[TamilNet, Sunday, 02 May 2010, 09:45 GMT]
The protest march against the deterioration of law and order in Jaffna peninsula that was to begin Sunday morning from Muniappar temple precincts by a newly formed organization called ‘Makka’l Sakthi’ was given up as police at the location did not permit the march to begin, sources in Jaffna said. Though it had been announced in local media about the protest march no other than the sole organizer turned up to march in protest. The media reporters and the police constables on duty at the spot were the only people present, the sources added.
The organizer of the protest march is a person called Kumaravelu whose nomination to contest in the last parliamentary election was rejected.
The same person had formed the new ‘Makkal Sakthi’ party.
He said that he had obtained prior permission but did not know why it was not permitted to stage the protest march.
