JVP will oppose any power devolution to North, East provinces

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 10 March 2010, 09:28 GMT]
The Sinhala Marxist party Jantha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) former parliamentarian, Anura Kumara Dissanayake said that JVP will oppose if a new political constitution devolving powers to the Northern and Eastern provinces is to be created, in a press briefing held in Colombo Tuesday. “Minister G. L. Peiris recently said that the government intends implementing its newly drafted political constitution following the parliamentary elections and I call upon the government to make public this new political constitution,” Anura Kumar Dissanayake said adding that JVP will never permit the country to be divided.

Anura Kumara further said that Sri Lanka has been forced into creating this new political constitution due to pressure from the Government of India and that India’s Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao had come to Sri Lanka recently to ensure the creation of the new political constitution.

It had been decided to remove the Army High Security Zones (HSZ) in the North during the talks between Ranil Wickremasinghe’s government and Liberation Tigers, and G. L. Peiris had ordered the then Army Commander Sarath Fonseka to do so, Anura Kumara said.

But Sarath Fonseka had rejected the order and that is why G. L. Pieris is so opposed to Sarath Fonseka, he added.

He further said that Sarath Fonseka had been arrested on false accusations and that the Western powers are forcing the government to release him.

JVP is contesting the forthcoming parliamentary elections in Democratic National Alliance (DNA) headed by Sarath Fonseka.
