Former LTTE Eastern Commander and Resettlement Deputy Minister Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan alias Karuna  invited leading LTTE Diaspora activist V. Rudrakumaran and his followers to visit Sri Lanka and witness first hand the ongoing development in the North and East.

“The pro-LTTE Diaspora has been brainwashed. People like Rudrakumaran have formed the so called transnational government and have mobilized people (in the diaspora). What we have to do is to work around them. We have to invite all of them here to witness the ongoing development work and to see how happy the people are,” he said.

Muralitharan said the members of the Disapora should not be neglected. “We shouldn’t neglect the diaspora, because all of them are Sri Lankans. If we neglect the Dispora the problems will continue to crop up. We have to deal with them, talk and explain matters to them. This way the problems can be solved,” he said.

The Deputy Minister pointed out that the External Affairs Ministry has to take the initiative in this regard. “The External Affairs Ministry must make sure that this dialogue is organized, many who have come to the country and seen what is happening have told me that they realize the true picture (and not the false propaganda)” he said.

“Some of these people of the diaspora need a problem for personal gains like getting their PR and other things, so for them there will always be a problem” he said.

Commenting on the presence of Military in the North, the Deputy Minister denied allegations that the Army was taking over civilian land. “The army is there for the safety and the presence is like it is in any other part of this country. There is no land grabbing or anything of the sort” he said.(Hafeel Farisz)

    Scum invites scum....ane kale, wane wase

    Muraly Sunday, 15 July 2012 06:24 AM

    Were is KP Karuna ?

    Meenachchi Saturday, 14 July 2012 04:53 AM

    11% of the schools are closed because 50% has emigrated. Not bad!

    bandara Sunday, 15 July 2012 08:03 AM

    before inviting Rudrakumar why does'nt Karuna bring back his family to live in SL

    M.Sivananthan Saturday, 14 July 2012 05:53 AM

    The so called TGTE is now splitted into many factions over the sharing of the properties which were bought during the days of the LTTE.

    Karuna is really a person who can command some sections of the Tamils and make their life happy.

    Imran Hussein Saturday, 14 July 2012 05:54 AM

    Who says LTTE was defeated? They are ruling the country.
    Terror everywhere in the land, can anyone deny that?

    RAJU Saturday, 14 July 2012 06:01 AM

    RUBBISH, WE KNOW THAT YOU ARE DEVELOPING YOUR POCKET AND YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS POCKETS. WHO CARE YOU AND YOUR PRESNT POLITICAL ACTIVITIES, IF YOU HAVE GUTS GO IN FRONT OF THE PEOPLE WITHOUT SECURITY.

    bandula Sunday, 15 July 2012 10:36 AM

    Mr Karuna our tradition is to invite evryone including an enemy but you should be in a position to invite others. Now is a good opportunity for you as the Eastern Provincial election is on the way. Go there, meet your people, contest the election on your own and see whether you gather any support and win. If you can win what you said about development may be right.

    idiot Saturday, 14 July 2012 06:31 AM

    This is another Sri Lankan Govt's blunder trying to use Karuna to win thearts of the Tamil Diaspora. Diaspora have their relatives living in the North and East and know exactly what goes on there.

    ROBERT Saturday, 14 July 2012 07:02 AM

    Hahaha..... just booked ONE WAY AIR TICKET,......... NO MORE RETURN.

    The God Father Saturday, 14 July 2012 07:13 AM

    Looks like karuna wants some more money.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Saturday, 14 July 2012 04:36 PM

    Pradeep, Karuna is an actor too. To pacify MR he will even kneel down to him and worship. To servive, he has to utter something, that is what he is doing, nothing special.

    Godagampala Rohana Saturday, 14 July 2012 04:40 PM

    You got it God Father. Karuna was a hunter in the jungle those days now he is civiilized as because he is under the petty coat of MR earning in Millions for nothing, this is also a business deal for him.

    Amarathunga Chandika Saturday, 14 July 2012 04:45 PM

    Hopefully his (Karuna's) final ticket proberbly. Anney pow.

    peeda mossa Saturday, 14 July 2012 04:43 PM

    Simple answer. Even if the government makes the North and East Utopias, yet the TNA will win elections. That is the voters' mindset.

    peeda mossa Saturday, 14 July 2012 04:55 PM

    When was your last visit to Sri Lanka, Thanga ?

    Tamilan Saturday, 14 July 2012 05:15 PM

    Good investment on you, still you are trying to be too smart... tamils are not a stupid, OK...We are TAMILS, Now you can play, not too long ... let see.

    jeevan Sunday, 15 July 2012 05:40 PM

    Stupid Moron, thank to GOD that you are still alive.

    Lanka Liar Sunday, 15 July 2012 01:27 AM

    Repaying the hospitality offered by Sri Lanka. If not for this problem Sivnathan would have been a Siva No Than. Yet you talk about respect. Do you know what it is. Do not step into unknown territory. Perhaps another free trip to Sri Lanka and some massage on somewhere. Your masters expect more from you. Karuna Mathya Basil Mathaya Gota Mathaya.. By the way it is cleaning time in your masters hoiuse, Better get ready for work.

    cessch Sunday, 15 July 2012 02:06 AM

    the ltte is the best thing that was going for the tamils. i got a feeling the war is not over yet.

    Pradeep Saturday, 14 July 2012 03:20 AM

    Simple question: If what Karuna says is true, why is the TNA who says the opposite always winning the elections in the North East?

    Thanga Saturday, 14 July 2012 03:30 AM

    Karuna is not an ordinary traitor. He is a shameless traitor. What good is development when the 400,000 Tamils remain as IDPs in make-shift tarpaulin huts while their lands are used
    to construct army/naval/air force bases, cantonments, quarters for war heroes, restaurants, luxury hotels, runways, Buddhist viharas, stupas, statues etc.? Tamils don’t want roads, bridges, culverts etc. they want their lands
    and basic rights to jobs, employment, education and freedom to live the way they wish like the Sinhalese in the south. In the Jaffna peninsula out of 491 schools 67 schools have been closed. Likewise, in Vavuniya out of 107 schools 14 are closed, in Kilinochchi out of 112 schools 18 are closed, in Mullaitheevu district out of 126 schools 7 are closed, in Mannar out of 197 schools 3 are closed. In all 11 percent of the schools are closed. Reason? These schools are occupied by the Sinhalese Army/Navy/ Air force.
    Yet Karuna the turncoat has

    Thanga Saturday, 14 July 2012 03:30 AM

    the gall to invite Urudrakumaran to see development?
    Not a single house destroyed during the war has been re-built for Tamils in the North and East.
    Karuna is free to lick the boots of his masters, but not in the name of the Tamil people.
