EPC TNA councilor condemns attack on University students in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Sunday, 02 December 2012, 15:55 GMT]
Jaffna University student J.Jenanarthanan who is also a Tamil National Alliance (TNA) councilor in the Eastern Provincial Council issued a statement condemning the attack on Jaffna university students by the State armed forces on the Heroes Day. Mr Jenanarthanan was one of the three councilors elected to the Eastern Provincial Council on the TNA ticket from the Trincomalee district. He has been studying in the Arts Faculty of the Jaffna University.

”The Government of Sri Lanka has proved again its suppressive rule with the attack carried out by its armed forces on Jaffna university students. The attack on Tamil students and journalists should be considered as an act against their basic human rights,” Janarthanan said in his statement.

“Under the guise of developing the Tamil areas the SL government is attempting to suppress the aspirations of the Tamil community in its own traditional land,” he further said in a statement issued on Friday.

“Tamil people are currently placed in a tragic situation that they cannot organize remembrance events of their loved ones. To suppress the power of youths could boomerang on the government force that is engaged in destroying it,” the statement issued by the young member of the EPC further said.
