Tamils should be vigilant of JVP - Jaffna VC

[TamilNet, Saturday, 17 January 2004, 13:23 GMT]
"The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna is a force that is opposed to the Tamil people's struggle for their rights. It is now striving to become part of national politics. We, the Tamil people, should be vigilant about this," said Prof. S. Mohanadas, Vice Chancellor of the Jaffna University, addressing a meeting Saturday to mark the third anniversary of the Pongu Thamil festival in the northern peninsula.

Prof. Mohanadas speaking at the meeting
"We should not be confounded by southern (Sinhala) politics. The international community is also playing politics along with the southern politicians. Our society has to struggle to achieve our rights. There are 200,000 people still living as refugees among us. Hundred thousand are unable resettle due High Security Zones of the army and the others cannot go back because of landmines."

"The university is not merely a place to teach and to learn. We are doing research for the upliftment of our society too," the Jaffna VC said.

The President of the Jaffna University Students' Union, Mr. P. Baheerathan, presided at the meeting.
