In the aftermath of the killing of two Jaffna university students, six Tamil political parties have called for a ‘hartal’ (stoppage of civil activities) in the north tomorrow, a former MP said yesterday.

Former Tamil National Alliance (TNA) MP Suresh Premachandran told Daily Mirror yesterday the six parties- ITAK, TELO, PLOTE, EPRLF, TULF and ACMC- would organize this event.

He said this would be done to register their protest with the government over the incident, and call for action against the wrongdoers. “We suspect a hidden hand behind this incident. We asked for the scaling down of the military presence in the North in the belief that the police can look after law and order there,” he said.

He said the use of force by the police could not be condoned at any cost.(Kelum Bandara)

    Sri Lanka Police is still in war mentality. They shoot because they are scared. Now 5 of them got arrested. The subject is before law. Why hartal now?

    Why? Because Tamils like you can never be trusted. Banki is a US puppet. He can not see US and UK murders in the middle east.

    Very sad indeed All Yahapalana bending over back offers are totally rejected by all these parties and want to agitate people to create another conflict hoping international community will intervene to devide the country. All communities suffered imensly over 30 years. Does party political gains worthwhile against the suffering of all people. via DM Android App
