Rajapaksa’s son: Is Sirisena supporting ‘a separate Eelam state?’

Namal Rajapaksa has challenged the Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena to confirm whether he officially supports ‘a separate Eelam state’.

In a tweet made in response to the playing of LTTE songs at an SLFP election campaign held in Jaffna today, the former Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s son said:

‘Tamil Eelam songs are being played at the function of a SLFP candidate in #Jaffna. Does this mean that @MaithripalaS and the SLFP officially support a separate Eelam state?’
