Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has tried to clean former LTTE armed leader Karuna Amman's name from the allegations through a lengthy statement, SJB leader Sajith Premadasa alleged. He made this observation speaking to a propaganda rally held in Piliyandala yesterday (28).
"The honourable Prime Minister of the country has issued a very lengthy statement and Karuna Amman's name has been tried for cleanse at the end.
Cannot the Prime Minister of this country see the severity of Karuna Amman's statement?
While talks with Karuna are on the way proposing him to offer a membership from the Pohottuwa instead of contesting the election, a very lenghty statement has been released today. What does it say at the end? Not to make decisions about the Polls based on such small givings.
I am amazed of the fact that Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa is considering less of Karuna Amman's statement in which he had claimed that he had murdered 3000 Army troops overnight. Please stop offering kindness or empathy to Karuna. The government worshipping Karuna indicates the biggest insult the war heroes who saved this country are given.
I would like to say - when we form a new government gaining power, we will be bringing Karuna before law for his claims on killing 3000 members of the Army, without false acting," he said.
