UNP opposes parliament adjournment

[TamilNet, Thursday, 02 February 2006, 19:50 GMT]
No bomb was recovered in the chamber of the parliament and the bomb scare was a ploy of the government to adjourn the parliament with a hidden agenda, said Mr.Tissa Attanayake, Deputy General Secretary of the main opposition United National Party (UNP) at a press briefing held Thursday evening.

The press conference was organized by the UNP to express its condemnation for the adjournment of the parliament, sources said.

Mr. Attanayake said the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), which attacked the parliament with grenade and bombs and threatened parliamentarians with death in 1987, 1988 and 1989 during the UNP regime is now saying that there is no security in the parliament for parliamentarians.

Mr.Tissa Attanayake said the JVP knows the truth behind the bomb scare created by the government. UNP severely condemns the adjournment of parliament, he added.
