TNA Vadamaradchi office attacked

[TamilNet, Monday, 24 December 2001, 13:01 GMT]
A grenade was lobbed on the Tamil National Alliance office for the Vadamaradchi division of Jaffna Sunday night around 8.30. The office was damaged in the attack. The TNA’s chief organiser for the Vadamaradchi division, Mr. S. Aravindan told Tamilnet that he was the target of the grenade attack. He said that gunmen from the Eelam People’s Demoratic Party, a key coalition partner of the President Chandrika Kumaratunga’s defeated People’s Alliance, had lobbed the grenade. The TNA’s Vadamaradchi regional office is located in the Nelliyadi town.

Aravindan said that the assailants had come on a motorbike as he was entering the office last night. The TNA official lodged a complaint with the Police in Nelliyadi about the attack. “The EPDP is unable to bear the ignominy of their defeat. They sulking, but are angry that the Tamils have rejected them. They are out for revenge. There are rogue Sinhala chauvinist elements in the Sri Lankan security forces who still back them to create mischief. The EPDP still poses a serious threat to our lives”, Mr. Aaravindan said.
