He said not a single incident was reported. Ranil Wickramasinghe who is in Colombo is asking to disarm Pillaiyan. The Minister said however, they are not carrying weapons. He queried as to why they are not asking to disarm Prabhakaran and why they did not utter this for the past 25 years.
The factory was shut down last year. Two production machines have been repaired. The production resumed under the Eastern Reawakening programme.
