TNA MP warns protest against desecration of statues in East

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 11 April 2012, 00:15 GMT]
If the Sri Lankan Police fails to take action, within one week, against the culprits who destroyed and desecrated the statues of Mahatma Gandhi, Robert Baden-Powell, Swami Vipulananda and Poet Pulavarma'ni Periyathampipi'l'lai on 05 April inside the ‘high security area’ of Batticaloa city, there will be protests against the desecration, TNA parliamentarian Pon. Selvarasa warned on Monday. Stating that the destructions have taken place within 48 hours of the restoration of an already destroyed statue of Swami Vivekananda in Aaraiyampathi, Mr. Selvarasa blamed that there was a connection between the desecration of statues in Batticaloa in January and March and the decapitation of the statue of Thanthai SJV Chelvanayakam in Trincomalee in November 2011.

At a meeting participated by police officials of the district, TNA parliamentarians, Chief Minister of Eastern Province, SL Government Agent in Batticaloa, education officials of the district, representatives of Gandhi Seva Sangam and the Scout Movement, the TNA politician said that it was the Sri Lankan ‘security’ forces that were responsible to bring the culprits to justice.

The SL Police had failed to take action against those who destroyed the Vivekanada statue three months ago, the MP further said.
