Colombo, Jun 28: The Sri Lankan army's spokesman, Brigadier Udaya Nanayakkara said that the government and the defence brass is determined not to allow the rebel Tamil Tigers to regroup.
Brigadier Nanayakkara was quoted by the Sri FM radio station that the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) would not be left any room by the authorities to regroup in order to revert to their campaign for a separate state.
"People like KP (Kumaran Pathmanathan) can make statements but we will not be bothered by them," Brigadier Nanayakkara said.
KP, the arms procurer for the rebels has claimed leadership of the organization with another claiming to be the international intelligence wing member of the group contradicting KP.
President Mahinda Rajapakse's government has launched a development drive in the north since the rebel defeat while pledging to implement political power sharing with the Tamil dominated areas.
