Gen. Janaka Perera a valiant War Hero - Prime Minister

Prime Minister Ratnasiri Wickramanayaka yesterday expressed the Government's deep shock and grief over the killing of the North Central Provincial Council Opposition Leader Major General Janaka Perera and several others in a brutal LTTE suicide bomb attack in Anuradhapura on Monday.

Premier before commencing the Emergency debate said whatever political differences they have, Gen. Janaka Perera was a valiant War Hero who has made a lot of sacrifices to safeguard the country.

"The Government does not condone this killing. The Government vehemently condemns this brutal assassination. He was a true gentlemen and a valiant War Hero who has made a lot of contribution to the Army."

The intention of the LTTE terrorists is to assassinate prominent War Heroes, politicians and innocent civilians. Therefore the Government has launched military operations against the terrorists, the Prime Minister said.

Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe said the Co-ordinating Secretary of the North Central Provincial Council Opposition Leader has requested the Police to provide security to the function which was scheduled to be attended by Major General Janaka Perera in Anuradhapura on Monday.

The Opposition Leader also handed over a copy of that letter to the Prime Minister.

Premier responding to the Opposition Leader said as he just received that letter, he will look into it.
