Collegues vow to carry on policies of slain MP

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 15 November 2006, 18:31 GMT]
Speaking in the presence of large number of civilians gathered in Jaffna on Wednesday to pay their last respects to Tamil National Alliance (TNA) MP Late Raviraj Nadaraj, fellow parliamentarian Suresh Premachandran accused an armed group linked to Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) as directly responsible for the killing of Raviraj,sources in Jaffna said.

"While one of the assailants blocked the vehicle of Raviraj, the other sprayed the MP with bullets using an T-56," Premachandran said. Pointing out that the killing took place in the High Security Zone directly across the Head Quarters of the Military Police, and the killers were able to walk away from the crime scene without any fear of being apprehended, Premachandran demanded that the GOSL should accept direct responsibility for the death of Raviraj.

The late parliamentarian was a key member of the Anti War Front and firmly believed that no peaceful solution can be reached by waging war. He fought relentlessly to find a constructive solution for the Tamils. The forces wishing to continue the war in the country must accept the blame for his assassination, Premachandiran added.

Selvam Adaikkalanathan, Mannar District TNA M.P addressing the public spoke of the dedication of the late parliamentarian and vowed to continue to fight with increased vigour for the liberation of Tamil Nation, and added that all TNA members will continue to fight tirelessly based on the lofty ideals of Raviraj both inside and outside of the legislature.
