Former Army Commander and Democratic Party Leader Sarath Fonseka, answering a question during an interview in the ITN last evening on his worst enemies said that MR was governing the country using ways and means that would have been followed by a terrorist.
“I would say Prabhakaran is the worst enemy – he was a ruthless terrorist that targeted and killed thousands of innocent civilians. He was a dangerous enemy but it was in the battlefield. . . But after his death, I realised that there was another individual who was destroying the country and meant to harm the people. . .” he said in his response, referring to MR.
He said that MR was going to do more damage to the country than Prabhakaran and that is why de made a decision to enter politics and challenge MR.
“This enemy of mine tried to kill me in various ways – in fact the whole of Rajapaksa family was out to get me. . . MR was acting like a terrorist, actually worse than a terrorist,” he told the interviewer.
