TULF releases election manifesto in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 02 March 2010, 15:39 GMT]
Tamil United Liberation Front (TULF) leader, V. N. Anandasangari, released the election manifesto of TULF Tuesday at the party office in Stanley Veethi in Jaffna, sources in Jaffna said. He said that the Tamil parliamentarians elected in the last general election in Jaffna district had done nothing for the good of the Tamils and that they should withdraw from contesting so as to pave the way for TULF. Hundreds of TULF supporters were present on the occasion.

Anandasangari accused the government for not identifying or arresting the persons who lobbed grenades on politicians and their offices during the presidential election and pointed out that a paramilitary group continues to function full scale in Jaffna. “How could a paramilitary group function while the government claims that the Liberation Tigers had been eliminated?” he asked.

The following are some of the declarations in the TULF manifesto:



  • Put a stop to the culture of arms completely.

  • Develop the lives of the war affected people of Vanni.

  • Identify and reject the persons using politics for their own benefit.

  • Support politics sans violence.


The manifesto further said that the TULF is sincerely interested in the future welfare of the Tamils and that it never had engaged in politics to further selfish motives.

Anandasangari said that the TULF is a political party that is accepted by people in the country and abroad.

He further said that TULF will try to create the right atmosphere to achieve peace with honour for the Tamils and justice for all.

He requested voters to vote for the ‘Rising Sun’ symbol of TULF and pointed out that the votes of the Tamils are being split by many political parties and independent groups contesting in the forthcoming parliamentary election.
