Sri Lanka Elections: Rudra Refused The “Secret Agreement” with Basil Rajapakse


Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam’s Prime Minister Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran Clarifies.

There is a serious allegation made by the members of the opposition alliance claimed that the secret agreement has signed between the government led by the President Rajapaksa and the Prime Minister of Provisional Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) while quoting a “secret email”.

“This e-mail was passed to the media by a group that has broken away from the LTTE Tamil diaspora. Following the defeat of the LTTE the Tamil Diaspora has got split up into about ten factions. Basil has written this mail to Rudrakumaran after the visit of Ramposa of South Africa to Sri Lanka (SL) who acted as the intermediary between the two parties,” reported by the local media while quoting the email.

“Basil had mentioned in his letter that if 10 % votes of the Tamils can be obstructed successfully and boycott staged like how it was done in 2005, the payments can be similarly made as before , and Rudrakumaran side can share that sum with father Emmanuel and Nedhiyawan,” the report added.

However, while talking to the editor of the Sri Lanka Guardian, Nilantha Ilangamuwa, Mr. Rudrakumaran refused the claim.

“I can assure you that there has been no such email exchange nor any agreement. It is nothing more than a defamatory lie,” Rudra told the Sri Lanka Guardian, short while ago.

“How low can Sinhala political establishment stoop on matters of importance such as choosing their President? We are not all surprised that they would be willing to exploit the Tamil national question and the long suffering Tamil people (about whom the two sides do not even have a stated position) as pawns in the dirty politics, vilification and mudslinging that is going on at present,” Rudra added
