[TamilNet, Tuesday, 03 September 2002, 09:48 GMT]
A deputation of the National Bhikku Front (Jathika Maha Sangha Sammelanaya) Monday night requested President Chandrika Kumaratunge to take control of the Defence Ministry and to use her executive powers to prevent the de-proscription of the LTTE and setting up of an interim administration in the Northeast Province.

The deputation met the President at her office at the end of the meeting held at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH) Monday evening.

The deputation told the President to come forward to save the country from being divided through peace talks between the UNF government and the LTTE in the name of finding a peaceful solution to the conflict.

President Chandrika Kumaratunge replied that she is totally against the de-proscription of the LTTE and the setting up of an interim administration in the Northeast Province.
