    So this is the way you are trying to get sympathetic votes from the Tamil people. Sounds like you are showing them you are like a friend to Prabakaran. By the way those letters belongs to the government. Those are not your personal items. Not a nice thing to do.

    Pres Chandrika. Can you also make public the Reconstruction Proposal LTTE and your initiative prepared facilitated by your appointee Dr. Gunasingam. It was never released as the war started before it was to be released. I, Like many other professionals in the various fields, jointly prepared drafts and discussed with the LTTE and dr. Gunasingam. I had seen the thick volume but did not get a copy.
