Apparently the General and the President are squabbling. The General:
"Your excellency?s government has yet to win the peace in spite of the fact that the army under my leadership won the war," he said.
"There is no clear policy to win the hearts and minds of the Tamil people, which will surely ruin the victory attained, paving the way for yet another uprising in the future."
Even as the end of the war has brought a new flood of refugees in the north in recent days, the United Nations, the International Red Cross and other groups have said that the military’s restrictions have curtailed their activities and are endangering the lives of a refugee population now estimated at 280,000.
