EPDP to support JVP-SLFP alliance from outside

[TamilNet, Monday, 02 February 2004, 15:35 GMT]
Eelam Peoples Democratic Party (EPDP), paramilitary group that works with the Sri Lankan armed forces in Sri Lanka’s northeast, said in a Memorandum that it agrees with the policies of the newly formed United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) and that it would extend its support to the UPFA, political sources in Colombo said.

"However, we need to break out of the propaganda being carried out by those who oppose the alliance that UPFA is achauvinistic party," the EPDP said in the memorandum.

EPDP's Secretary General, Douglas Devananda, requested the UPFA leadership to "work diligently and constructively to find a just and fair solution to the ethnic conflict," during a meeting with the UPFA leaders on 30 January 2004, memorandum added.

EPDP's memorandum further said that issues related to law and order situation in NorthEast, lack of safety and LTTE's refusal to accept democratic principles were discussed in detail during the meeting between EPDP and UPFA.
