The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and several other Tamil parties have commenced a protest in Vavuniya focusing on three main issues.
Vauniya MP Sivasakthi Anandan said that the protest began this morning and will continue till evening today.
New Assistant Government Agent Divisions (AGAD) are being created within the Welioya AGAD in the Mullaitivu District and attempts are being made to settle Sinhalese persons in the area, the former TNA MP stated.
The other two issues he claimed were that people from the South are being settled in the North and East, without resettling IDPs in those areas, and also for land in the North-East to be registered to the people in those areas.
TNA parliamentarians Mavai Senathirajah, Suresh Premachandran, S. Adaikalanathan, E. Sarawanabawan, MP Sivasakthi Anandan, TULF Leader V. Anandasangaree, PLOT Leader S. Siddharthan, TELO Political Wing leader M. K. Sivajilingam several others were part of the protest. (R. Suganthini, Krishan and Kapil)Pix by Romesh Madushanka,Kapil

Focus on what Govt has already done for tamils. What has the TNA and other tamil parties done for their people? Tamils are settling in Wellawatte, Bambalapitiya & elsewhere in Colombo but you dont hear any protest.
