Support President Rajapakse to defeat terrorism – Navin

The assassination attempt to Army Commander Lt. Gen. Sarath Fonseka by a LTTE suicide bomber has proved again the inhumanness, cruelty and complete disregard for accepted norms of behaviour by the LTTE. This attempt is not an attempt against the government, but the entire Sri Lankan state and should be condemned by all parties and the people who are committed to democracy and human rights and those who are trying for a negotiated political solution, Navin Dissanayake, MP, said.

"Being a son of a United National Party leader, who has also been assassinated by the LTTE, I would like to stress at this point that while the UNP has borne the brunt of LTTE suicide attacks as far as a political party is concerned, it is time that all peace-loving citizens of this country unite to overcome and defeat the dark forces of terrorism and separation that are trying to darken our motherland," he said in a statement.

"It is a known strategy of the LTTE to divide various races living in Sri Lanka by these cruel acts. We must all be mindful of what the LTTE is trying to do. It is up to all peace-loving citizens of Sri Lanka regardless of what political party they belong to, protect the sovereignty of this country. We should never be provoked by the LTTE terrorism. At this crucial juncture in the nation’s history regardless of petty political differences we must support President Mahinda Rajapakse for him to face this problem with all the courage and strength that is required." -Island
