Karikalan addresses Jaffna university meeting

[TamilNet, Monday, 15 March 2004, 12:54 GMT]
“Karuna could not have acted traitorously without external backing. He has been bought over by an external power that is intent on destroying our liberation struggle and our leadership. People in the Batticaloa Amparai district know this now. He was instigated by the external power to betray his own people”, said Mr. Sivagnanam Karikalan, a senior leader of the Liberation Tigers from the east, addressing a packed meeting at the University of Jaffna Monday. Mr. E. Kousalyan, the head of the LTTE’s political division for the Batticaloa Amparai district also spoke at the meeting.

“I tried many times to persuade Karuna that his decision would spell disaster to our people. But he was adamant. He refused to listen to me. Our leader had great trust in him. He never accepted complaints we made against Karuna. No other regional commander was given so many special powers. All the divisions of the LTTE in the Batticaloa Amparai district were under Karuna’s direction and command."




“It is an undeniable fact that eastern fighters and people have made great sacrifices to the Liberation struggle. But Karuna has used this fact to justify his treachery”, said Mr. Karikalan.

“Our leader said that Karuna has become unbalanced and cautioned us to act with great responsibility in resolving the problem," said Mr. Kousalyan in his speech.

Mr. S. Ilamparithy, the head of the LTTE’s political division in Jaffna and Mr. S. Thamilanpan, the head of the Voice of Tigers radio were also present at the meeting.

Mr. V. Baheerathan, the President of the Jaffna University Students’ Federation, also attended the meeting.
