If SL Forces are as brutal as LTTE, capturing the 23 sq km stretch easy- PM

(Colombo Lankapuvath March 20) If the SL forces become brutal as the LTTE terrorists the remaining 23 sq km the LTTE is restricted to, can be captured within a period of 02 days, said Prime Minister Rathnasiri Wickramanayaka.

The SL Forces are conducting the humanitarian operations in the northern region with extra concern that the civilian lives are not endangered, stated the Prime Minister in Parliament yesterday (19).

Although the International community forwards proposals to the government saying thatthe civilian lives need to be safeguarded and given more priority, Prime Minister raised the question as to why the international community never forwards any proposals regarding civilians to the LTTE organization who treat the civilians in the most brutal manner and slaughter them.

Further speaking he said that the Government would end the prevailing conflict and free the innocent civilians trapped in the grip of the LTTE in the near future and also assured that democracy will be restored in the north.

The war heroes who sacrifice their lives to gain these victories are always remembered and honoured by all Sri Lankans said Prime Minister Wickramanayaka.
