UPFA Parliamentarian Dullas Alahapperuma today charged that thousands of disabled war heroes are suffering in the country and that none of the current Cabinet Ministers remembered to even offer an almsgiving on their behalf.
However, they very eagerly gave the opportunity for the people in the North to remember their dead relatives, he said, speaking at a press conference held at the Abhayaramaya Temple, Narahenpita.
The former minister also condemned the alleged suppression of university students. He charged that politicians who used violence to suppress university students in the past are in the incumbent government.
Alahapperuma stated that he strongly objects to the manner in which university students engaged in the freedom struggle were attacked during a recent protest.
He stated that they also oppose the “Indianisation” of Trincomalee being carried out by the government.
