[TamilNet, Monday, 09 April 2007, 10:40 GMT]
Mr.Tissa Attanayake, parliamentarian and UNP general secretary addressing a meeting held in Colombo New Town Hall Saturday evening, asked the Sri Lanka government why it has not nullified the Ceasefire Agreement (CFA) if the Government thinks CFA offers no benefit. UNP has been conducting a series of awareness meetings to brief the people about the current political and security situations in Sri Lanka.
Mr.Attanayake pointed out the CFA, which was signed by the then UNP Prime Minister with the LTTE in the year 2002 is in force for most of the period under the United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) government.
The UPFA government came to power in 2004 by telling lies to the people. The government says that about ninety percent of the LTTE military might have been destroyed. But the LTTE has proved again its might with the air strike on the Katunayake military air base, Mr.Attanayake said.
Mr.Attanayake addressed a meeting at Anamaduwa in Puttalam district Sunday evening.
