[TamilNet, Thursday, 19 August 2004, 13:48 GMT]
The Sinhala nationalist cum Marxist Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), major constituent of the ruling minority United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) government has been actively engaged in a campaign in the south of the country against the Interim Self Governing Authority proposals of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) on the topic " Who is the real enemy of peace?" It launched its campaign on August 11

Addressing a meeting Wednesday at Maharagama Youth Centre Mr.Wimal Weerawanse JVP parliamentary group leader and propaganda secretary said that the powers of the proposed Interim Self Governing Authority (ISGA) of the Liberation Tigers would be more powerful than the executive presidency of the country.

He warned that if the UPFA government went ahead with the ISGA proposals as basis for future peace talks with the LTTE there would no other alternative for the JVP but to muster support of the people to sacrifice their lives for the motherland.

He said the ISGA if granted would create a separate state in the country. "We will not support future peace talks based on the ISGA proposal of the LTTE to get foreign aid," said Mr.Weerawanse.
