Speaking at a media briefing convened Wednesday, TNA Parliamentarian, Suresh Premachandran, expressed the following views.
[quote]It was said on several occasions that the government should come forward themselves to resolve issues including the search for missing persons, human rights violations and war crimes during the war. But the Government of Sri Lanka has not done this. What is the government doing now? Look at the decision taken in parliament and the actions against the Muslim people.
There is a saying about the elephant flinging soil on to its own head. It started with attacks on mosques and grew to the burning down of their business establishments. Now it is being said that the government is going for a presidential election. But at the same time, the government is preparing for military rule if they are defeated in parliament or through other democratic means.
Priority has been given to military intervention especially in the Northern Province. Students are being given military training under the guise of leadership training. Principals are being given the ranks of majors and colonels. They are attempting to recruit young men and women in Jaffna to the Army. Many youth in Mullaitivu have gone to other areas out of fear that they will be forcefully recruited to the Army. They have a fear about the Army.[/quote]
