Addressing an event held in Tissamaharama on Thursday, Deputy Leader of the United National Party MP Sajith Premadasa, expressed the following views.

[quote]The President of this UPFA government is spreading a story that Ranasinghe Premadasa used his executive powers to fund the terrorists with weapons. And that he, used his executive powers to win the war. It is true that Ranasinghe Premadasa provided weapons to certain factions in the LTTE, but this was a political strategy to divide the terrorists. Who did he give weapons to? He gave weapons to the gentlemanly faction within the LTTE. The main reason for the assassination of my father was because he provided weapons to a gentleman in the LTTE who hoped to bring peace to the country. Weapons weren’t provided to these factions to divide the country, but to divide the terrorists.[/quote]

This event was held to donate clean drinking water through bowsers to the people of the Suduwelipelassa village in the Kirinda area in Tissamaharama.
