The Army supplied hard drugs during Mahindha’s regime-Sumanthiran accuses directly
The TNA MP, M.A. Sumanthiran accused directly that, the drugs were supplied to the North by the Army and that the root cause of all the disturbances in the North. The anti-social activities in the North now are the outcome of this. Mahindha’s regime is responsible for this situation, he accused directly.
Mahindha, who did not utter a word in condolence to the murder of the Pungudutheevu girl was moaning that terrorism had raised its head in the North.
