Tamils, LTTE, MPs lose patience on peace process -Sampanthan

[TamilNet, Monday, 18 October 2004, 05:08 GMT]
"Tamils, Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and we (parliamentarians) have started losing patience on the current peace efforts with the Norwegian facilitation because of the inability of the Government of Sri Lanka in coming to terms on the basis of resuming peace talks with the LTTE due to internal rift among its constituents," said Mr.R.Sampanthan, Tamil National Alliance parliamentary group leader addressing a series of awareness meetings held in several villages north of Trincomalee district Sunday from morning till midnight.

Seventeen TNA parliamentarians are currently visiting Trincomalee on a three-day district level political awareness campaign. First day they held a discussion with Trincomalee town Muslim leaders and later in the day they addressed a public a\rally at Trincomalee Town Hall.

Sunday they divided into two groups and visited villages from Pulmoddai to Salli in the north coastal areas in the Trincomalee district where majority of the inhabitants depend on fisheries for their survival.

R.Sampanthan added," There is a limit for patience for hundreds of thousands of internally displaced families currently languishing in refugee camps and welfare centres for years even after the ceasefire agreement came into operation. Therefore the government cannot continue its current dragging approach to recommence peace talks with the LTTE anymore. It (GOSL) should come to terms with its' partners in the regime immediately and to show its seriousness in recommencing the peace talks. The country as a whole would face serious consequence if the GOSL failed to adopt a firm stand on the resumption of peace talks."

Mr.S.Elilan, Trincomalee district political head of the LTTE also participated in the meetings with TNA parliamentarians.

Vanni district parliamentarian representative Mullaitivu district Mr.S.Kanagaretnam said his group went up to Kokilai lagoon, which divides the districts of Trincomalee and Mullaitivu. He saw hundreds of migrant fishermen from the south have been engaged in fishing.

One group visited Thiriyai, a resettled Tamil traditional village. Later both groups visited Kumburupiddy, Nilaveli, Sambaltivu and Salli.
