghers don't complain. Tamils started and lost the war, and do you want a prize for that? If you are not a citizen you are in Sri Lanka illegally.

    venk Friday, 06 April 2012 03:45 AM

    How long srilanka govt will tell prabhakaran Stroy. WHat did you do for tamils after winning war against LTTE.
    Give Equal RIghts and treat tamils also as the citizens of Srilanka on Par with Sinhala. Don't illtreat them like slaves and because you won war against LTTE

    jegath Friday, 06 April 2012 03:28 AM

    super telling!

    NAK Friday, 06 April 2012 03:38 AM

    Some people don't seem to like the US being unmasked for all the crimes they commited.But,now the US themself has come on stage.We saw that in geneva.

    DUWI Friday, 06 April 2012 03:39 AM

    Yes, Minister, You are correct. The China has the Hambantota Port. The US wants Trincomalee. That is why India voted with the US at the UNHCR.

    xlntgson Sunday, 08 April 2012 02:10 AM

    Interesting! venks say they don't have equal rights in Sri Lanka, lals say they have. How to resolve this? Who will be the judge, willing and acceptable to both?

    justin barber Friday, 06 April 2012 03:39 AM

    Anyone who knows history knows that Prabha said this in 1986 because then India was anti-america and sri lanka under JR was towing pro america agenda. Prabha said this to score points with Indian leaders

    cxcb Saturday, 07 April 2012 03:02 AM

    lal...lol.
    have another shot and go to bed.

    Bigfoot Thursday, 05 April 2012 04:33 PM

    Dear Sir, Prabakaran is dead and gone. We just need to know as to who shot him. We need a gentleman to take accountability. I think you should concentrate on generating and distributing electricity economically without wasting tax payers money. Get into action.

    Victor Saturday, 07 April 2012 05:20 AM

    I'm a Tamil Lal. The ppl who came to take the cnesus count, were extremely nice and kind. But they couldn't utter a word in Tamil also the census form is completely in Sinhala. We really had a time to help them to fill up the form and it took more than 2 hours. The language appreciation is one of the simple things the Tamil general pulic need urgently. Some Sinhala people never understand this and they always think that all tamils should know sinhala if they want to live in this country. Just think how many of sinhala people encourage their children to speak in tamil wth the tamil children?

    Prasan Thursday, 05 April 2012 04:47 PM

    Well said .

    Fusion Thursday, 05 April 2012 04:59 PM

    Wait a second.....now you believe what Velupillai Prabhakaran said to an Indian newspaper? Did hell just freeze-over..??

    kiribath Thursday, 05 April 2012 05:01 PM

    very old story, it has come to a point that you can not sell the war any more.

    jayasinghe Friday, 06 April 2012 03:22 PM

    When last phase of war US came to rescue group of leaders of LTTE ,and ask GOSL , GOSL asked list of the name of LTTE group . US refused give the list. and they missed the tactic of American politic.now ASIA is stable

    lankashantha Friday, 06 April 2012 07:11 AM

    You and Wimal are enough to destroy all the other people's good works in the international arena and get bad name for our country. Remember you were ready to give Atom Energy in Sri Lanka with the help of America and they rejected it?

    jayantha Friday, 06 April 2012 07:31 AM
