Peace process is a rudderless boat - Kousalyan

''Sri Lanka's peace process is like a rudderless boat. We can achieve our political aspirations only if we have exceptional military power. We had only 17 female fighters in Batticaloa ten years ago. Anbarasi was one of them. Today we have a regiment in her name that fought tough battles to defeat Op. Jeya Sikurui'', said Mr. E. Kousalyan, head of LTTE's political division for Batticaloa, Thursday, addressing a ceremony to mark the 9th death anniversary of Lt. Col. Anbarasi.
Lt. Col. Anbarasi, a senior female fighter of the LTTE, was killed in an attack on the Sri Lanka Army camp at Nalaam Muchchandi, on the Batticaloa-Polannaruwa road, 38 kilometres north west of Batticaloa on 27 July 1995.
The public function to mark Anbarasi's anniversary was later held in Vavuniya.
