    Forget what RW said. I was kinda of surprised at what the JVP said.

    The comments that stood out the most - i have highlighted. This is also the reason why, no matter what, VP will always stand by MR!

    JVP condemns Governments forced eviction of Tamils

    By Gihan de Chickera & Kelum Bandara

    The JVP yesterday slammed the government for promoting division and mistrust between Tamils and Sinhalese through its ?high handed? and ?foolish? actions of evicting Tamils from lodges in Colombo.

    JVP MP, Anura Kumara Dissanayake, speaking in Parliament on the issue, said power hungry leaders had committed such injustices against Tamils in the past, such as the ?83 riots, leading to the current crisis. ?The 83 riots made Colombo a dangerous place for Tamils to live in, and the current evictions have created a similar situation for them. What is the difference between ?83 and now? Such actions appear to be made on the premise that all Tamils are Tigers?, he noted.

    He said the country?s leaders must deal with terrorism under existing laws and not through such ?highhanded? and ?foolish? actions. ?Terrorism must be defeated. But it is essential that innocent Tamils are included in the fight to defeat terrorism? he stressed.

    He said the government was the guardian of Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim people alike.

    [If the Tamil people feel they cannot depend on the government to uphold their rights, who are you pushing them towards?? the MP queried.]

    To what land are you transporting them? If the government is in charge of the whole country then to whose land are you sending these people? Are you chasing them out of Sri Lanka? Are you sending them to another country?? he thundered, as TNA MPs banged their tables in approval. Dissanayake stressed that Sri Lanka was one country, and all citizens had the freedom to travel, live or work wherever they wanted to, without having to justify their actions to the government.

    ?People come from Hambantota to Colombo seeking employment. They live indefinitely in Colombo. But are they rounded up and sent back to Hambantota?? he queried. He noted that some Tamils were residing in Colombo to escape Prabhakaran, and most were opposed to terrorism. The MP said the stance of the JVP is that Sri Lanka belongs to Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims alike, to live in peace and harmony.

    One should not be surprised by this move by Gota and MR. This is part of the secret deal/pact with VP. With the removal of `all tamils` from Colombo and eleswhere, the separate state is being created. This will also provide much needed fresh recruites to the LTTE. LTTe is badly in need of more youths. Now MR and Gota are supplying just that. At the same time, now the division of the country is taking shape more vividly than ever before.

    VP knew that he would never get a separate state by pursuing the CFA. Hence, he helped MR to become President with the promise that MR would help VP in return to establish his eelam. When we analyse the events since MR`s election one can see that everything he does is designed to help VP in one way or another. MR and Gota are not doing anything about the LTTE low flying planes, why?????? To give the sinhalase impression that if we don`t give in to VP they will drop bombs anytime anywhere.

    This is what MR, the cunning and crook southerner, meant by `honorable peace`.

    [for that MR paid 1 billion to VP mudalali, don`t forget that. It is nothing but a business transaction :) ]

    Money was just a added bonus. For the Service MR is doing for the LTTE (ruining economy, Chasing tamils away back to VP, fighting with all our international community etc etc) VP would have stopped tamils from voting for free! :)

    MR overpaid by 1 BILLION! :)

    Yes, I do agree with you there.

    As usual, UNPers and Eelamists are blowing this completely out of proportion. Government is not evicting all the Tamils from Colombo. What they are doing is just transferring those who found temporary shelter in Lodges who came from North and East.

    Secondly, we are in a warring situation. If bombs are exploded in Colombo and if Tamils from North and East who found temporary shelter in Lodges have found to have hands in those, why should not government close off all the lodges to protect the innocent lives.

    DURING THE WORLD WAR II, IT IS REPORTED THAT AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT HAVE FORCIBLY SENT MORE THAN 18000 ITALIAN AUSTRALIANS TO INTERNMENT CAMPS IN THE AUSTRALIAN OUT BACK, TO PREVENT ANY POSSIBLE THREATS THEY COULD MOUNT IN SUPPORT OF MUSSOLINI`S ITALY.

    PENIS-AM says:

    Forget what RW said.

    Keep on dreaming PENIS-AM. It is abundantly clear that this is your wish... but, it will never happpen.

    GONAWALA TRAITOR RANIL is the UNP leader and the leader of the opposition and your favourite choice for the Presidency of Sri Lanka..

    Also PENIS-AM, nice to see all the positive publicity you`ve given the JVP. Your TRAITOR RANIL the Pervert would have done the same thing and fully appreciates your continued hard work.

    JVP, UNP and LTTE have no moral right to talk about Human Rights. UNP, JVP and LTTE have all advocated violence and Terror. It was TRAITOR RANIL`s uncle JR who released Rohana Wijeweera from jail while depriving Mrs. Sirimavo Bandaranaike her civic rights. TRAITOR RANIL as cabinet Minister fully approved all this..

    If TRAITOR RANIL resigns from the UNP leadership and Opposition leadership then we will stop the attack. Histoy will neverthless record him as one the worst Traitors of Sri Lanka

    TRAITOR RANIL will die of `Galloping Aids`.

    Mucha,

    These UNP`ers and Tigers are equating this incident to ethnic cleansing! My goodness, are they truly this desperate??

    If Mahinda wants ethnic cleansing he will start in Hambantota, Matara and Moneragala. He will burn the Kataragama Devale. Why should he start in Colombo which is 60% Tamil speaking?

    Tamil`s are free to buy land and live anywhere in SL. However there are suspicious Tamils and Sinhalese who Aid Terror. The Security Forces must monitor these types..
