The UNP cannot agree with the statement made by its MP Wijayakala Maheswarwan on the late LTTE leader Prabahakaran, one of its MPs said today.

Ms Maheshwaran recently said LTTE leader Prabahakaran could have been the Prime Minister of this country had he been alive today.

UNP MP Hector Appuharmy told a media briefing that his party could not agree with the statement made by Ms Maheshwaran. “We condemn this statement,” he said while recalling that the LTTE was accused of causing destruction to the country.

“Ms Maheswaran may have come out with her own opinion but it is not the opinion of the rest of us in the party,” he added.(Yohan Perera)

    He chose the democratic path and dropped terrorism. His support was enormous to nail the big guy. So he deserved what he got.

    She is voicing out her opinion, it does not mean the whole race is backing her. It is at these times we all Sri Lankans must be together.

    If he had become our PM or President I wonder how many of us will be still living! Send this lady to Angoda soon as possible!

    At least she has spine. She stands up to her own people. Unlike other UNPiers who were shouting "Not Alimankada but gone to Pamankada".

    Sheri Friday, 30 December 2016 09:56 PM

    Jamalji Thursday, 29 December 2016 05:50 PM

    What she said was the general opinion of Tamils ? I congratulate her for making this statement.

    Mason Thursday, 29 December 2016 06:21 PM

    She is entitled to her opinion, as long as it is not the reflected opinion of the UNP.

    sobers Thursday, 29 December 2016 06:21 PM

    Majority of the Tamils living in Srilanka condemn this statement.

    Avisenna Thursday, 29 December 2016 07:47 PM

    This is the type of reconciliation efforts of the tamil leaders that Sinhalese people are expected to embrace. If this was uttered by a Sinhalese leader, he/she would have been condemned by the government, the opposition, the NGO cabal and the rest of the western world.

    Truth Thursday, 29 December 2016 08:44 PM

    A couple of years ago a statement like this would have created riots in the south. Not anymore!!! People have become more tolerance towards racist comments from both sides.

    Boonda Thursday, 29 December 2016 08:55 PM

    A coin has other side too. Even if Pakistan denies Ghandi struggled for its independence too. By fighting against the Indian army, Prabhakaran saved Sri Lanka from breaking up. The fact recognised by the then president Premadesa.
