Only UNP can solve the problems of the Tamils – Dr. Jayalath Jayawardne

[TamilNet, Thursday, 06 August 2009, 18:27 GMT]
“The present government will never offer a solution for the problems of the Tamils; only the United National Party (UNP) will solve their problems,” Dr. Jayalath Jayawardene, the Deputy Secretary of UNP, said in a press conference held Thursday in Delka hotel in Jaffna. “The government does not allow the opposition MPs to see the Vanni IDPs in the camps when it permits people to visit even prisoners in jails; this is gross injustice of the government which has betrayed the Tamils,” he further said.

“This government which told the international countries not to interfere into the affairs of it now goes around the world appealing for money to resettle the Vanni IDPs and to find livelihood for them; this has raises suspicions,” Jayalath Jayawardne said.

“This government is not sincere to any people in this country; the reality is that it does injustice to the Tamils,” he said.

“The President who spoke of a solution to the problems of the Tamils earlier now says he will do it after the Presidential election; it is doubtful whether the presidential election would take place even after two years,” he added.

“In the election wall posters in Jaffna Mahinda Rajapakse claims that he is a relative of the Tamils shedding crocodile tears; there aren’t even scissors available in the IDP camps to severe the umbilical cords of children delivered in the camps and how can he be a relative of the Tamils when this is the reality?” Jayalath Jayawardne asked.

“The government says Sri Lanka is a democratic country; how could it engage in revelry when 300,000 innocent Tamils are suffering in the camps?” he further questioned.
