Bye Bye Minister Jeyaraj
Posted by sadeepa palliyaguru on April 8, 2008
Hon. M.P Jeyaraj Fernandopulle was assassinated by a LTTE suicide attack. Loss of Jeyaraj is a greater one to Sri Lanka Freedom Party as well as Sri Lanka. Jeyaraj was a promising politician who had the capability of coming to political leadership. He openly condemned the LTTE and it’s atrocities . That must be the reason why he was attacked by LTTE. Up to now LTTE has assassinated scores of tamil politicians and diplomats known to oppose their opinion.
LTTE never tolerates resistance. Therefore the international community should not interpret the silence of wanni people as an acceptance of LTTE policies. Prabakaran belives only in the polpot policy of mass murdering people.
The tragic death of Jeyaraj brings a message to all the VIP’s. CID states that their were serious security flows regarding security for that particular event at Weliveriya. People were not checked and no firm security was available during that occasion. The minister might have compromised his security due to the sense of protection in his own electorate. However the ruthless LTTE took advantage of this security breech.
The comments on this Asian Tribune article shows the angry remarks about the police and organizers , which i too think is just. I take this quote which is striking.
There was no security at the time of incident at all!
Who said there were Elite forces or any police? See the attached Video on youtube and see there is only 1 police man with him.
Also He dont have to cross the road to set go the race… He is been directed by a man to the other side of the road where the bomber is!
This is a clear set up! Weliweriya police officers should be fired!
Like I mentioned before “Sri Lankan POLICE IS SO STUPID AS A DONKEY”
Our friend is lost because the stupidity of Police…
Please President… have your security done by SF/Army/Navy/Air force. And also dont go to address public meetings. Stay away from Public.”
