Thamilchelvan slams Colombo for Kousalyan's slaying

[TamilNet, Thursday, 10 February 2005, 14:35 GMT]
"The cowardly act of the Sri Lankan government has taken away Kousalyan and his colleagues from us. Kousalyan came back to Batticaloa with many dreams. He came back with ambitious plans to rebuild this land, devastated by the Tsunami and impoverished by the war imposed by the Sinhala chauvinist state", said Mr. S. P Thamilchelvan, head of LTTE's political division on Thursday, speaking at the funeral of Mr. E. Kousalyan, at Thandiyadi Martyr's Memorial in Batticaloa.



"We thought the Tsunami disaster which killed Tamils, Muslims and Singhalese, regardless of their race and class, would have driven some sense into Sinhala political leaders. Kousalyan's murder shows they have not changed. They are still intent on crushing the Tamil nation by foul means", said senior LTTE leader, Mr. V. Balakumar in his address.

Col. T. Ramesh, Ms. Thamilini, head of LTTE Women's wing, TNA MPs and Mr. A.L.A Abdul Javath, President of the Federation of Mosques in Batticaloa also spoke before Mr. Kousalyan's last rites.

LTTE leaders Mr. S. Karikalan, Mr. E. Pararajasingham, head of Tamil Eelam Judiciary and Mr. Thamilenthi, head of LTTE's finance division were present at the last rites. Thousands of mourners thronged the Thandiyadi martyr's memorial for the funeral.
