Fri, Jul 6, 2018, 10:13 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

July 06, Colombo: The United National Party (UNP) has appointed a committee to conduct an investigation into the controversial statement made by former State Minister of Child Affairs and UNP Jaffna District parliamentarian Vijayakala Maheswaran.

The four-member committee comprises ministers Thalatha Atukorala, Akila Viraj Kariyawasam, Kabir Hashim and Ranjith Madduma Bandara.

The committee plans to meet in the next few days and prepare a report, Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam has said.

The UNP Jaffna district parliamentarian resigned from her post of State Minister of Child Affairs yesterday over the controversial statement she made at a public rally in Jaffna recently.

Speaking an event at the Veerasingham Hall in Jaffna on 2nd July, Maheswaran has called for the reorganization of the outlawed terrorist group LTTE in order to curb the rising crime in the North.

"It is seen that there is a huge need of reorganization of the LTTE in the North and East," Maheswaran has said.

"Now we remember how we lived before May 18, 2009. In the present conditions our main intention is to bring back the LTTE If we want to live, if we want to walk freely, if we need our children to attend schools and return back," State Minister was quoted as saying at the event.
