Tamil National Alliance (TNA) MP M. A. Sumanthiran told Parliament on Wednesday (20) that he had not seen any protesters unleashing violence.
The MP said that it had been only the police who used excessive force which was quite blatant, and that had resulted in the death of one person in Rambukkana.
“I saw a message from the President via twitter, in which he says “I urge all to refrain from violence as they protest”. Now I have not seen any protesters indulging in violence. It has been only the police who have used excessive force which is quite blatant, and that has now resulted in the death of one person. Death of only one person is confirmed. The fate of few others is not known,” he said.
