If Prabhakaran had surrendered, he would have been with the Rajapaksa family now and also have become Chief Minister, Former Army Commander and General Secretary of the New Democratic Party Sarath Fonseka said in Jaffna on Saturday.
“During the war no (LTTE) Senior Leaders surrendered, but those such as KP and Daya Master in particular, who surrendered are now with the family of President Rajapaksa.”
He charged that the present Jaffna Commander Mahinda Hathurusinghe was helping the government.
“Keeping about four to five soldiers as handymen, he has been carrying out propaganda in support of independent candidates, who are contesting on behalf of the government,” he said.
“He is also getting the posters of anti-government candidates removed. Due to such dishonest Army commanders, proper duties cannot be fulfilled, while about 95% of the Army personnel are honest, the rest are used by the government in its nefarious activities,” he charged.
