Political struggle will continue until Tamil aspirations are met -Sampanthan

[TamilNet, Sunday, 26 July 2009, 18:43 GMT]
"Tamil militancy was a part of the political struggle of the Tamil people to achieve the right to self-determination in the traditional homeland of the Tamil people in the northeast. The Sri Lanka government says that the armed struggle has been completely defeated. But the political struggle of Tamil people would go on till the legitimate political aspirations of the Tamil people are achieved," said Mr.R.Sampanthan, leader of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentary group, addressing a meeting in Vavuniyaa Saturday in support of the TNA candidates contesting the elections to the Vavuniyaa Urban Council under the banner Ilankai Thamil Arasu Kadchchi (ITAK).

"Hence the Tamil people in Vavuniyaa and Jaffna should vote for the ITAK to show the world that the Tamil political problem in Sri Lanka still exists even after the defeat of Tamil militancy," said Mr.Sampanthan.

TNA parliamentarians Maavai Senathirajah, Vino Noharathalingam, S.Kanagasabai, and lead candidate of the ITAK contesting the Vavuniyaa UC election, G.N.Nathan, also participated in the election meeting.

Mr.Sampanthan added, "the whole world is anxiously waiting for the verdict of Tamil people in the elections to the Jaffna MC and Vavuniyaa UC. It is the utmost duty of the Tamil voters to tell the world by electing the ITAK administration to the two local bodies that Tamil people would continue their political struggle to achieve their legitimate political aspirations."
