Tigers will campaign for TNA- Elilan

[TamilNet, Friday, 27 February 2004, 00:02 GMT]
"The Liberation Tigers decided today to campaign for the victory of the Tamil National Alliance. We felt that the 2004 election is a unique opportunity for the Tamil speaking people to express their political aspirations," said Mr. S. Elilan, the head of LTTE's political divison for Vavuniya, addressing the first campaign meeting of the TNA in the northern border town Thursday.

"Other political parties are telling you that they will give you many benefits if you vote for them. We, the Tigers, give our lives for the good of our people," Mr. Elilan said.

"The international community wants to see whether we are united in our cause. It is the responsibility of every Tamil speaking person to show the world we are united," he said.

"Parties that are bent on denying our rights have got together in South. We, the TNA, have come together to fight for our rights. We have fulfilled the mandate you gave us in 2001 by telling the Sri Lankan government to negotiate with the Liberation Tigers," said Mr. Selvam Adaikalanathan, ex- MP for the Vanni addressing the meeting.

All the TNA candidates for Vanni spoke at the meeting.
