JVP demands breakup of Tamil Homeland

The JVP (Marxist Sinhala extremists) a senior partner in the ruling extremist coalition demanded that the Tamil homeland of North-East be broken in to pieces.

The JVP’s plans were reveled by its leader Somawansa Amarasinghe at a news conference in Colombo. JVP opposes the current peace process, CFA and Norway’s role as facilitator. Further the party is well known for its raciest policies including the denial of a Tamil homeland and other fundamental rights for Tamils in Sri Lanka.

The JVP holds 39 seats in the Parliament as well has having a huge influence on the decisions made by the current President and Prime Minister both of whom are known to be strong JVP allies.

Analysts fear that any such break up may have major implications on the already exhausted peace process.
