2ND LEAD

Eezham Tamils not abandoned by Tamil Nadu, says LTTE

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 08 October 2008, 13:55 GMT]
Expressing gratitude on behalf of the Eelam Tamils for the solidarity shown by the leaders and the masses of Tamil Nadu, the Political Division of the Liberation Tigers of Tamileelam (LTTE), in a statement on Wednesday said that Tamils, who are facing an onslaught by the indiscriminate shelling and bombardment by the Sri Lankan forces, are inspired by the expression of solidarity from Tamil Nadu.

The LTTE statement described the plight of the thousands of Tamils uprooted from their homes and villages and forced to seek refuge under the trees due to the "genocidal war" launched by the Mahinda Rajapaska regime, said the solidarity expressed by the political leaders in Tamil Nadu carried a significant message. The voice from Tamil Nadu has come at a time when the Rajapaksa regime is "conceited in its military aggression with the thinking that there is no one in the world to extend their voice or active support towards the Eezham Tamils."

All Sinhala forces and parties are giving support to the war being waged by the Rajapaksa government with a mistaken assumption that even Tamil Nadu will not voice support for Eezham Tamils, the statement signed by LTTE Political Head B. Nadesan said.

Countries opposed to India were militarily assisting the Sinhala state and some countries of the world are providing financial support, the LTTE statement charged. "Making use of the inter-state diplomatic relations, the Sinhala state has focussed its efforts to crush the just freedom struggle of the Eelam Tamils."

The Eezham Tamils hoped that the solidarity extended by all the leaders of Tamil Nadu would transform into concrete political action, the LTTE statement issued in Tamil further said.
