Opposition MP Dinesh Gunawardane yesterday told the government that it should not by any circumstance allow foreign security forces to enter this country at this moment.

He also urged the government to conduct an investigation into the issuance of Visas to thousands of foreigners under lax conditions.

He told parliament that investigations into the matter should be carried out immediately and said it was pointless asking the IGP to do so.

MP Gunawardane said the government failed to act on information given by the intelligent services and added that it could not get away from the responsibility by claiming that it was not aware of such an attack.

“Information was there on extremist groups since 2016. The Government was well aware of it. It cannot get away saying that it was not aware,” he said.

He said if the government could not defeat this extremist terrorist groups, it should quit and hand over this country to someone who could do it.

He said the country could not be governed when there was a crisis between the President and the Prime Minister and stressed the need to pay way for a new government. (

    Presence of USA and other foreign forces in Sri Lanka would be an invitation for Islamic terrorists for multitude of suicide bomb attacks. Sri Lanka will finally end up as Libya.

    Surely no one wants a large contingent of US troops in Sri Lanka for a long time.

    We need US and other help to bust these terrorists as we got their help against the LTTE. This is a global menace although the terrorists are Sri Lankan. We have to unearth their weapons flow, international networks and financial flow. Sri Lanka cannot do it!

    Similar help came from USA in busting Tamil attempts to buy very dangerous surface to air missiles, floating weapons warehouses, money collection, battling sea tigers and human smuggling.
