Addressing a function at Campbell Park, Colombo to mark the 66th anniversary of the SLFP, he said the legal action filed against Jayasuriya was not a matter for Sri Lanka, but a matter beyond the seas.
He went onto say that he would not dance to the tune of NGOs, but would work together with only the NGOs that loved the country.
The president said that no Prabhakaran would have been born had either the Bandaranaike-Chelvanayagam pact or the Dudley-Chelvanayagam pact been implemented.
Ex-president Chandrika Kumaratunga, former prime minister D.M. Jayaratne, other leading SLFP politicians and party supporters from across the country participated.
