Environmental and Natural Resources Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka yesterday demanded the UNP not to put the blame of the LTTE crimes and the UNP’s wrong political decisions on the innocent Sinhala and Tamil People.
Referring to a statement made by the opposition that the Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim communities were responsible for Jaffna Library arson, Black July incidents and other crimes etc. Minister Ranawaka emphatically stated that the innocent Tamil, Sinhala and Muslim people had no involvement in those incidents.
He emphasized that the Jaffna Library was set on fire during the UNP regime and it was not by innocent ordinary Sinhala people but by the UNP thugs transported in trains. On these grounds the innocent Sinhala people were not responsible for those crimes but the UNP.
