Opposition Leader, R. Sampanthan yesterday criticized former President MP Mahinda Rajapaksa for inciting racial disharmony during the campaign of the recently concluded local government elections.
“During the early stage of their campaign, Mahinda Rajapaksa said that Tamil Eelam was blooming again. If you continue behaving the way you have, Eelam will bloom; it will bloom out of your own lotus bud,” Sampanthan said.
The Opposition Leader made these observations during the parliamentary debate on the current political situation in the country.
“We want a solution in a united, undivided, indivisible and single country. We have made our position clear. It is wrong to instigate communal feelings against a single community while we are demanding a political solution,” Sampanthan further noted.
