'Shed petty differences, unite to defeat LTTE'
President of the National Freedom Front (NFF) Parliamentarian Wimal
Weerawansa has in a press release, vehemently condemned the LTTE suicide
bomb attack on North Central Province Opposition Leader Major General
Janaka Perera and several others in Anuradhapura last Monday.
Major General Janaka Perera had led several battles against LTTE
terrorism in the North, the release said.
Excerpts from the release: Military leaders entry into politics is
something which the LTTE resents.
"The LTTE has repeatedly shown its barbarism by assassinating
political leaders and also the Tamil and Muslim leaders including SLMC
leader M. H. M. Ashroff. They have also killed Tamil academics.
We can face up to this fascist terrorism only through our united
efforts and for this we must get rid of all our petty differences in the
interest of the country. We urge all the political parties and
organisations to rally together to defeat this LTTE terrorism."
"We express our deep condolence on the death of Major General Janaka
Perera and all others in this tragedy," the press release stated.
