Minister Dallas Alahapperuma has said that it is the present Government that eliminated Prabhakaran and the era, when people lived in apprehension due to the activities of the LTTE.
The Minister said that the LTTE was not supposed to be called a terrorist organization. He said that Prabhakaran was to be addressed as Mr. Prabhakaran. The so called Heroes Day speech of the LTTE was transmitted to the world. The Western Media Personnel arrived in the country to report the creation of a new state and its acceptance by the UN. He said that the map of Sri Lanka would have been different if President Mahinda Rajapaksa did not come to power in 2005 as the country was to be separated across Puttalam to Yala. He said that the shape of the map would have been similar to a half crescent moon.
The Minister expressed these views at a function held to handover a two storied building constructed at the Methodist School in Urugamuwa Matara to the students. The Minister pointed out the necessity to create a generation of students who appreciate local things. Education Minister of the Southern Province Chandima Rasaputhra also participated in the occasion.
