[TamilNet, Wednesday, 20 February 2002, 01:30 GMT]
(Photos) More than fifteen thousand people from all parts of the Batticaloa and Ampara districts thronged the east coast town for the Pongu Thamil rally and cultural program Wednesday. The main approach roads to the town were clogged with thousands who came for the event from places as far away as Pottuvil, 112 km. south of Batticaloa. The Pongu Thamil upsurge was organised by eastern university students, the local traders associations, teachers unions, trade unions and fishermen's societies and the Tamil National Alliance.
