Diverse views were expressed at media conferences today (May 17) on the statement made by Co-Cabinet Spokesperson Minister Rajitha Senaratne during the Cabinet media briefing yesterday.
 
Here, he said naming May 18, which was the date that LTTE leader V. Prabakaran was found dead, as a day of mourning in the Northern Province, is not an issue for the government.
 
Meanwhile, Joint Opposition MP Mahindananda Aluthgamage, after coming out of the Supreme Court attending a court case said this shows that the government is in agreement with taking war heroes to the courts.
 
Addressing the media in Colombo today, MP Udaya Gammanpila said if the terrorists are allowed to be commemorated that all the detainees in prisons should be freed.
 
He said those detainees have not committed large-scale crimes.
 
Meanwhile, the Propaganda Secretary of the JVP, MP Vijitha Herath said that JVP had never acted as a terrorist organization.
 
He said this in response to Minister Senaratne's statement who compared the past actions of the JVP to that of LTTE actions.
 
The MP said people including J. R. Jayawardena and Rajitha Senaratne took steps to outlaw their party.
 
He also said Rajitha Senaratne involved in handling killer squads through 'Pra'.
