They also added that no political leader who loves the country could make such a betraying statement.

The leading ministers stating that the UNP urged into Deputy Leader Karu Jayasuriya to make this statement to get their need fulfilled through foreign power requested the public to stand against this treacherous statement.

Speaking at a press conference held at the Parliament complex in connection with this statement UPFA Government Secretary Minister Susil Premajayantha stated that the Government would mere a No Confidence motion against Karu Jayasuriya who made this treacherous statement.

The Minister added that Karu Jayasuriya alleged through the newspaper that war crimes were committed in Sri Lanka. This statement has been made against the country and its war heroes by Karu Jayasuriya.

Minister Premajayantha further stated he could have made this statement before the Lessons Learnt and Reconcilliation Commission rather than tarnishing the image of the country among the international community. President Mahinda Rajapaksa appointed this commission to study the incident during that periods.

Minister Susil Premajayantha further added that Karu Jayasuriya has forgotten about 20 to 30 thousand youth who disappeared during the UNP regime. He added this statement was an attempt of the UNP to gain foreign support to get their needs fulfilled.

They added that as the UPFA Ministers they vehemently condemn the UNP’s treacherous act. SLFP General Secretary and Health Minister Maithripala Sirisena said that the year 2011 will be a juncture in the economic development of the country following the elimination of terrorism and now the Government has doubts whether the UNP is working closely with the pro LTTE groups against this country and the people as the UNP’s behavior fits the pro LTTE groups’ agenda.

National Freedom Front Leader and Minister Wimal Weerawansa addressing the media said that Karu Jayasuriya who calls for a probe now joined with the Government those days with another 16 members to support the humanitarian operation of the Government to liberate the Tamil community.

He makes this statement against the war heroes who liberated the nation and our sacred Motherland. Minister Weerawansa stated Karu voiced the interests of the LTTE. He added that this is a betrayal of the most foul nature in the recent past. He also said that this statement is good evidence for those who attempt to say war crimes were committed in Sri Lanka.

Mass Media and Information Minister Keheliya Rambukwella addressing the media stated that this treacherous statement is made by Karu Jayasuriya who pretended to be clean. This statement reveals the real nature of Karu Jayasuriya.

The disgrace is for cancelling the speech at the Oxford Union is not for us but for the United Kingdom that claimed it respected freedom of expression. They who claimed that terrorism was a cancer after September 11 incident were afraid of the remnants of a terrorist outfit. But we could defeat the most rich, strongest and ruthless terrorist organization in the world.

Environment Minister Anura Priyadarshana Yapa said the UNP as the Opposition of the country did not support the humanitarian operation and they were convened as a political party. Now Karu Jayasuriya makes a treacherous statement. He added that Karu Jayasuriya should appologise to the entire nation.
