Sampanthan claims he urged LTTE leader to enter politics

Tamil National Alliance (TNA) leader R Sampanthan says he urged LTTE leader Vellupillai Prabakaran to enter politics.

Sampanthan told a gathering in Kilonochchi that he had several meetings and discussions with Prabakaran before the war ended in 2009 and had urged him to convert his fighting skills to politics.

He said that the LTTE leader, who was killed in 2009, had in the year 2000 claimed that the then Government agreed to peace talks since the LTTE was a powerful military force.

Sampanthan said he agreed with the views of the LTTE leader and urged his to use that same force in politics.
