Jaffna Dep. Mayor resigns

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 03 June 1998, 23:59 GMT]
The Deputy Mayor for the Jaffna Municipal council(JMC), Mr. Thambapillai Thirunavukkarasu resigned from his position today. He sent a copy of his resignation letter to the Uthayan, the only Tamil daily in Jaffna, around 9 p.m.

In his letter he states-

"I accept sincerely the Tamil people's struggle for their freedom. I will give up the luxuries of life and support them. I also urge the Tamils to support it."

Mr. Thirunavukkarasu thanked all those who gave him support during his short endure as Deputy Mayor for the JMC.

He told reporters at a press conference held at the Jaffna Mayor's office at Nallur, this morning that it was a military rule in Jaffna and not civil administration. What the Tamil people want is to live in freedom and not a life under the military administration.

He also said that the JMC administration was set up on the basis of the TULF's wrong arrangements.

Even when I was the Deputy Mayor, I did not enjoy the freedom of life. I do not want to live as a slave, he said further.
