The credit for protecting Hill Country against terrorism lay with late Thondaman …. Gammanpila


Minister Udaya Gammanpila has observed that the credit for protecting the hill country from terrorism lay with late Arumugam and Saumiyamoorthy Thondaman.

Minister Gammanpila made this observation while speaking on the condolence motion in the House on former Ceylon Workers’ Congress Leader late Arumugam Thondaman.

Gammanpila said:

“Both late Arumugam Thondaman and late Savumiamoorthy Thondaman played vital roles in Sri Lankan politics where they did not allow separatist terrorism to spread in the Hill Country. Had it not been the case, defeating terrorism would have been more difficult.

The name ‘Thondaman’ is very important. The name does not just define a person, but a role. The role played by the Thondamans was crucial in Sri Lankan politics.

Terrorism was just as, or rather, much more horrible than the Coronavirus. It spread in North and East, and any attempt to spread it in the Hill Country was deflected first by late Savumiamoorthy Thondaman and then by his grandson, late Arumugam Thondaman. The credit lay with late Thondaman for protecting Hill Country against terrorism.”
