Batticaloa TULF tells ‘Sangaree’ to step down

[TamilNet, Sunday, 26 October 2003, 11:33 GMT]
The Batticaloa branch of the Tamil United Liberation Front resolved Sunday that the party’s leader Mr. V. Anandasangaree MP should step down. “If he fails to do so the secretary general of the TULF should convene the central committee and take necessary measures to remove him from his position as the party leader”, states a resolution passed Sunday by this politically strategic branch in the east.

“The decision of the branch was unanimous. All members the TULF in the district endorsed the resolution fully and unconditionally”, Mr. Joseph Pararajasingham TULF MP for Batticaloa told TamilNet. The TULF is a constituent of the Tamil National Alliance.

The Batticaloa branch of the TULF resolved that the Sri Lankan government should accept the Interim Administration proposal fully and implement it early. It called on the international community to exert pressure on Colombo to do so.

Twelve central committee members of the branch and nine members of the TULF’s national executive committee took part in the meeting at Mr. Pararajasingham’s residence cum party office in the eastern town Sunday morning.

The branch passed four resolutions unanimously at the meeting. The first resolution slammed Mr. Anandasangaree for stating that the Liberation Tigers are not the sole representatives of the Tamil people.

The branch said that the party leader had acted irresponsibly in making the statement.

The second resolution called on him to step down and urged the secretary general to convene the national executive to remove him.

The third resolution demanded the removal of high security zones of the Sri Lankan armed forces in the northeast. It said the military should vacate public buildings, homes and temples.
