Government asserts commitment to National unity

sajith-premadasa-unp-deputy-leaderThe Government is committed to National unity, Housing and Construction Minister Sajith Premadasa said.

He said that the cohabitation Government will work towards establishing reconciliation after taking over a country which was divided.

The Minister said that the stand on reconciliation was asserted following the 70th anniversary celebrations of the United National Party held over the weekend.

He also noted that attempts were made to prevent the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) from holding a successful event to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the SLFP recently but that failed.

Premadasa said that the large turnout at the SLFP and the UNP events was a clear indication of the strength of both parties.

The Minister said that the unity between the UNP and SLFP has prevented those who made money out of the war from getting a place in society. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Commitment to political and historical truth and resolving issues only will lead to commitment to national unity.

    The truth hurts offenders and makes them to rebel agaainst it when they live in falsehood and nurture it.

    When the UNSG Ban Ki Moon, visited SL last week, he told frankly that made some Sinhalese to be uncomforttable and rebellious.

    The GSL stepped aside from the stated truth and “played to the Sinhalese gallery” and missed the opportunity to speak out the truth to the masses.

    The two important truthful matters the UNSG revealed were;

    1. The UN failed to carry out its duty during the last days of war and protect the Tamils.

    2. The masesacre of Tamils in SL and the attitude of GSL was similar to the massacres in Rwanda and Bosnia.

    In Rwanda, one tribe (the Hutus) massacre4d the othe tribe (the Tutsis) and so was in Bosnia.

    Likewise, in SL, the Sinhala soldiers massacred 100,000 Tamils in the “no fire zone area”, during the last days of the war.

    Those who feel uncomfortable to face this truth by the UNSG should sit down, be cool, think and reconcile to this truth.
