Bahu’s advice to stop Vijayakala’s laments (Video) Featured

The only way to stop the lamentation of Vijayakala Maheswaran who is clearly disturbed by the increasing crimes in the North due to the lapses in law and order in the region is to grant police powers to the Northern Provincial Council, said the Leader of the Nawa Samasamaja Party Dr. Wickramabahu Karunaratne.

He condemned the government for failing to honour their election pledge to decentralise powers to the provinces.

Vijayakala made a statement that in order for women and children to live in the North and East peacefully and safely, there is a need for the LTTE to return, which was heavily criticised, leading her to resign from her post as the State Minister for Women and Child Affairs.

“Saying that the LTTE rule is good is an outcry and nothing else,” Wickramabahu told reporters.

“Is this a country that leaves no room for a woman to lament about the agonies of the people?”

 Some fools in the UNP:

Dr. Wickramabahu referred to some of the UNP members who criticised Vijayakala as ‘fools’.

“Some of these UNP fools are attempting to interpret Vijayakala’s lamentation as something totally wrong.”

He noted that based on the whims of some extremist elements, it is wrong to misinterpret Vijayakala’s outcry and punish her for her statement.
