Interviewed by Rajendra Alwis
Q: I understand that you have decided to retire from political activism in Canada on August 4th. Is there any particular reason or significance to choose this date for your retirement?
A: Yes indeed. That would be the 30th anniversary of the day when I decided to stand tall for my Motherland, Sri Lanka.
The“17th Invasion of Sri Lanka by India in the Island’s 2500 Year History.”
Harking back, one can conclude that 29th July 1987 was one of the darkest days in the history of Sri Lanka as it was the day on which India invaded Sri Lanka and forced the then Sri Lankan government to sign the infamous ‘Indo – Lanka Accord’.
