Defense secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa has told the Divaina news paper that the Govt is keeping an eye on many people like the leader of the National Unity front Mr.Asad Sally, who are trying to push extremism in the country.
Mr.Secretary says that when Prabhakaran was taking arms in the early days politicians like Amiththalingam had defiened it as teenage horseplay. But he reminded that finally even Mr.Amiththalingam had to pay the price with his life.
Pointing out that the reason for arresting Mr.Asad Sally was his statements made in Tamilnadu which compells the extremists to take arms, Mr.Rajapaksa said that such things will not be tolarated while he is in charge.
He also said that he is aware of the people who are sheading “crocadile tears” about Mr.Sally’s arrest.
