JVP takes UNP to task
The JVP yesterday blamed the main Opposition UNP for discouraging the
Sri Lankan armed forces at a time they engaged in an invaluable service
in the Northern District to protect the country's territorial integrity
from the LTTE.
JVP Parliamentarian K. D. Lalkantha said that this was clearly seen
when the UNP refrained from voting when the Emergency vote was taken up
in Parliament on Thursday.
He also blamed the UNP of holding press briefings at this juncture
and making various statements without appreciating the services rendered
by the armed forces in the battlefield.
