"The Indian government should lift the ban on the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) as a first step to win the hearts of Tamils in northeast province and to facilitate the peace process brokered by Norway," the Tamil National
Alliance Jaffna district parliamentarian, Mr.N.Raviraj, told TamilNet Friday
Tamils in Sri Lanka have lost confidence in India because of its actions in recent times. To regain the confidence of Sri Lankan Tamils, India should take appropriate steps such as lifting the ban on the LTTE in its country, said Mr.Raviraj.
India should ask the Sri Lankan government to establish an interim self governing authority in the northeast and to hand over its administration to the LTTE, Mr.Raviraj said.
He added that India should extend its fullest co-operation to find a lasting political solution to the Tamil national question through the facilitation of Norway.
