Direct talks with Pirapaharan, a Day Dream- TNA MP

[TamilNet, Sunday, 04 September 2005, 18:58 GMT]
"Mr.Mahinda Rajapakse is `day dreaming' when he says he will speak directly to the LTTE supremo to settle the ethnic issue," said Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Parliamentarian Joseph Pararajasingham criticizing the nonchalant attitude of Mr Rajapakse at the beginning of his campaign for Sri Lanka's Presidency.

"Mr Rajapakse should understand that the people of the NorthEast cannot be taken for a ride anymore. Tamil people are neither concerned nor impressed by the political circus in the South.

"The Government of Mr Rajapakse failed to implement even the very basic Joint Mechanism for facilitating tsunami aid reaching the people of NorthEast.

"Since Mr Rajapakse's Government captured power by aligning with the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), extreme Sinhala Nationalist marxist party, the peace process hit a road block. Making pronouncements now on having talks with the LTTE is truely hilarious, unbecoming of a serious candidate seeking Sri Lanka's Presidency," Pararajasingham said.

Mr Pararajasingham also added that Mr Rajapakse will lose even the little amount of support he has in the NorthEast if he allied with the JVP in his campaign.

When Premier Rajapakse and a delegation of JVP parliamentarians visited Jaffna on 30 December to see the devastation, irate refugees jeered the group protesting the group's negative attitude towards the peace process.
