TNA accuses 'PA playing dual role'

[TamilNet, Monday, 19 August 2002, 21:46 GMT]
The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Monday accused the main opposition People’s Alliance playing a dual role regarding the present peace process brokered by the Norwegians. "The People’s Alliance should come forward to tell its clear stand on the peace process now being taken forward by the United National Front government," said Mr.R.Sampanthan, leader of the Tamil National Alliance parliamentary group participating in the debate of no confidence motion against the Interior Minister John Amaratunge.

Mr.Sampanthan said, the People’s Alliance claims some time that it has started the peace process. On the other hand PA leaders are having discussions with the Sinhala hard-line party Janata Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) to form a united front to oppose the peace process.

" Where the PA stands? It is high time for the PA to tell its stand openly on the present peace process without playing dual role in the national question," Mr.Sampanthan stressed.

The three-day debate on the no-confidence motion moved by the main opposition Peoples Alliance against the Interior Minister John Amaratunge began Monday. Former PA minister Nimal Sripala de Silva moved the motion on behalf of the opposition.
