JVP vows to defeat interim administration proposal

[TamilNet, Monday, 26 May 2003, 15:43 GMT]
The Sinhala hardliner Marxist Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) Monday declared that it would go all out to thwart the attempt by the United National Front (UNF) government to grant interim administration for the north east as demanded by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), sources in Colombo said.

Addressing a press conference Monday in Colombo JVP General Secretary Mr.Tilvin Silva said that the JVP would take all steps to defeat the unconstitutional moves taken by the UNF government to accede to the request of the LTTE.

Granting an interim administration for the northeast would amount to the division of the country and also would jeopardize the interests of the Sinhalese and Muslims in the provinces, Mr.Tilvin Silva said.

He expressed confidence that the President would take appropriate actions against the UNF government's move to appease the LTTE by granting its request for an interim administration for the northeast province, sources said.
