IGP and Defence Secretary were made scapegoats

The Inspector General of Police and Defence Secretary were made scapegoats for the issue concerning the lapse in security measures of the country, says Parliamentarian Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka.

The parliamentarian said the chief prelates had emphasized that time has come to put aside political agendas in order to give priority to the country.

Officials, including the President, are responsible for failing to prevent the attacks, and excuses are unnecessary at a time like this, he said. “A large number of people were killed and many others became disabled.”

Trying to wash the hands of the incident and dismissing the officials from their respective posts when horror has taken over the country is not a solution, he commented.
