Sri Lanka government withdrew Sunday the customary security arrangements to Sarath Fonseka, the common opposition presidential candidate and the opposition political leaders who are presently in Jaffna to campaign for Sarath Fonseka, sources in Jaffna said. Jaffna Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Commander who was expected to receive Sarath Fonseka who had been the Chief of Sri Lanka Armed Forces did not turn up at Palaali airport while SLA high officials in Palaali military base kept themselves busy in their offices, the sources added. The Chief priest of Nagavikarai Buddhist temple in Jaffna was the only prominent personage present at the airport to receive Sarath Fonseka when he arrived with the opposition parliamentarians Saturday.

The government withdrew the customary security arrangements provided by SLA and police to important persons visiting Jaffna to Sarath Fonseka and the political leaders from South.

Ranil Wickremasinghe, the leader of the opposition and United National Party, parliamentarians JVP Somawanse Amarasinghe, Mano Ganeshan, SLMC Hakkim, Dr. Jayalath Jayawardne and several other political personages from the South had accompanied Sarath Fonseka.
