[TamilNet, Sunday, 07 March 2004, 01:16 GMT]
"The national leader of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Mr.V.Pirapaharan fully supports the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) in the forthcoming general elections. We appeal to Tamil voters to vote for the TNA for its policy. We will not ask voters to cast their votes for particular individual candidates in the TNA lists," said the LTTE senior activist Mr.Arasanna addressing the first TNA election rally held in Point Pedro.

The rally was held Saturday night at Thikkamunai stadium.

Leading member of the Humanitarian Agencies Forum Mr.A.M.Sebastian presided.

Mr.Arasanna who is also the Principal of Thooyavan Political Science College participating as the main speaker said, "LTTE does not believe in parliamentary elections in Sri Lanka. However it supports the TNA in the forthcoming general elections as this is a crucial event marking a turning point in the LTTE's freedom struggle."

"Tamils in the northeast in past extended their whole hearted support to the Pongu Thamil celebrations (Tamil Resurgence Movement). They should also consider the forthcoming general elections as another Pongu Thamil event and extend their full support to TNA candidates," said Mr.Arasanna.

Jaffna TNA candidate and a former president of the Jaffna University Students Forum Mr.S.Gajendran, TNA national list candidate Mr.K.Sooriayakumaran and Vadamarachchi LTTE political head Mr.E.Thaya also spoke.

The meeting started at around 8.30 p.m. The Police stopped the use of public address system at 9 pm according to prevailing rule but the meeting beyond 9pm without the public address system, sources said.
