Prime Minister’s claptrap

Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe is on record affirming that the UNF government has faced the challenge of bringing the LTTE into the democratic fold. This is certainly shameless chicanery bordering on absolute humbug on the part of the Premier because facts completely and clearly refute his claim.

Mr. Wickremesinghe has repeatedly failed in his attempts to get the LTTE to accept any of the government’s proposals made towards achieving peace.

The MoU has already proved a debacle making further rapprochement between the two parties impossible. SLMM is openly abusing its powers in favour of the LTTE to the detriment of the established state. Mr. Wickremesinghe stays unmoved while the LTTE is steadfastly fortifying its terror empire in the north and east.
