"Our struggle reached the current stage because it developed into a struggle of the people. Tamil people provided the financial and military strength to support our struggle to be free people. This is the reason why we were able to evolve to be a conventional fighting force able to withstand the strength of the forces from the state," said T. Ramesh.

"The challenge posed by our military capability is what finally enabled both sides to seek negotiations. We are engaging wholeheartedly and honestly in arriving at a peaceful resolution of the conflict at peace talks, fifth round of which is currently being held in Berlin, Germany," he added.

"People who refused to participate in our struggle are suddenly showing a lot of concern for our community. They are falsely pointing an accusing fingers at us of forced recruitment and extortion.

"We do not force anyone to join our movement. We have turned away several underage youngsters who tried to enlist with us. Our senior commander Karuna amman has directed us to meet with parents of fighters to hear their feelings and complaints. We are planning to conduct meetings of this type regularly in all regions," Ramesh added.

"We ask the parents to raise concerns if our cadres have unknowingly committed any mistakes. We urge you to help us rectify these mistakes."
