Support Government Against South India Pressure – UNP Deputy Secretary

Colombo, 18 October, ( The Deputy General Secretary of the UNP has urged all political forces in Sri Lanka to support the government against South Indian pressure aimed at halting military offensives in the north to defeat LTTE terrorism.

South Indian politicians are trying to prevent military from marching to Kilinochchi in days, Lakshman Seneviratne has told Dinamina, and has called for unity against the attempt, by setting aside racial, religious and political differences.

He has given an interview to the state-owned newspaper during a private visit to Australia.

It is unfair that South India, which is having its own issues to deal with, is interfering in Sri Lanka's affairs, the UNP MP has said.

As the LTTE had deceived successive Sri Lankan governments and had killed even former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, it can never be trusted.

The only way to save innocent Tamil people is through the liberation of Kilinochchi, Mr. Seneviratne has said.

Noting that his own party had lost many of its activists to LTTE suicide bomb attacks, he has added that all Sri Lankans should unite and support the war to gain Kilinochchi.
