PA urges UNF not to give into LTTE's demands

[TamilNet, Saturday, 14 June 2003, 00:05 GMT]
The main opposition Peoples Alliance (PA) which governed Sri Lanka from 1994 to 2001 demanded the United National Front (UNF) government to place the armed forces on red alert as the PA believed that the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) has reverted its position to Tamil homeland policy and its demand for an institution with more administrative and political powers is a step towards LTTE's goal for a separate state, Tamil Eelam, polical sources in Colombo said.

Addressing a press briefing at the office of the Leader of the Opposition Friday PA media spokesman Mr.Sarath Amunugama said their demand cannot be acceded to according to the constitution. This should not be allowed at any cost . No person in the country has the ability to act in contravention to the constitution of the country, he said

Mr.Sarath Amunugama further said that a dangerous trend is seen in the country at present as it seems that LTTE has abandoned its internal self-determination stand it took during the peace talks held between the LTTE and UNF government with the Norwegian facilitation, sources said.

Mr.Sarath Amunugama commending the decision of Prime Minister Mr.Ranil Wickremasinghe to place all the facts regarding the Japan aid donor's conference in parliament warned the government not to sign any agreement with the LTTE violating the constitution of the country, sources said.

Mr.Amunugama urged the UNF government to clarify how the aid given at the Japan donor's conference will be distributed at the provincial level and also to furnish information in parliament the conditions laid by the donor countries in providing loans and grants to the Sri Lankan government, sources said.
