TULF President appeals for full co-operation from CBK

TULF President V. Anandasangaree has written to President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga appealing to her to forget the past and extend her full co-operation to the peace process and make her Presidentship a golden era in the history of Sri Lanka.

He has also strongly urged her not to press for the withdrawal of the Ceasefire Monitoring Committee "that receives blame from all sides."

In an emotionally charged letter which traced all watershed events in the country, Anandasangaree says that initiatives taken by successive governments in the past did not bear fruit due to the co-operation not forthcoming by the Opposition to the peace process.

"Let it not be repeated this time too" the letter to the President stated.

"You are aware Your Excellency that the proposal for an interim administration is not a new story. It was agreed to by President J. R. Jayewardene, and the Prime Minister of India Shri Rajeev Gandhi long ago. It was also agreed to give more representation to the LTTE in the Interim Council."

"I hope you will be magnanimous enough to agree to this proposal in the interest of achieving peace and also will not at this stage try to de-merge the merged North-East Provincial Council that has functioned for about 15 years. Allowing it intact will help to promote unity and harmony among the three communities living not only in the North-East but also in other areas as well."

"What our people want today is peace - permanent peace and normalcy to return. They must get back to their homes and start normal life, the letter said."
