CWC supports LTTE's interim council proposal

[TamilNet, Sunday, 25 May 2003, 17:04 GMT]
The Ceylon Workers Congress (CWC), a constituent of the United National Front (UNF) government, Sunday declared that it would wholeheartedly support the interim council proposal put forward by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), CWC said in a press release.

Presiding over the CWC administrative officers' meeting at Kandy Sunday morning the CWC leader and the Minister in the UNF government Mr.Arumugam Thondaman said an interim administration should be set up in the northeast as a prelude to find a political solution to the ethnic problem.

He said his grand father and the founder president of the CWC Mr.Soumiamoorthy Thondaman also reiterated this when he was a minister in the then government, the press release said.

The time has come to give life to the prophecy of the late leader Mr.Thondaman by setting up of the interim administration in the northeast. If an interim administration had been set up earlier as requested by his late father the country could have avoided destruction of lives and properties, Mr.Arumugam Thondaman said.

The CWC would extend its wholehearted support to the constructive steps the government is taking to take forward the peace process, said Mr. Thondaman, according to the press release issued by the CWC.
