Opening a two-day debate on the government's policy statement, Wednesday the former Foreign Minister Lakshman Kadirgamar, said the main opposition the People’s Alliance, will extend its support to the government's efforts to usher in peace. He also cautioned that the PA would not remain silent, if the need arises to speak out in clear terms in the national interest.
“I wish to make it clear that the People’s Alliance will not indulge in anything that might appear to be obstructionist or purely political for the sake of being difficult,” Kadirgamar said.
He further said the People Alliance welcomed the Government’s decision to organize the free flow of goods into the Wanni, and particularly welcomed the Prime Minister’s statement that action will be taken to brief the other political parties when matters are clear.
He also said wide and timely consultations are necessary when it comes to dealing with the big issues involved.
“On the basis of past experience the People’s Alliance welcomes Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe’s view that the Security forces should be in a state of alertness,” Kadirgamar said.
He emphasized that “deep thought ’ is necessary and urged the government to bear in mind the international practice on the question of de-proscription.
