The Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) said yesterday that the UNP`s presidential candidate Ranil Wickremesinghe was a pawn of the LTTE and other racist parties such as CWC and SLMC. He is acting true to their dream of separatism.
The conditions laid down by the CWC and the SLMC when they joined the UNP presidential candidate opposition leader Ranil Wickremesinghe would lead to separate Muslim and Tamil districts. The UNP leader Wickremesinghe had agreed.
`We still didn`t know what are the LTTE`s conditions were, Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe, spokesman of the JHU told `The Island` yesterday.
He said that opposition leader Ranil Wickremesinghe`s conditions were included to his manifesto `Janatha Nyaya Pathraya`. But, Premier Mahinda Rajapakse`s manifesto `Mahinda Chinthana` can defeat all retrograde forces and stands for the rights of all religions.
`CWC leader Arumugam Thondaman made 19 conditions to the UNP leader. Thondaman wants separate Tamil GS divisions and Divisional Secretary Divisions in the Kandy, Badulla and Nuwara Eliya districts. They want to reserve the Sri Pada College of Education only for Tamil students. The conditions also call for 1000 Tamils in the Sri Lankan forces and the police,` Warnasinghe said.
