Mano Ganesan: Political solution after 'military victory' not acceptable to Tamils

[TamilNet, Saturday, 03 January 2009, 10:02 GMT]
Responding to the mood of "celebration" in South over the Sri Lankan military occupation of Ki'linochchi, Mano Ganesan, parliamentarian and the leader of Democratic Peoples Front (former WPPF), in a statement issued on Saturday said political solution after "total military victory" of the Sri Lankan state was not acceptable to the Tamils. He added: "If the north today is a military battle field, the government has a political battle field in the east. You have your own provincial council. It is not the solution. But it is part of the constitutional law. You are not even implementing what is law."

"Political solution to the national ethnic question after the total military victory is not acceptable to the Tamil people. This contention would not convince the international community too. This is the hard truth," Mano Ganesan said in his press statement.

Full text of the press statement follows:

We will too celebrate when the root causes to the ethnic issue and armed struggle are eradicated  - Mano Ganesan

We will too light crackers and celebrate when the root causes to the ethnic question and subsequently to the violent armed struggle are eradicated. The noble need of the hour is a honest political solution. But it looks that we are far away from nobility.

Whatever said and claimed the reality is that even the 13th amendment is not being implemented after 21 years since it became law. Political solution after the total military victory is not acceptable to the Tamils and the international community said Democratic Peoples Front Leader Mano Ganesan MP in a statement issued from his office. Ganesan said further in his statement,

We welcome sentiments expressed by the president in his address yesterday. It is excellent if his government is not treating this military victory as one won over the Tamils by the Sinhalese and south over the north. It is encouraging. But this sentiments have to be matched by performances. If the north today is a military battle field, the government has a political battle field in the east. You have your own provincial council. It is not the solution. But it is part of the constitutional law. You are not even implementing what is law, the 13th amendment. You are not listening to your own chief minister Chandrakanthan and senior minister Hisbollah. You have virtually closed down minister Tissa Vitarana’s APRC shop. The government claims that it is playing extremely better in the military battle field. We observe credible results. But sadly there is nothing observable in the political battle arena. What makes worse is that responsible partners of the government are blocking what is even done meagerly. While the president is arguing that this country belongs to Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslims, Burgers and Malays some powerful persons in the government are claiming mono ethno religious ownership to the country. Political solution to the national ethnic question after the total military victory is not acceptable to the Tamil people. This contention would not convince the international community too. This is the hard truth.
