A plot is being hatched and staged to impose the PTA on the Tamil students and oppress them using the University incident, accused the leader of Nava Samasamaja Party, Dr. Wickramabahu Karunaratne.
Elaborating on this to the media he said, If the Government goes along the Southern Racists, it will be impossible for it to establish Reconciliation and confidence among Tamil people.The confrontation between the Tamil and Sinhalese is a well synchronized one with the connivance of southern racists and the armed forces stationed in the North.
Impartial action should be taken to find out te racists behind the incident. Although several were released after being arrested under the PTA, but still more than 160 are languishing in prison. Arrests under PTA are occurring in the North and if the University incident is viewed in a terrorist angle it will cause much problems he said.
