"We urge the Government of India to reconsider its decision to extend the ban on Liberation Tigers for another two years under the Unlawful Activities (prevention) Act," said Selvam Adaikalanathan, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) MP for Vanni in a request sent to New Delhi, sources in Vanni said.

"While the efforts are being made with the support of international community to revive the peace talks between the Liberation Tigers and the Government of Sri Lanka it is only appropriate that the Government of India re-evaluates its decision.

"India's support and contribution are mandatory to the success of peace efforts in Sri Lanka. Tamil people believe that Government of India will extend its support to reach a just a fair solution to their struggle. However, India's decision to extend the ban has raised concerns within the Tamil community on India's committment towards helping Sri Lanka's warring parties reach a permanent solution.

"Liberation Tigers have always regarded India as a friendly power. They are actively working towards maintaining a cordial relationship with India," said Selvam Adaikalanathan his request.

According to a State Government Gazette publication Friday, Union Home Ministry of Government of India issued a notification on May 14 of its decision to extend the ban.
