“We must accept that the people in the North have issues,” he asserted.

  1. Sirisena had visited Jaffna more than 13 times but never went to a Buddhist Temple but went to Hindu and Muslim places. People in Jaffna say that Sirisena is the only president they have seen doing so. This is not the way to bring reconciliation to country.

  2. The President is getting alone with the Western programme. Ranil, Mangala and TNA have already accepted the programme.
