JVP demands SL government to declare war against the Tigers

[TamilNet, Monday, 08 January 2007, 19:41 GMT]
The Sinhala nationalist Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) Sunday demanded the Government of Sri Lanka led by President Mahinda Rajapakse to declare full scale war on the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) openly after proscribing it. The JVP politburo made the demand in a statement issued Sunday.

The JVP blamed the LTTE for targeting Sinhala civilians in the South.

Two bomb explosions that took place separately, one at Nittambuwa and the other at Godagama in the south during the weekend killing sixteen passengers, have proved the "intention of the LTTE" to create a backlash in the south." the JVP said.

Meanwhile, according to a survey conducted by Social Indicator in the South, excluding North and East, about sixty percent of Sinhalese and 92 percent of Muslim and 97 percent of plantation community, have expressed that a political solution should be found to the ethnic conflict through negotiations.
