[TamilNet, Thursday, 22 January 2004, 17:02 GMT]
Sri Lanka's Prime Minister Mr.Ranil Wickremasinghe Thursday challenged the newly formed United Peoples' Freedom Alliance to place its secret pact signed by the SLFP and JVP before the people, when speaking at the United National Front parliamentary group meeting to discuss the new political formation, political sources said.

The Memorandum of Understanding released after signing the new agreement by the SLFP and JVP attacks the ruling UNF government and does not divulge any political agreements the two parties have reached in their ten months' negotiations, Mr.Wickremasinghe said.

The new political alliance is to work according to the secret pact both parties have signed and not according to the MoU released on Tuesday.

The MoU has been released to hoodwink the masses and for attacking the ruling UNF government, the UNP said in a statement released Thursday.
