Sarath is only a tool to eliminate Mahinda – Ranil, in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Sunday, 13 December 2009, 08:18 GMT]
“The opposition intends to use Sarath Fonseka only as a tool to eliminate Mahinda Rajapakse from the presidential post; people should not be afraid of him because he was an army commander,” Ranil Wicremasinghe, the leader of the opposition said Saturday night in Jaffna at a press meet held in ‘Yaa’lpaadi’ guest house, sources in Jaffna said. “The failure of the people in the North and East to vote in the last presidential election enabled Mahinda to become president and the resulting sufferings of the Tamils is now clear to them,” Ranil further said.

“The Tamils had never experienced the degree of destruction during previous regimes as it had under Mahinda Rajapakse; we will create a new political constitution and find a permanent solution for the ethnic issue once Sarath Fonseka assumes the post of President,” Ranil said.

When one of the journalists said that Minister Douglas Devananda had said that a known devil is better than an unknown devil, Ranil responded that he is happy to hear Douglas Devananda confirming that Mahinda was a devil, in a humorous vein.
