Poster war signals campaign start
[TamilNet, Wednesday, 24 December 1997, 23:59 GMT]
The EPDP began a poster campaign in Jaffna today.
One of its posters said "when the rains arrive, mushrooms sprout. When there are elections, political parties will jump into the arena - (But) in the service of the people is the EPDP."
Another EPDP poster gives a short message. It says "In happiness and in sorrow" and underneath this the poster shows the Veena, the EPDP's symbol in the elections. The poster is aimed at popularising the EPDP's elections sybmbol say sources in Jaffna.
The PLOTE meanwhile is spraying the anchor symbol of its political party, the Democratic People's Liberation Front (DPLF), on walls and posts all over Jaffna town.
The others are yet to begin the poster wars.
