Jaffna leaflet warns of war

[TamilNet, Sunday, 11 January 2004, 13:55 GMT]
"War would be inevitable if Sri Lankan leaders insidiously reject the LTTE's Interim Self Governing Authority(ISGA) proposal and if they consider this peace period as a time to cheat," warned a leaflet issued in Jaffna Sunday by an organisation called Tamil National Awareness Movement.

"The Sri Lankan government and President are both responsible for the current impasse in the peace process. The Sri Lankan President took over the ministry of defence because she could not face up to the LTTE's ISGA proposal.

"She expressed opinion about the ISGA proposal only after Indian officials said what they thought about it. Even then she was only repeating the opinion of Indian officials. The Sri Lankan (Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe's) government too did not express its opinion on the LTTE's ISGA proposal. Prof. G. L Pieris said there is big gap between the Tigers' position and that of his government. But his government did not state its position on the ISGA proposal.

"The LTTE abided by, and upheld, the ceasefire even after Sri Lankan armed forces killed 25 Tigers, even after the LTTE was kept out of the Washington conference, even after Colombo avoided responding to the ISGA proposal," the leaflet charged.

The Tamil National Awareness Movement (Thamil Thesiya Vilippunarvu Kalaham) gave its address as Thamil Eelam.
