Sreedharan, M.P.

Selvarasa Gajendran, a member of the Tamil National People’s Front (TNPF) who referred to the liberation movement leader Velupillai Prabhakaran as the national leader in the Sri Lankan parliament, has attracted widespread attention.

His remarks during the parliamentary session were strongly opposed by the Sinhala-majority parliamentarians representing the ruling party and the ruling party’s Muslim parliamentarians.

What happened?

In the Sri Lankan parliament, TNA parliamentarian S. Sreedharan questioned whether anyone in the Northern Province had been harmed by drug abuse before the end of the country’s military war with the liberation in 2009.

Before the end of the war, was there cannabis use in the Northern and Eastern Provinces? Sreedharan also questioned how drug use had increased in the northern and eastern provinces after the end of the war, when there was a large concentration of police, army, navy and air force.
