"International community accepts LTTE as Tamils’ saviour”-Gajendran

[TamilNet, Thursday, 15 April 2004, 15:24 GMT]
The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian from the Jaffna district, Mr.S.Gajendran, said Thursday that the international community has accepted that the Liberation Tigers’ military wing safeguards and protects the Tamil people. "Because of this," said the TNA MP, "the international community remained silent, watching the events that took place when the LTTE launched its military operation to retrieve the areas from its renegade commander ('Karuna')."

“President Ms. Chandrika Kumaratunge would not have appointed Mr. Douglas Devananda as Minister if she had a clear vision in finding a political solution to the Tamil national question. Tamil people consider Mr.Devananda as an enemy to their cause and liberation struggle,” Mr. Gajendran said.

In the April 2 polls, Mr.Gajendran was elected in the Ilankai Thamil Arasu Katchchi ticket with more than one hundred thousand preference votes. Mr. Devananda of the Eelam Peoples Democratic Party (EPDP) won a seat in the Jaffna district, obtaining only about 18 thousand preference votes, sources said.

Mr. Gajendran, a former president of the Jaffna University Students Union, told TamilNet that the TNA would extend its fullest co-operation to the LTTE in its liberation struggle. "Since the United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) assumed power, President Ms Chandrika Kumaratunge has not contacted the Norwegian facilitators in regard to the resumption of peace talks," he said.
