[TamilNet, Friday, 06 October 2006, 08:25 GMT]
Ellavala Methanatha Thera, leader of Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU), the all monk Sinhala national party, speaking on the Emergency extension bill debate in the Sri Lanka Parliament Thursday, said the Sinhalese people made Mahinda Rajapakse the Sri Lanka's President only on the basis of 'Mahinda Chinthanaya' which categorically rejects a Tamil Homeland, a Tamil Nation and the Tamils' right to self-determination, and the peace talks should be held on this basis, parliamentary sources in Colombo said.
The JHU leader also demanded the Government of Sri Lanka (G0SL) to show evidence that the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam's (LTTE) has accepted the three conditions stipulated by (G0SL) as prerequisite to start the peace process.
Deviating from Mahinda Chinthanaya is traitorous, added the Buddhist monk parliamentarian.
There is no such thing as state terrorism in Sri Lanka, the government is only retaliating against the LTTE offensives, said the JHU leader according parliamentary sources.
