Former Northeastern province chief minister Varatharajapperumal is currently in Batticaloa to discuss the political and military situation with the Sri Lankan Army (SLA), trusted friends and senior cadres of the EPRLF said sources in the eastern town today.

Mr. Perumal is staying at the military camp of the Razeek group in Batticaloa town.

He was scheduled to meet with the former opposition leader of the Northeastern Provincial Council Mr.Segu Izzadeen at his residence in Akkaraipattu in the Amparai district.

EPRLF sources said that he will also be discussing the political future of his party with well wishers and friends in Batticaloa including Razeek, EPRLF's national Organiser Thurairatnam, senior central Committee member of the EPRLF Niwaz (Nesarajah) and the IBC radio's Batticaloa correspondent who was formerly Assistant Director of Information of the Northeastern Provincial Council.
