Fonseka says new book will give clear picture on war

Sarath FonsekaFormer army commander and Minister of Regional Development, Sarath Fonseka says a book which will be released in the near future will give a clear picture on the war.

Speaking in Parliament today, Fonseka said that while one military officer had recently released a book on the war more books are expected to be released by other officers who were involved in the war against the LTTE.

Fonseka however said that a book which covers his role as army commander will give a more clear picture on incidents related to the war.

Fonseka was speaking in Parliament after Parliament approval was sought for Rs. 592,925,000 for the Ministry of Regional Development for this year.

Recently Major General Kamal Gunaratne released a book on the war but Fonseka accused him of revealing war secrets in the book.

Kamal Gunaratne, who served under Fonseka in the army, however denied the claims that he had revealed war secrets in his recently released book.

Gunaratne had said that all the war secrets he knows will go with him to his grave. Gunaratne was accused of revealing war secrets in his book ‘Road to Nandikadal’ which was released recently. (Colombo Gazette)
