Feb 16, Colombo: The National Bhikku Front, the monk wing of Sri Lanka's Marxist People's Liberation Front (JVP), today urged the government to abrogate the Ceasefire Agreement signed with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) before it completes its fifth year.

National Bhikku Front President Dambara Amila Thero said the Ceasefire Agreement creates a dangerous situation for Sri Lanka.

Meanwhile, the ongoing fast by the Front against the ceasefire entered its fifth day today. The fasting monks are conducting their protest in front of the Colombo Town Hall.
