KP must explain

24 August 2010 05:10 am - 17     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Referring to the remarks of former LTTE leader Kumaran Pathmanathan on the role some politicians from Tamil Nadu in the efforts to arrive at a ceasefire in Sri Lanka's war against the LTTE, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi said Pathmanathan has to explain the facts relating to the war.

Karunanidhi pointed out that KP had contended that MDMK leader Vaiko had stood in the way of a ceasefire.

Quoting KP, he also said that Mr.Vaiko influenced a change in the decision of the LTTE leadership to enter into a ceasefire because if a peace process began, then the DMK and Congress would get credit for such a development.

Also, CPI (M) MLA K. Mahendran had contested the part in which KP had stated that it was Mahendran who conveyed to Vaiko that the LTTE wanted to enter into a dialogue with the Sri Lankan government. It was up to KP to clarify this, he said. (Hindu)

    KP is a national hero of Sri Lanka. What right do you have to demand explanation from him?

    Leslie Tuesday, 24 August 2010 09:32 AM

    KP is an honoured State Guest. He need not explain. The Rajapakses have been told everything in confidence. Moreover it is said KP has money to buy anyone.

    ghost of LTTE ,

    Avi Jonathan Tuesday, 24 August 2010 07:58 AM

    These things should discussed in a open forum by KP, Vaiko, Nediyavan, Castro and Karunanidhi.
    Then only will people know what sought roll have they taken part in LTTE and why exactly they play that particular roll. Then only we can show to the world so called diaspora s nakedness.

    This is what happends at the end when you poke you finger into other affairs, rather than looking after their interests. KP has no choice whatsoever, but has become a mouth piece.

    Ranjana Tuesday, 24 August 2010 06:54 AM

    He should be in Jail not explaining what happend , everyone here knows his rol;e with the LTTE

    Hiran Shanaka Tuesday, 24 August 2010 06:45 AM

    You must be thankful for the fact that KP did not tell all the “things”. Particularly, the things that implicate you to the LTTE

    Mithraka Fernando Tuesday, 24 August 2010 06:35 AM

    At least now mind your own business please!!

    TDDC Tuesday, 24 August 2010 06:18 AM

    We are not interested with ghost story at this junction.

    Govinda Tuesday, 24 August 2010 06:06 AM
