The Commander of the Security Forces in Jaffna, Major General Mahesh Senanayake asserted on Saturday that there would never be another war in Sri Lanka.

Briefing the media on the present situation in the North he opined that the presence of the army in the North had helped the citizens greatly and their services are greatly acclaimed.

He said that despite this consensus building up the TNA politicians are clamouring for the removal of the army from the North claiming that the war had ended seven years ago. The Chief Minister of Northern Province C.V. Wigneswaran had been quoted as having said in Vavuniya and some other places in the North that the Army in the North should be replaced by the police in providing security to the people in the North, he added.

Army had been having a very close rapport with the people at all religious functions and in disaster in the North. The war which dragged on for a number of years had apparently distanced the Army from interacting with the people, but now it is time for the people to realise who the Army and other security sections really are. They can now present their problems to the nearest Army camp and obtain redress and also submit to them any appeals for assistance, he stated.(Romesh Madushanka)

    If you are so confident there will never be another war, why is the government spending millions of dollars to buy those old transport planes? Obviously SOME CROOK IS GETTING A BIG COMMISSION.

    Why is the army making political comments? Where in the world did you see disciplined armies making comments such as this?

    Well said commander, keep the spirits up. Army should be present in the North permanently.

    War? I though it was terrorism.

    Nihal Amarasekera Monday, 13 June 2016 03:05 PM

    Whether we like it or not to accept there WAS terrorism/war in the North/East of Sri Lanka. Now, the suspicious factor (justifiably or not) on both sides at play.

    Don't put your guard down, those terrorists are unpredictable.

    Sheri Monday, 13 June 2016 06:45 PM

    Absolutely! The people in the North is in peace because of the Army - they have said so. The Commander has the authority to voice an opinion.
