A huge anti-Sri Lanka campaign has been activated, targeting the March 2014 UNHRC sessions in Geneva by local and global elements headed by the so-called ‘Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal’ (PPT) in Germany and the TNA, National Freedom Front (NFP) leader and Constructions, Engineering Services, Housing and Common Amenities Minister Wimal Weerawansa said today.
Addressing the media at the party office at Battaramulla, Minister Weerawansa said the objective of the two anti-government entities was to keep the allegations of human rights violations alive and incite member countries to pass another resolution against Sri Lanka at the UNHRC.
“The TNA has reportedly said there will be a struggle against the government if the incumbent governor Major General G.A. Chandrasiri was not replaced with a civilian governor by March. This is a direct challenge to the authority of the President and to the state. Therefore, the NFP urges the government to take steps to introduce amendments to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution through the Parliamentary Select Committee and remove the threat posed by 13A,” Minister Weerawansa stressed.

How long are we going to put the blame on each other, including those who comment sounding enmity, other than forgeting the past and thinking afresh as rational human beings in fostering unity as Sri Lankan?

TNA won the northern provincial council elections. They are the sole representatives of Tamils in Sri Lanka. Now are you going to categorize them as LTTE?

Since now the funds spent on war effort has been saved, its high time to suspend all financil resources on other development projects temporarily and launch an effective pro-Sri Lankan campaign to counter all false allegations and should recruit personnel from both local and international level until such time the NNHRC's "devil dancing" ceremoney is over!

the request for a civil governer is not a threat for the state. actually it is the duty of the president to look after the maters being transformed into under civil management and not keeping under emergency status! WW is ou again!

In that case PA won the parlimentary and the presidential election. Do you accept them as the sole representative of Sri Lankan people. BTW I still remember you people considerd LTTE also as the sole representative of Tamils. LTTE is considered by World community as muderes. Does that mean Tamils are murderes.

PPT have all nationality inqulding one sinhalis non of them tamil.

Fact, you are not aware of facts or you distort it. Only 5%of the Tamil population in the country live in the Northern Province, and the TNA represents only them. The majority of the Tamils live in Sinhala dominated areas, and they dont have any issues with the government. It is the TNA creating all the communal problems.

It appears that the appointment of the governer is quite legal and the govt./ president has the right to appoint whoever they think is fit. If TNA is asking for his removal, they must give valid reasons for their request.
