Rajiva Wijesinghe is opening avenues for the Tiger ideology – Minister Weerawansa
Minister Wimal Weerawansa's LankaCnews website states that UPFA parliamentarian Rajiva Wijesinghe was opening avenues for the LTTE ideology.
The website states the comment made by MP Rajiva Wijesinghe that Sri Lanka would not allow a referendum to be held in the country like in Sudan regardless of international pressure, was an undue intervention on the part of the parliamentarian.
The story states, “Prof. Rajiva Wijesinghe has stated that Sudan had to hold a referendum because of the downfall in their economy and
the government was unable to provide the necessary facilities to the people and that such a situation has not taken place in Sri Lanka.
“A spokesperson from a national movement in the country told us that Wijesinghe through his comments have paved the way for the namesake Tamil Diaspora to begin a new social debate based on the separatist ideology. He said that at a time when there has been a defeat militarily and ideologically, no responsible member should respond to comments made by members who are remnants of the LTTE to websites that are supportive of the movement.
“He said with great confidence that the points made by Rajiva Wijesinghe in his statement could be easily broken by the LTTE sympathizers and that making personal comments without considering the ideology creates an opening for the separatist ideology to re-enter the society.
He further noted that the opening would help the separatist ideology to be systematically brought back into the limelight and therefore, it has been a shrewd move to create such an opening.”
