The Bodhu Bala Sena Organization states that Jaffna District TNA parliamentarian S. Sridharan should be arrested.
The Ampara Municipal Council also unanimously passed a resolution stating that legal action should be taken against MP Sridharan.
The National Freedom Front alluded today that there may be a link between the comments made by MP Sridharan two days ago and the murder of the EPDP controlled Delft Pradeshiya Sabha chairman Daniel Rexeon.
Minister S. B. Dissanayaka claimed that the statement made by TNA MP S. Sridharan was one that supports terrorists on the same day the statement was made.
However, despite the efforts of several parties to commemorate terrorists in the North yesterday claiming it to be “Mahaviru day” security forces prevented such activities.
3 individuals who attempted such a commemoration in the Mannar – Murukkan region were arrested by the police.
However, TNA Northern Provincial Councillor M. K. Sivajilingam stated that a funeral wreath was placed in front of his residence in Wel – weti – thurei this morning.
The police have received reports that stones were thrown at the residencies of Northern Provincial Agricultural Minister Ayin – gara – nesan and Provincial Councillor E. Arnold.
Sources in the North stated that such attacks were carried out on the houses of those who attempted to commemorate the terrorists.
However, Police Media Spokesperson SSP Ajith Rohana stated that while it is illegal to commemorate terrorists, it is also illegal to harass others using that as an excuse and that those engaging in such activities will be prosecuted by the law.
