Civilian, Military factions of Government of Sri Lanka Fall Out

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."
