by Zacki Jabbar

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe says that even after the LTTE was defeated, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa failed to ensure the Tamil People’s rights.

Addressing an UNP Local Polls rally in Pothuwil,  on Wednesday,  Wickremesinghe said that instead of uniting all the communities and developing the country after the end of the war , the Rajapaksas adopted a divide and rule policy , by encouraging ethnic and religious conflicts.

Issues confronting the  Tamils were ignored, on the mistaken premise that the LTTE had been defeated, he added.
