The twenty sixth-death anniversary of the late Tamil leader Mr.G.G.Ponnamabalam, the founder president of the All Ceylon Tamil Congress (ACTC) and a popular leader of Tamils in the 50s was observed in Jaffna today, according to sources in Jaffna.

Mr.Gajendrakumar is also a Jaffna district Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian.

A former commissioner of Jaffna Municipal Council Mr.C.V.K.Sivagnanam speaking at the occasion recalled the services of late leader G.G.Ponnambalam to the Tamil community.

At the Jaffna office of the Tamil United Liberation Front (TULF), Mr. S.Aravindan, Jaffna Municipal Council member garlanded the photograph of late leader Mr. G.G. Ponnambalam. Late leader Mr. G. G. Ponnambalam was one of the three founder leaders of the Tamil United Front formed in 1972. The other two were late Mr.S.J.V.Chelvanayakam of the Ilankai Thamil Arasu Kachchai (Federal Party) and Mr.Soumiamoorthy Thondaman, leader of the Ceylon Workers Congress.

Meanwhile on representation made by Mr.Gajendrakumar security officials Sunday agreed to reduce the check points from three to one for Gurunagar fishermen to go to sea for fishing with immediate effect. Earlier Gurunagar fishermen had to go through three check points in the area to go for fishing in the Jaffna lagoon, sources said.
