TNA urges Tamil people to strengthen LTTE hands

[TamilNet, Sunday, 17 October 2004, 16:12 GMT]
Tamil National Parliamentarians (TNA) addressing first public rally held in Trincomalee Town Hall Saturday night as a part of the three day political awareness campaign in the district stressed that Tamils should strengthen the hands of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) to establish the Interim Self Governing Authority (ISGA) which is urgently needed to reconstruct the war torn northeast province and to rehabilitate the lives of several thousands internally displaced peoples now sheltered in camps and welfare centres.

They further stressed that Tamil people needed a self- rule to develop their homeland.

Mr.S.Sivakumar, Trincomalee town political head of the LTTE presided.

Seventeen TNA parliamentarians arrived in Trincomalee Saturday participated in the meeting.

Mr.R.Sampanthan said country's constitution should be changed to find a permanent solution. If failing to do so it could derail the ceasefire agreement.

He said government is purposely dragging the issue of resuming peace talks with the LTTE on the basis of ISGA as its main partner in the coalition government is against granting meaningful devolution of power. But Tamils should not lose confidence at this stage. But we should be united behind the LTTE to achieve our goal, he added

Mr.Selvam Adaikalanathan said chauvinist elements are working hard to divide Tamils. Tamils should not give room for any more division among them.

Mr.Jeyanandamoorthy said government is testing the patience of LTTE. Government should think that this is the last chance for it to find a peaceful permanent political solution to the Tamil national question.

Mr.S.Gajendran said Tamils have not benefited from the current ceasefire. We have no faith in the parliament. However we have been elected to parliament to keep away traitors being elected.
