Public better be on alert warns Fonseka

Sri Lanka's former army commander, and current UNP MP, Sarath Fonseka warned the public to be on alert, following the Easter Sunday suicide bombings. 

Stating that no one had heeded to the warnings he had previously made about national security, Fonseka told an event in Kelaniya that the pubic "should be on alert and not be deceived by the politicians."

"The Defence Secretary, testifying before the Special Parliament Select Committee, had said terrorism is 99 percent eradicated from the country. However, terrorism cannot be wiped out in that manner even if persons who do not have a proper understanding on terrorism make such comments," he was further quoted by Adaderana as saying.
