President, PM should work jointly for peace - Jaffna Bishop

[TamilNet, Thursday, 01 January 2004, 14:26 GMT]
The Bishop of Jaffna Rt Rev.Thomas Saundranayagam Thursday in a New Year message appealed to Sri Lanka's President and the Prime Minister to jointly work together for the dawn of permanent peace in the country in the New Year adopting a policy of give and take, said officials of Jaffna diocese.

"Tamils should pray the Almighty for permanent peace. True peace could be achieved in the island by establishing a just society. Compassion and love are needed to achieve this goal," said Rt Rev.Thomas Saundranayagam.

"The current political instability in the south continues without a compromise in sight. Peace loving people are in dark. What would happen next? This is the question now peace loving people across the country are asking. The current tension and political instability prevailing in the country have created fear in the minds of the people whether another war is in the offing," said the Jaffna Bishop in his New Year message.
