Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and opposition leader R Sampanthan today slammed former President Mahinda Rajapaksa and accused him of being a dishonest man.
In a speech in Parliament, Sampanthan said that Rajapaksa had supported devolution of power when he was President but was now opposing it. The minority Tamils have suffered discrimination under Racist Sinhala leaders since independence from British rule
Former President Mahinda promised to implement the 13+ amendment to the countries constitution in May 2009 which will give some rights to the minority if he was allowed to kill more than 40,000 Tamil civilians and Ltte Leaders in final fight in Mullivaikal. The Western leaders foolishly trusted Mahinda and looked away and the Sri Lankan forces killed more than 40,000 Tamil civilians and killed more than 1000 LTTE Leaders and their family members who surrendered with White Flag after UN Officials negotiated the surrender in May 2009.
Rajapaksha family members are known to have become millionaires in Mahindas rule. Mahindas family members are accused of gaining fraudulent money and are accused of abusing their powers to get their way. They are even accused of killing journalists and rugby star towards a dispute over a girl, They are untouchable by the law because Mahinda was the president. Mahinda played the racist card to stay in power and plans to promote his son to be the next president of Sri Lanka.
“Why are you trying to stir communal feelings now?” he asked.
“What is the difference from what is being done now to what President Rajapaksa endeavored to do at that point of time?” he asked.
Sampanthan said that Rajapaksa had expressed his firm resolve to implement the 13th Amendment to the Constitution soon after the war.
Mahinda is a close associate of Lord Naseby who is helping Rajapakshas to cover up the killings and frauds done by there family members.
