The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) today blamed the crime wave in the Jaffna peninsula on the EPDP, an alliance partner of the ruling UPFA, and urged the government to resolve the situation.

TNA National List MP M.A.Sumanthiran moved an adjournment motion in Parliament in this regard and said there was a complete breakdown in the law and order situation in the North resulting in murders, kidnappings, extortion and other crimes.

Mr.Sumanthiran said the perpetrators had managed to get away in each of these incidents.
The situation has been further compounded that even a Government Minister from the area has thought the situation so serious that he himself raised this matter in the House on January 4, 2011, but no reply has been given by the government to date, he said. (YP, KB)

    Only recently the president has said that terrorism will not be allowed to raise it's head again. However, the situation prevailing in Jaffna is deplorable. I am certain this would not be the case had the population in Jaffna been Sinhala. Prompt action would have been taken to bring about law and order in this part of the country for the long suffering populace.

    The govt. must realize that the war is not over yet, as far as the foreign powers and the Tamil diaspora are concerned.They are waiting to pounce on opportunities such as these to set their propaganda machinery working overtime. Immediate investigations should be conducted and seen to be conducted, and the culprits brought to book.

    TNA and EPDP We know who you are

    Dr.Rajeev Thursday, 20 January 2011 12:17 PM

    This is the high time for the President to take action against any one who is really responsible and connected to all these incidents.Otherwise losing Jaffna or Northern Peninsula to thugs once for all. Kindly make the Jaffna population feel secure as they are suffering since 1974. If the action is delayed further, then achieved much deserved peace through a long war will be lost for ever
