'State your stand', Tamil MP tells President, JVP, UNP

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 30 November 2004, 13:02 GMT]
''Members of the ruling party and media in the South are treating the LTTE leader's speech lightly. He says little but has achieved much. He does what he says. Hence accept his call and resume the peace talks. State your stand on the Tamil question unequivocally. If you do, then we can decide the path we have to take,'' said Mr.Selvarajah Gajendran, Tamil National Alliance MP for Jaffna speaking on the Sri Lankan government budget in Parliament Tuesday.

Speaking further the MP said: ''The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna, United National Party and President Kumaratunga have not stated their stand on the Tamil people's right to self determination, the Tamil homeland and Tamils' status as a distinct nationality.

"Respond to the LTTE leader's call if you have courage and political honesty,'' Mr. Gajendran said.
