Sri Lankan government could defeat the separatist LTTE few years back. I heard that the war in Sri Lanka lasted more than thirty years and it killed thousands of innocent people and both side armies. It is also reported that it was this Tamil terrorist group who first introduced suicide bombers. They also used the women suicide bombers and at times in disguise of pregnant ladies. The government under the leadership of President Mahinda Rajapaksha and Army commander Sarath Fonseka could defeat Liberation of Tamil Tigers of Ealam (LTTE) by killing its leader Prabhakaran. Then they fully captured land which were under the control of LTTE for years. Then they could surrender LTTE international leader Kumaran Pathmanatha who is popular as K.P. These were the few facts I could learn from Internet and do not want to hear that again. What I want to know is what exactly lead to the success of this fight after 30 years. Please give me an comprehensive answer as I am studying word politics at University and I may utilize it for my studies if I get a good answer. How was the Government in Sri lanka able to finally defeat the Tamil Tigers?
Despite the court order to withhold the Education ministry’s leadership training program for the freshers of Sri Lankan universities, Sri Lanka government carried out their army training program as planned. Sri Lankan students and their teachers and parents were apprehensive about this program. Now this leadership program is underway and I saw images of students taking lessons from Army officers. Issuing a media release, Dr. Ranjith Devasiri, the president of Federation of University Teachers Association (FUTA) said that this leadership training program is suspicious. This decision to give a leadership training to freshers is a brain child of Minister S.B.Disanayaka. I wonder whether he has consulted university professors regarding this. According to FUTA , there has been no formal planning for this. As student are attending this training these days, i would like to know what is happening during this training. It is always better to listen to the people who are really going through this experience. So If there is any student who attended this training or their parents please share your experience with us.
