The Tamil National Alliance states that it will engage in a fast tomorrow if the government does not respond.
The planned fast is set to take place in Vavuniya.
A fast unto death campaign is currently underway by LTTE detainees attached to the Colombo Remand prison & the Vavuniya prison.
These detainees demand for expedient legal processing of cases filed against fellow inmates.
Leader of the Democratic Peoples Front Mano Ganeshan has stated that he will extend his support in the event of a probable hunger strike launched by the TNA.
Meanwhile Minister Nimal Siripala De Silva speaking during yesterday's parliamentary sessions had noted that the government was prepared to make an official statement in this regard today.
