SL government stages hidden agenda in Jaffna peninsula – Jaffna MP

[TamilNet, Monday, 10 May 2010, 17:23 GMT]
Suresh Premachandran, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Jaffna district parliamentarian, accused Sri Lanka Government for purposely encouraging crimes in Jaffna peninsula such as abduction and killing for ransom, robbery, sexual abuse of lonely women so that it could continue to hold the peninsula in its authority, in a press meet held Monday at his Jaffna office. He further blamed the government for having abandoned the resettled civilians in Mullaiththeevu district who had been uprooted and detained during the war on Vanni.

Suresh Premachandran told the press that the government has no intention to withdraw its armed forces from Jaffna peninsula or to lift the various restrictions imposed on the people as it wants to hold on to the absolute power it enjoys in the place of its occupation.

He said that the government, with the help of Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Intelligence Wing and its soldiers, is carrying out criminal activities so as to create a situation where it can justify the presence of its armed forces in Jaffna peninsula to maintain law and order to the international countries and other people.

Commenting on the resettlement in Vanni, Suresh Premachadran accused the government for have taken the uprooted civilians to Mullaiththeevu for resettlement without any preparation and abandoned them there without offering assistance.

The resettled civilians have to manage on their own living under trees and tin sheets donated by India and other international countries, he said.

Even the school children have study under trees and temporary structures with tin sheets for roofs, he added.
