Grass root level organizers of the TULF in the district expressed their opinion in one voice that Mr.Anandasangaree should step down from the post of President of the TULF. He should be sacked if he fails to do so, the organizers said.
The following decisions unanimously adopted at the conference:
- We reject any opinion against the mandate given by the Tamil people at the last general election that the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam is the sole representative of the Tamils. We condemn the statement made by Mr.V.Ananadasangaree against the mandate
- We call upon Mr.Anandasangaree to resign from the post of presidentship of the party forthwith.
- We call upon the TULF Secretary General to summon the party’s central working committee and general council and to expel Mr.Anandasangaree if he failed to resign the post of president.
Already Batticaloa and Trincomalee TULF district branches have decided against Mr.Anandasangaree continuing as the President of the TULF in view of the statement he made against the mandate given by Tamils at the last general election, sources said.
