President explains reason for LTTE’s creation Featured

President Maithripala Sirisena has blamed the creation of a Prabhakaran, an LTTE and a war on not taking the required decisions and steps at the appropriate times to resolve problems in the country.

Addressing a Dipavali celebration at President’s House, he alleged certain extremists were trying to mislead the public over a still non-existent draft for a new constitution.

He said the country had to face a war for nearly three decades due to its problems not being addressed properly and constitutionally.

The president invited all Sri Lankans to unite and build peace and reconciliation.

He stressed that only a report that was to be a basis for a new constitution has been presented to parliament.

Extremists mislead society

While the government is taking steps to build peace with a policy of devolving powers without dividing the country, certain extremist groups are feeding society, including the Buddhist clergy, with wrong information, he charged.

It is important to lay the foundation for a better society free of fear or suspicion by building unity among the communities, said president Sirisena.

Was S.W.R.D. Bandaranaikea victim of int’l conspiracy?

Answering allegations of their being branded international conspirators, he asked the accusers if the late S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike was the victim of an international conspiracy when he signed the 1957-58 pact with S.J.V. Chelvanayagam.

All should understand that it was not due an international conspiracy, but the failure to address the country’s problems that had created a barbaric terrorist like Prabhakaran.

How to make the society better, united and trusted should be understood with wisdom, knowledge and maturity, he said.

The government is working with the pure intention of not allowing the country to face another war, the president added.
