The wife of a former top LTTE leader was today sworn in as a minister in Sri Lanka’s northern provincial council.

Ananthi Saseetharan was appointed as the minister of rehabilitation and women’s affairs by Chief Minister C V Wigneswaran in the reshuffle of the northern council of ministers.

Saseetharan’s husband Velayutham Sasitharan alias Elilan was the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE’s) eastern political commissar when the LTTE ran a parallel administration in the North and East provinces.

Saseetharan said she is still looking for justice for her husband whom she claimed had disappeared in the final battle of May 2009 when he had surrendered to the military.

Elilans disappearance was cited by her in many complaints lodged with international rights organisations including the UN Human Rights Council.

    MORE of Wigneswaran’s TREASONOUS activities are on DISPLAY in this DEVISION taken in pursuit of his SEPARATIST IDEOLOGY!


    If there was ONE INDIVIDUAL among the Tamils who has RICHLY BENEFITED from the SUPPORT of his FELLOW SINHALA CITIZENS, it is WIGNESWARAN.

    If HE CANNOT RECIPROCATE that GOOD TREATMENT, just as Lakshman Kadirgarmar did, it just DEMONSTRATES that the INBRED Racism in most Tamils CANNOT BE OVERCOME with RECONCILIATION.

    If we are to have PEACE & SECURITY in Sri Lanka, the Sinhala People have to REMAIN THE DOMINANT COMMUNITY, and IMPLEMENT OUR PRINCIPLES of CO-EXISTENCE without expecting any BUY-IN or ACTIVE COLLABORATION from Tamils.

    To that END, RECONCILIATIOB, Sanhidiyawa and Sahajeevanayayi should be ABANDONED as IMPTACTICAL and UNWORKABLE.

    It will take 100-years or MORE of STABLE governance as a Sinhala Buddhist Nation under enforcing Sinhala Buddhist Principles and Culture for Sri Lanka to become a country of ONE indivisible Nation, with ONE In separable People sharing ONE Indomitable National Destiny.

    RECONCILIATION with UNREPENTANT Separatists giving into and enabling their Separatist Agenda will MAKE THAT GOAL IMPOSSIBLE, UNATTAINABLE!

    This was bound to happen as she won the second highest number of preference votes from the winning party in 2013 NPC election. Now it is 4 years too late to stop this.

    I agree with Ananda. Problem with Sinhalese are very narrow minded and most of them are selfish. That is why they voted for current ruling idiots. No one care what happen to the country.

  5. Lorenzo Says:

    The problem is Singhala people categorize TIGERS into GOOD tigers and BAD tigers depending on their POLITICAL PARTY USE.

    They are ALL tigers and have blood in their hands.

    The HORROR is we have reconciled with SOME of them!!!

    IF 13 amendment is SCRAPPED as we demanded NOTHING of this would have happened. But NO ONE wants to do it.
