VoT expands broadcast to mark Kittu memorial day

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 01 January 2003, 20:07 GMT]
Voice of Tigers (VoT) announced in its daily nightly broadcast today that it will increase its broadcast time and distance from 16 January marking the tenth memorial anniversary of Colonel Kittu, said sources in Vanni.

Colonel Kittu was known for his relentless efforts to implement the vision of leader Pirpaharan to expand the quality and reach of Tamil media reflecting the struggle of Tamil people, VoT said. It is a fitting testimony to Kittu's efforts to introduce a significant milestone on LTTE's media operations to celebrate his memorial day, VoT added.

"It is disheartening to witness orchestrated opposition by the chauvanistic elements in the South to the import of broadcast equipment by LTTE," said S.P.Thamilchelvan to the VoT technicians in a ceremony held to open a new VoT building in Vanni.

"We have been working on importing new broadcast equipment for VoT for the past several years. Current peace climate has made this possible now.

"We regard the new equipment as very essential in this climate of peace. It is our cardinal duty to inform Tamil people on all issues affecting the current peace talks so that Tamil people can express their opinions on matters affecting them.

"Recent efforts by the People Alliance (PA) and other extremists to draw the Norwegian Government into this matter, condemning the involvement of the Norwegian Government and creating a controversy over this can only be viewed as an ill conceived attempt to sabotage the peace process," Thamilchelvan added.

VoT is broadcast on waveband FM 98, sources said.
