ITAK councillors taking oath were Henry Mahendran, Kaathamuthu Ganesh, Tharmalingam Nesarajah, Weerasingham Ilayendrarajah, Arulnayagam Amirthalingam and Vadivelu Gopal.

Mr. Mahendran said he and other members of the ITAK would work for promoting better understanding between Muslim and Tamil people in Kalmunai.

At the same time the councillors would also pursue a programme designed to develop the Tamil areas that come under the municipal council administration, he said.

Mr. Mahendran assured unconditional support and co-operation of the ITAK for the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) administration in the council to take forward a development programme.

Mr.Kanagasabai Pathmanathan, parliamentarian said the Tamil people of the Amparai district have clearly endorsed LTTE as their sole representatives in the recently held local council elections.

Kalmunai MC ITAK councillors have taken oaths on a day when traditional homeland of Tamil people in the North East have been subjected to aerial and artillery attack by the State armed forces, said Mr.Pathmanathan.

At the recent election, the SLMC captured ten out of 19 seats of the Kalmunai MC. Six were won by ITAK, two by United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) and one by an independent group. Ten SLMC councillors with the Mayor and his deputy took oaths Thursday.
