[TamilNet, Wednesday, 08 June 2005, 07:46 GMT]
Mounting a scathing attack on President Chandrika Kumaratunga and her family, Mr.Somawanse Amarasinghe, leader of the marxist extreme Sinhala nationalist Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), the main political ally of ruling United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) Government, warned on Tuesday that if Kumarathunga went ahead and signed the proposed joint-mechanism with the LTTE, she would be the "last of the Bandaranaikes".

"An internal war is going on within the UPFA. We will never allow the so-called mechanism. Some people are thinking of expelling us. We advise Chandrika Kumaratunga not to be the last of the Bandaranaikes", the Daily Mirror newspaper reported on Wednesday quoting leader of the JVP, Somawansa Amarasinghe as saying at a public speech at Warakapola on Tuesday.

Somawanse has said at the meeting that the proposed joint-mechanism, if signed, would be a political tsunami for the Kumaratunga government.

Kumarantunga, in her speech at the recently held donor conference in Kandy, said that she was facing a life threat from within. Kumaratunga, in her recent public speeches, has accused the JVP for the killings of her father and former Prime Minister S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike and her husband Viyaya Kumaratunga.

Tourism Minister and the brother of the President, Mr. Anura Bandaranaike, who is considered to be one of the JVP moles in the SLFP camp along with Foreign Minister Mr. Lakshman Kadirgamar and Aviation Minister Mr. Mangala Samaraweera, is yet to respond to the thundering attack by the JVP leader on President Kumaratunga and the Bandaranaike family.

JVP leader Somawanse, the sole surviving member of the 1980s politburo of the JVP, who was in a long exile in London since late 80s fearing for arrest by the UNP Government, returned to the country in November 2001, as President Chandrika Kumaratunga developed close links with the JVP to whip up Sinhala opposition to the CFA agreement and the peace negotiations between the UNF and the LTTE.
