Minister of Power and Energy and Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) General Secretary Patali Champika Ranawaka said today the cabinet paper submitted to grant government compensation for injured LTTE terrorists had to be withdrawn after he protested against it.

“Some ministers submitted a cabinet paper proposing that the injured LTTE terrorists should be compensated by the government. I strongly objected it and it had to be withdrawn,” he said.

Minister Ranawaka said JHU was strongly opposed to hosting a festival of Diaspora as claimed by the Foreign Affairs Ministry and that hosting such a discussion would instigate racisms and terrorism.

“There has been no discussion within the government about this. We do not think hosting such a discussion with organizations banned by the defense ministry through a gazette notification would ensure peace in the country. It is an instigation of terrorism,” Mr. Ranawaka said.

He said if this issue was to be resolved, those Tamil Diaspora organizations should accept the unitary state of the country and that such issues could not be resolved holding discussions while they were still stick to Tamil Eelam and added that it was done to achieve petty political ends.

“This government has not received any mandate to have discussion with separatists. It should obtain a mandate to have such discussions,” he said. (Ajith Siriwardana)

    People Like Champika Ranawaka are first class hypocrites. It is Champika and his ilk, who are responsible for the creation of LTTE and they were also behind the church and mosque attacks perpetrated by the BBS. If Sri Lanka has to prosper it is the likes of Champika whose political powers should be stripped clean. I wont be surprised, if the ISIL will infiltrate Sri Lanka and create chaos and pandemonium if people of Champikas degenerate thinking are allowed to talk.

    The prime requirement of the country is to re- unite all the ethnic groups in Sri Lanka in simultaneous with the development drive. Winning a war not fruitful without winning the hears and minds of Tamil brothers. It is kindly requested from both Sinhala and Tamil raciast politicians keep your personal political agendas aside let mother Sri Lanka to move forward toward prosperity.

    The LTTE fought a war against an elected government. That is a serious incident where treason is the charge and must be legally imprisoned. Not compensated for the act.

    yahapalluwa Friday, 12 June 2015 06:34 AM

    This same UNP in 2001-2004 did same helping terrorist expose deep penetration unit. You help them to come back to power

    King Cobra Friday, 12 June 2015 07:09 AM

    Instead of compensation by the state why not issue a life insurance policy on each terrorist in case of disability/death. This would ease the burden on the state by reducing the pressure as the publicity would be minimized and only the premium will be paid by the state. .

    Mr. Champika: you need to have a long spoon when you dine with the Devil.

    Some body is always FOOL Friday, 12 June 2015 08:11 AM

    This kind Of Compensation Is Far Better Than An Electric Chair in Hague ( or few ) .. there will always be few people who are adamant to be fools .. ( after all we eradicated the terrorism and robbed the country to the tunes of BILLION dollars .. these compensations are PEaNuTs !!!)
