The Matale district party convention of the Jathika Hela Uumaya was held on Saturday under the auspices of Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka.

A large number of people, including district representatives of the Jathika Hela Urumaya, took part in the convention.

General Secretary of the JHU,Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka called on Mahinda Rajapaksa and Gotabhaya Rajapaksa to show at least one instance where they said “they will defeat terrorism” – be it at the 2005 presidential election – or when the Mavilaru Anicut was closed, on June 27,2006.

“They did not say it”, charged the JHU Secretary, who pointed out that they had said they will discuss the matter when they came to power -while they sent 800 million during the war asking “not to bomb their family.”

He added that even though Sarath Fonseka was subject to a bomb attack, when he was the army commander,  and even when the soldiers sacrificed their lives, he did not do anything. And Mahinda started opposing the LTTE only when his brother Gotabhaya was bombed – and that is when he stood with both his feet and decided to go to war.
