රට බෙදන්න ආවොත්, ඔලුව කඳ වෙන් කරනවා -හමුදාපති (No one can step outside the boundaries of democracy)

උතුරේ පලාත් සභා ඡන්ද ප්‍රතිඵලයෙන් කුල්මත් වී බෙදුම්වාදය ට යමෙක් ඉදිරිපත් වේ නම් ඒ සම්බන්ධයෙන් දැඩි පියවර ගන්නා බව හමුදාපති ලුතිනන් ජෙනරාල් දයා රත්නායක මහතා ප්‍රකාශ කර සිටියේය.

උතුරේ සංචාරයක නිරත හමුදාපතිවරයා මේ බව කියා සිටියේ වව්නියාවේ දී හමුදා සෙබළුන් අමතමිනි.

මේ දින වල ඡන්ද ප්‍රතිඵලයෙන් කුල්මත් වූ කණ්ඩායමක් ඒ අයට අවශ්‍ය වෙනම රාජ්‍යයක් ලැබුණු බව සිතා අනුවණ ආකාරයෙන් කටයුතු කිරීමට සැර සෙමින් හමුදාව පෙලඹවීමට එන්නේ නම්, ඔවුන්ට දැඩි දඬුවම් දීමට සිදු වනු ඇති බව ද හමුදාපතිවරයා කියා සිටියේය.

ප්‍රජාතන්ත්‍රවාදය තුළ සිටිනා තුරු සතුටින් සිටිය හැකි බව ද ප්‍රකාශ කළ හමුදාපති දයා රත්නායක මහතා , '' රට බෙදන්න ගියොත් රට නො වෙයි බෙදෙන්නේ ඒ අයගේ ඔලුව කඳ වෙන් වෙන්න පුළුවන්'' යනුවෙන් ද අනතුරු ඇඟවීමක් කළේය.

විනය විරෝධී වැඩ කරන හමුදා සෙබළුන්ට එරෙහිව තරාතිරම නො තකා දැඩි පියවර ගන්නා බව හමුදාපතිවරයා මෙහි දී කියා සිටියේ රතුපස්වල සිදු වූ හමුදා ප්‍රහාරය ද සිහිපත් කරමිනි.

Army Commander tells Wanni troops

Beware separatists: what happened to prabha?

No one can step outside the boundaries of democracy

Army Commander Lt. Gen. Daya Ratnayake said there will be no room for separatism on Sri Lankan soil in the future, and those who advocate separatism will be dealt with severely.

"No one will be allowed to step outside the boundaries of democracy to promote extremism and separatism," the Army Commander stated.

The Commander expressed these views during the second leg of his visit to the North which commenced from Vavuniya Tuesday (15) morning, when he arrived at the Security Force Headquarters, Wanni, to be received by Major General Boniface Perera, Commander.

"The world saw how we responded to those who attempted to do things this way in the past,'' he said while adding that people know what happened to Prabhakaran when he tried to separate the country.

Speaking at an event in Wanni, during his first visit to the area following his appointment, he also stated that those who are aware of what has happened in the past will not attempt to go back to those ways. At the parade square, the Commander was greeted to a Guard Turn-out and a Guard of Honour as part of military formalities before he was ushered to the main auditorium at the SFHQ-W where he spoke to a cross section of Wanni troops assembled there for the first time after assuming duties as the 20th Army Commander.

On Monday (14) the Commander was in Jaffna meeting all the troops serving the Security Force Headquarters-Jaffna before he flew to Vavuniya yesterday morning.

Later on, Major General Perera, Wanni Commander presented a briefing to the visiting Army Chief on the SFHQ-W roles and tasks as well as other nation-building projects in place during a separate meeting at the Conference Hall, attended by all ground commanders under the SFHQ-W.

A symbolic tree-planting and exchange of mementos took place before the conclusion of the visit to the SFHQ-W premises.

Later on, the Commander flew to the 54 Division Headquarters in Mannar where he addressed the troops. The day's next visit was to the 25 Sri Lanka Light Infantry Headquarters in Pompemadu,Vavuniya. The visiting Commander, continuing his day's itinerary visited the 561 Brigade Headquarters in Kanagarayankulam.
