Com­man­der of the Civil De­fence Force in Mul­laitivu, Kilinochchi and Jaffna, Colonel Rath­napriya Bandu worked closely with the peo­ple as well as for­mer LTTE cadres who were un­der­go­ing re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion. It was not only the peo­ple of the area that would feel his loss but the re­ha­bil­i­tated LTTE cadres as well. They were un­able to con­trol their emo­tions as he was leav­ing the Vish­va­madu area on trans­fer. MP Weer­awansa high­lighted that the ex­am­ple shown by Colonel Rath­napriya Bandu is a sign of rec­on­cil­i­a­tion and peace tak­ing place in the coun­try. “I re­quest you to re­in­state Colonel Rath­napriya Bandu,” Weer­awansa said in his let­ter to Pres­i­dent Sirisena.
