Convening a media briefing, Minister Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka responded to criticisms levelled by the Joint Opposition over a comment he made on a previous occasion.
He noted that he came into his position of army commander by spilling sweat and blood for 35 years – and it was not because of Mahinda Rajapaksa’s blessing.
He added that when Prabhakaran wanted to divide the country according to his political vision, he never attempted to attack the families of the soldiers who were fighting with him; but Mahinda attacked him with fear because he contested against him at the election in a democratic manner, and also threw him to jail over false allegations.
Explaining further he added that Mahinda Rajapaksa is a more despicable person than Prabhakaran.
