The JVP today found fault with the government for its failure to find a clue on the disappearance of its dissident group members Lalith Kumar Weeraraj and his colleague Kugan Murugananthan who have been reported missing.

JVP MP Vijitha Herath who was speaking during the committee stage debate on the budget in the House charged that the government had failed to uncover as to what had become of these two persons. He further charged that disappearances are increasing in numbers almost daily and the people are being subjected to pressure each day.

Mr. Herath said this had people’s rights have been suppressed in the past as well and the 30 year old war was a result of it. “The 1987 arms struggle was also a result of it,” he said. The JVP MP alleged that some of the armed groups who are patronised by the government politicians are behind most of the abductions and disappearances that are taking place in the North and the East. He said proper resettlement of IDPs in the North had not taken place to date. Mr. Herath made this point by highlighting that resettlement means allowing the IDPS to go back to the places where they were residing before the war broke out. He said resettlement is taking place on a cluster basis today. Citing an example he said there have been 53 cluster settlements in KKS alone.

Mr. Herath warned that the ultimate result of this would be another struggle as people will not be able to stand the pressure they are undergoing for long. “Make a genuine effort to bring reconciliation and re-establish civil administration in the North,” he told the member.
