Revival of separatism if Fonseka won - Weera Vidhana
Though around 40 percent of the voters had not chosen to vote for
President Mahinda Rajapaksa all of them had not known the danger to
which the country would have plunged into on January 26, convenor of the
Expatriates for Sri Lanka group and a senior member of the Weera Vidhana
Movement Senaka Rajapakse told the Daily News yesterday.
He said a majority of the opposition forces that backed the NDF
candidate Sarath Fonseka were aiming to revive separatism and divide the
country had Fonseka won the election,
He said the separatist forces led by the LTTE proxy TNA assisted by
the UNP and strangely the JVP had told their electors in the North and
East they would be able to revive the so-called homeland in the North
and East if they could defeat President Mahinda Rajapaksa. Though some
people and groups who supported the NDF candidate were not aware of it,
his campaign was fully aimed at taking the country to anarchy during
which the separatist forces would take control once again.
“We Sri Lankans living and working abroad were more aware of the
machinations and the movements of the terrorist sympathizers and
activists living in the west and that was why we decided to come home
and support President Rajapaksa’s bid for a second term.”
As the Parliamentary elections will be held in the near future we
will remain committed to ensure that the UPFA was returned to Parliament
with a bigger majority.
This country has to be saved from the revival of a separatist
terrorist movement and their sympathizers.
President Mahinda Rajapaksa was the only national leader who could
achieve that objective and safeguard the territorial integrity and
unitary status of the country,” he also said.
