Proposal merits no discussions - JVP

[TamilNet, Sunday, 02 November 2003, 16:52 GMT]
The Sinhala nationalist Marxist Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) said Sunday that the interim administrative structure proposal submitted by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) deserves no discussions with any one and should be thrown into waste paper basket. The JVP pointed out that the proposal contained all powers required for a separate state in the island, media sources in Colombo said.

Addressing a press briefing in Colombo JVP Secretary General Mr.Tilvin Silva said the interim self-governing authority (ISGA)proposed by the LTTE would pave the way for a separate state. The LTTE proposals formed the foundation for Tamil Eelam in the country.

LTTE has used its powers to get what it wanted and it seemed the government was again ready to accede to LTTE requests, he said.

Mr.Tilvin Silva added that the LTTE proposals have gone beyond the devolution process in India and the government has succumbed to the pressure of the LTTE.

JVP parliamentary group leader Mr.Wimal Weerawanse said he hoped to launch a program jointly with other political parties which oppose LTTE interim administrative structure proposals.

Several measures would be taken to defeat the LTTE proposals to come into effect, he added.
