‘No force can destroy Tamil unity’ -Ramanan

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 20 April 2004, 15:01 GMT]
“Our national leader has deep love for our people and land, and our people, likewise, are committed to Tamil unity and remain loyal to the national leader. The people of Batticaloa-Amparai have shown that no force can destroy Tamil unity now,” said a senior commander of the Liberation Tigers, Mr. Ramanan, speaking at the 16th year death anniversary of Annai (Mother) Poopathy, held Monday at the Navalady memorial for the late Tamil activist mother in Batticaloa town, sources said.

The event was organized by the Mothers’ front. Mr. Senathirajah, the political head of the LTTE for Batticaloa town, presided.

Mr. Ramanan, himself from the Batticaloa-Amparai region who participated in the LTTE's counterattack on the renegade Karuna group recently, said that the manner in which the crisis against Tamil nationalism in Batticaloa-Amparai was handled, bringing it to a close using new strategies with minimal bloodshed, showed the commitment of the national leadership for Eastern Tamil people and their land.

The senior commander said further that the Batticaloa-Amparai district will be under the direct supervision of the LTTE leader and Tamil Eelam national policies will be followed. “The victory for the Tamil National Alliance under the slogan ‘Tamils are Tigers, Tigers are Tamils,’ has shown to the international community that the LTTE is the sole representative of the Tamils,” said Mr. Ramanan.

“The Tigers want peace,” Mr. Ramanan said. “But in the South, the people are vacillating between war and peace.”

Mr. Senathirajah, the Amparai district political head, Mr. Kuyilinpan, the head of the Batticaloa-Amparai martyrs’ affairs division, Mr. Thamilchelvan Mama, Secretary General of the Tamil Eelam Liberation Organization, Mr. Prasanna, Dr. Kannan, the Batticaloa Development Committee’s President, Mr. Ganesan, the Secretary, Mr. Thiyagarajah, and Mr. Alphonse Mary Shanmugarajah (Anjaneyar) also spoke at the event.
