Government strongly condemns Karuna’s statement – Minister Prasanna

Industrial Exports, Investments Promotion, Tourism and Aviation Minister Prasanna Ranatunga said that the government strongly condemns the Karuna Amman’s statement and it is regrettable that the son of a leader who had a history of supplying arms to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) was shedding crocodile tears over it.

The Minister was responding to a question by journalists after attending a meeting at the Sun Castle reception hall in Wattala last Saturday.

Minister Ranatunga said Karuna said that he accepted the weapons that Premadasa gave to the LTTE. “They do not talk about providing cement for bunkers, weapons and money. We say both are wrong. Karuna is not a Sri Lanka Podu Jana Peramuna (SLPP) member. He contests from another party. He was the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) Vice President not of the SLPP,” the Minister said.

The Minister further said the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is taking action over Karuna’s statement.

Minister Ranatunga said he has information about former President Maithripala's corruption.

“Maithri has avenged us and the Rajapaksas by making allegations against us. He is not smart as he shows,” Minister Ranatunga said.
