The government has criticised the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) over the comments it has been making on the situation in the north.
UPFA General Secretary Susil Premjayantha said that while the government is engaged in developing the war ravaged areas the TNA is attempting to destabilise those efforts.
He said that while the TNA talks so much about the Tamils in the north they themselves are either staying in Colombo or their family members are overseas.
“Some of these people are getting together with external forces and are attempting to reverse the peace established in the country,” he said.
He said that a lot of people are talking about the 13th Amendment and if it should be 13 plus of 13 minus, but they forget that all this is possible only because the war came to an end.
The Minister said that the government is campaigning to win the provincial council elections in the north.
He also noted that whoever heads a provincial council, they will need to work with the government when developing the area. (Colombo Gazette)
