Imageයුද්ධය අවසන් වී ඇති මේ මොහොතේ වහාම ක්‍රියාත්මක වන පරිදී දේශපාලන විසඳුමක් ඉදිරිපත් කිරීමට ආණ්ඩුව ක්‍රියා කළ යුතුව ඇතැයි එක්සත් ජාතික පක්‍ෂයේ මහ ලේකම් තිස්ස අත්තනායක මහතා කොළඹ දී අද (20) පැවැති ප්‍රවෘත්ති සාකච්ඡාවකදී පැවසීය

UNP Gen. Secretary Tissa Attanayake , addressing a media conference yesterday (20 May) , said the UNP had always wanted the LTTE crushed. In fact , Karuna , an erstwhile LTTE cadre himself had recently mentioned this when he explained how the UNP got him down to Colombo and made overtures to demolish the LTTE .

The UNP   leadership giving strict orders that all should attend Parliament on Tuesday after victory shows how the UNP was eager to destroy the LTTE irrespective of who destroys it. The UNP had only been against killings of innocents and committing of crimes against the political and media  opponents  of the Govt. using the emergency laws.

It is the duty of the Govt. to make this victory a lasting one by a political solution which is indispensable if terror is not to rear its ugly head again. Restoring normal civil life in the conflict areas and permanent peace across the entire country are paramount . The UNP is always ready to assist the Govt. in its efforts in these directions , he asserted
