The JVP today said the President’s move to appoint a parliamentary select committee to decide on a political solution to the ethnic issue was a farce and called on the government to first reveal its stance on a political settlement.
JVP Propaganda Secretary, parliamentarian Vijitha Herath told a press conference that the government earlier appointed an all party representatives committee to determine a political solution, but after meeting 128 times for four years without yielding any results.
The party also called on the government to immediately investigate into the Channel 4 documentary to verify the allegations.
Herath said that the telecasting a documentary did not prove if the incidents are true or false.
He said that no international organization or country has the right or the powers to force an investigation upon Sri Lanka.
