Vaiko flays naming of stadium after ex-Jaffna mayor

21 June 2016 01:15 pm - 16     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


MDMK general secretary Vaiko on Monday alleged that by naming a renovated stadium in Sri Lanka after Alfred Duraiappah, former mayor of Jaffna, the governments in India and Sri Lanka had sought to deceive the world that normalcy had returned to the country, the Hindu reported today.

In a statement, he said when there was no trace of thousands of Tamils who had disappeared during the war and when thousands of them continued to live in camps, PM Narendra Modi had inaugurated the stadium through video conferencing.

“This is nothing but an attempt to permanently bury fathom deep over 1.87 lakh Tamils killed by the Sri Lankan Army.” He said Duraiyappah was a traitor and responsible for the death of Tamils in police firing and electrocution at the venue of World Tamil Conference in 1974.

    If we are to believe that he is not shedding crocodile tears and still not trying to win a vote with this cheap tactic what he should do is stop Tamil nadu fishermen encroaching in Lankan waters around north and east of Sri Lanka which have deprived those poor fishermen of Sri Lanka their only livelihood. We shall then believe that he is genuinely cares for Sri Lankn tmils

    Vaiko should have launched an armed struggle immediately to get Tamil Nadu separated as an Independent country. If the centre give kisses to Tamils and allow independence Sri lankans will give him some hearing. A cowered and an opportunist. via DM Android App

    Loud mouthed as usual. Why don't these blooming nationalists think of healing wounds instead of digging into them.

    Yet these so called savior of Tamil people never talk about the millions of Tamils live peacefully and happily in every part of Sri Lanka.
