JHU parliamentarian criticizes General Sarath Fonseka

[TamilNet, Thursday, 26 November 2009, 15:45 GMT]
Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) parliamentarian Venerable Uduwe Dhammaloka Thera Thursday at a press conference made a scathing attack on General (retd) Sarath Fonseka, the opposition backed common candidate that he (Sarath) was a part of an international conspiracy aimed at making way for the intervention of foreign troops into the country. He declined to elaborate the allegation. The Buddhist monk is leading a group of the JHU.

“General Fonseka has become a pawn to forces that had attempted to disrupt the war efforts with directives from some western countries. He is not suitable for political office, President or otherwise. If Sarath Fonseka becomes President of the country, a multi-national force would enter the country. That would be disastrous to the future of the country,” he added.

He declined to elaborate on his allegation when pressed for details by media persons attending the briefing.

“President Mahinda Rajapakse and Defence Secretary Gothabaya Rajapakse should also share the credit for the war victory. General Sarath Fonseka cannot take all the credit for himself” said Ven. Uduwe Dhammaloka Thera.
