The failure on the part of the authorities concerned to proscribe the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) after the end of the war is a mistake since its MPS are now encouraging the resurgence of LTTE, minister Sarath Weerasekara said.

Minister of Public Security Rear Admiral Sarath Weerasekara told Parliament yesterday, the “Nazi Party” ceased to exist after the defeat of Hitler and so did Khmer Rouge in Cambodia when Pol Pot was killed.

However, the TNA which is the political arm of LTTE did not cease to exist after Prabhakaran was killed. This is a mistake. TNA MPS who promote extremism should be responsible if LTTE emerges once again,” the Minister said.

He said political leaders should get the credit of the war victory as per the global norm. “It was considered UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill was given the credit initially while the military leaders were given the credit later. There cannot be a war without politics,” he said. He said there are no middlemen in a terrorist war. “Either you are a terrorist or not. There cannot be a middleman in a war, “he said.

    Why don't you put that accusation to TNA politicians?

    This man is racist. How could we reconcile with our Tamil brothers and sisters when this man utter racist remarks. Gota has to control him.

    Jeeves Friday, 04 December 2020 12:55 PM

    Very correct observation. Perhaps now is the time to correct that mistake. TNA do not progress our country, but hinder it.

    Have to dismantle TNA. I too feel TNA is LTTE branch. Need to do very quickly.

    Sri Sathi Friday, 04 December 2020 05:31 PM

    I have never seen such a racist

    likewise, countries should ban war criminals around the world. Otherwise, these unpunished war criminals can recommit crime against humanity again

    How about JVP that includes Wimal, they were also from a terrorist organisation. Minister you are showing your inbuild racist trait.

    Antony Jude Friday, 04 December 2020 05:51 PM

    Weerasekara is a racist and murderer. Having a person like Weerasekara in the government is very dangerous for the peace and reconciliation of the country.

    Manthanamutha Friday, 04 December 2020 06:55 PM

    What about JVP then who wanted the whole country by the same terror?

    Lucifer Friday, 04 December 2020 07:20 PM

    Why don't you ban everything that opposes you as a terrorist organization and cremate them all? Now that you have 20 mandate, continue with your tyranny!

    Who is a terrorist Saturday, 05 December 2020 01:25 AM

    "Terrorist" is a relative term. One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter and hero.

    Udaya Mohotti Saturday, 05 December 2020 12:55 PM

    It is the time to bring strict law stop glorification Tamil terrorism and separatism. In that way it can stop terrorism of TNA
