May 15, Colombo: Minister Ranjith Madduma Bandara says that the objective of the organized attacks in several areas in the last few days was to destabilize the government.
At a media briefing held today at Temple Trees, the Minister said that the people who were behind these disruptive actions would be exposed in the future.
Expressing his views, the Minister noted that within the three weeks after the April 21 suicide attacks on churches and hotels, the administration of the country, the public sector and the development work of the country returned to normalcy. Within those three weeks, all the members of that terrorist organization responsible for the suicide attack were either arrested and or committed suicide.
What people needed and the government also wanted was to return the country to normalcy, to continue day-to-day work.
The government and especially the security forces did not allow any problem to arise in the country for 22 days after the terrorist attacks on April 21, the Minister pointed out.
"However, we saw on 13 May that some organized group was instigating some process attempting to ignite communal violence. After the investigations, we will reveal say who is behind these violence," Minister Ranjith Madduma Bandara said.
