The military security provided to Eastern Province Chief Minister and TMVP Leader Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan has been withdrawn with immediate effect, TMVP sources told Daily Mirror Online.
The TMVP is unaware of the reason behind the security withdrawal and is expected to write to the Police DIG of the area to seek security for the Chief Minister’s residence, TMVP sources added.
The move comes after the TMVP recently decided to contest the upcoming General Election independently and not with the ruling UPFA government.
The TMVP had last week decided to contest in the north for the first time and stated that they were confident of a victory in the Jaffna peninsula.
However party members had added that they were facing obstacles from opposing parties who were contesting in the district and due to this they were expecting some clashes just before the polls. “We are expecting some clashes in the north but we are ready for the challenge,” TMVP members had stated.

He is past his 'best before' date. So now no security, as he is dispensable. Karuna take note! You may be the next.

Election Commissioner please wake up. It is your area. How someone can transfer Government Servants during the election period?

hehehehe....we all know the reason which TMVP not aware of. If you are independantly contest then do not expect to depend on security from government. Government provide security to dependants. Isn't it fair enough.

He cannot have it both ways - to be on his own and also look for special rewards that come with an affiliation to the ruling party.
Friday, 26 February 2010 04:35 PM

Now Pillayan will understand the "use and discard" mentality of the Govt ... Voters beware!
Friday, 26 February 2010 07:39 PM
Pillayan, your 'head' next?

If this so-called security has already been established in the country, as declared and celebrated, then there is no need to provide personal security, for anyone. This should apply to all, whether government or not. ... No point in just wasting money on the forces, when there is no such requirement.
Friday, 26 February 2010 08:37 PM
Will declare 'Tamil Elam' and then escape to India?
Friday, 26 February 2010 08:56 PM
This means he is on the list ... ?
Friday, 26 February 2010 05:35 AM
Keheliya must have done his 'SECURITY ASSESSMENT' and would have decided that there is no threat. Same theory they applied for Sarath Fonseka. You lick my shoe, you get everything. You stop licking, you get nothing. That is what we call assessment.

Obviously, because Pillayan has decided to contest the general elections on his own without the UPFA. Providing security is the exclusive domain of the government and provided at the whims and fancies of those in charge. The theory "either you are with us or with them" applies in all these cases. Also looks like Karuna did not have any compassion towards his erstwhile ex-colleague.

After election ????
Friday, 26 February 2010 05:43 AM
If he support he will enjoy all the benifts, otherwise no security nothing.
