[TamilNet, Tuesday, 13 March 2007, 20:27 GMT]
The Sinhala nationalist Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) said that its
struggle will continue until the Sri Lanka government annuls the ceasefire agreement (CFA) it
signed with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). "We successfully
obtained a ruling on the demerger of NorthEast province after nineteen years.
We will also succeed in cancelling the ceasefire agreement
very soon,"Wimal Weerawanse, parliamentary group leader of the JVP addressing a meeting last Sunday in Matara in the southern province said.
Mr.Wimal Weerawanse added that his party is criticizing the United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) government only for its unpatriotic policies, whereas
the United National Party (UNP) criticizes the Government itself.
"Our party has asked the President to rule the country respecting the human
rights of people. But he has taken a side with the leftist parties in solving the ethnic conflict. Foreign envoys are coming to our country to inquire into reported human rights violations. But these foreign forces are keen in only in bringing our natural resources under their
control," Weerawanse said.
