Colombo lacks will to resolve Tamil National question, says Banu

"Disarming the paramilitaries, their expulsion and the creation of normalcy in people's daily life are the essential prerequisites for the continuation of peace talks. But Sri Lanka is unlikely to agree," said Colonel Banu, Batticaloa district military commander of Liberation Tigers, in the first memorial anniversary held in remembrance of Kowsalyan on Tuesday in Kowsalyan Education Centre at Ampilan in the Paduvankarai region of the Baticaloa district. Tamil National Alliance M.P for Batticaloa, S. Jeyanandamoorthy also participated and spoke at the event.

"Our cadres have foiled all attempts by traitors who tried to hurt our national unity for selfish motives. When disciplinary actions were to be taken, they opted to turn against their own people," Col Banu said.

"Kowsalyan involved himself in the struggle for the liberation of our people early in his life, and later joined the armed resistance to work hard and efficiently. He will remain permanently in Tamils people's memory," said Banu.

Col Banu said that the dream, of more than 17000 martyrs who had sacrificed their lives for the future generation, should be realised.

"One renegade commander, in an effort to conceal his selfish acts, attempted to draw our cadres away from the struggle. Many rose against this traitorous act in Batticaloa, and Kowsalyan is the foremost among them", said Col Banu.

Extolling Kowsalyan's qualities, Banu spoke of his insight, interest and efficiency in distributing development projects to the Paduvankarai residents, working with the Sri Lanka Government and NGOs.

Mr. S. Jeyanandamoorthy, the TNA M.P for Batticaloa district said: "Sri Lanka government while showing interest in peace, has tried to crush the National struggle with the assistance of elements opposed to the struggle. This has been the case from Indo-Sri Lanka accord up to Ranil Wickremesinghe when they cast webs of sabotage to break Tamil peoples determination. But the able guidance of our leadership has made them ineffective."

"All Tamils should unite to strengthen the Leader's hands, if Sri Lanka Government deliberately drags on the peace process without taking decisive actions to resolve the Tamil National question", said Jeyanandamoorthy.
