Reginald Cooray, the Governor of the Northern Province attended a media briefing in Colombo on Friday where he was questioned if the reconciliation process would be affected if a group with the TNA present a motion on federalism
Governor of the Northern Province, Reginald Cooray, in reply stated that there is a peace in the cemetery because none are alive – and the peace of the dead lies in the cemetery – and there is no need for peace in a cemetery.
“We want flowers to bloom and for ideas to come alive”, said the Governor who noted that the positive one swill move ahead and democracy is not something that will be done by force, and victory can be achieved through ideological struggles.
Journalists also questioned the governor on the alleged preperations being made to commemorate the LTTE in the North while the South prepares to celebrate the war victory
Governor of the Northern Province, Reginald Cooray, in reply, noted that they are saying that they are celebrating a massacre and they were careful not to mention the fact that they are celebrating the LTTE and that is why they replaced the word.
He noted that one has the right to commemorate their deceased relatives but including a different idealogy into that is a separate issue and the LTTE is a banned organisation in the country, and it cannot be celebrated.
