Meanwhile, Varatharaja Perumal, the leader of Eelam Peoples’ Revolutionary Front (EPRLF Varathar faction) and the former Chief Minister of North-East provincial council, arrived in Jaffna Wednesday, sources in Jaffna said.

Mahinda Rajapakse will worship in the Buddhist temples in Nalloor and Aariyaku’lam Naaka Vikaarai Thursday morning before addressing the public meeting.
