[TamilNet, Sunday, 06 November 2005, 16:21 GMT]
Nineteenth death anniversary of Major Ganesh, senior leader of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), was observed in Muttur east Saturday at the Major Ganesh mausoleum located in the heart of Kaddaiparichchan, now renamed Ganeshapuram in the memory of LTTE leader. Mr.Elilan, Trincomalee district political head participated as the chief guest.

Ganesh Kala Mantram (Cultural Center) organized the remembrance event and Mr.S. Pirapaharan, Head of the Center presided. Foundation stone has been laid on his nineteenth death anniversary for the construction of a pre-school after Major Ganesh's name, President of the Cultural Center said in his address at the event.

Mr.Elilan said: "Martyrs have been foundation stones for the success of the Thamileelam freedom struggle. National leader launched the freedom struggle at the start as guerilla warfare. Some groups expressed doubt whether guerilla warfare could lead to the liberation of Tamils. Today the LTTE has been recognized as a conventional army due to the contributions of senior leaders Major Ganesh and others."

Referring to the forthcoming presidential poll, Mr.Elilan said both main contenders of the executive presidency have failed to state constructive proposals in their manifestos to find a political solution to the Tamil national question meeting the legitimate aspirations of Tamil people.

"Voters in the LTTE held areas have been asked to come five hundred meters from their villages to army controlled areas to cast their votes. This is against the international norms. Institutions such as election commission and other election monitoring groups have failed to bring this notice of the authorities concerned, Mr.Elilan said.

Ms Kaaronja, Trincomalee district political women wing and several others also spoke.

Major Ganesh (Sithiravelu Sittampalam) born in Kantalai joined the LTTE and came to Muttur and organized the liberation struggle. Major Ganesh was killed in battle on 5.11.1986. The mausoleum was constructed in 2001 and the Kala Mantram after his name was formed in 2002. Ganesh Education Centre was established in the year 2003. The main Kaddaiparichchan road was renamed Ganesh Veethi in 2004 and in 2005 the village was renamed Ganeshapuram.
