[TamilNet, Friday, 31 October 2008, 14:51 GMT]
"Indian and United States of America have been working with a hidden agenda for their own political benefit political in Sri Lanka and also to safeguard the Liberation Tigers. The speech made US envoy William O'Blake in Mathurai in South India is part of that agenda," said Mr. Somawanse Amarasinghe, leader of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), Sinhala nationalist party at a press briefing held Thursday.

He said Sri Lanka’s President Mahinda Rajapaksa was voted to power in 2005 to conduct war against LTTE. "Mahinda Rajapaksa has saved the country from being divided into two, Sinhala Sri Lanka and Thamil Eelam, by launching the war,": Mr. Amarasinghe added. "If he goes back on his mandate the JVP is prepared to topple his government."

Amarasinghe further said that the Rajapaksa government should have rejected the offer by Indian government to send 800 metric tones of food to Vanni Tamils. By accepting the offer Basil Rajapaksa had pawned the sovereignty of the country to India, he charged.

The JVP would organize demonstration throughout the government if the government devolves powers under the 13th amendment to the constitution due to pressure by India, he said.
