Northern Province Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran said today the gangsters who call themselves the ‘Aava’ group operating in the North is ‘politically-motivated and army-assisted’.

He told a news conference in Colombo that the group did not originate from among the Tamil community per se.

Mr. Wigneswaran said he was speaking to the media on behalf of his Tamil People's Council formed with the backing of the Jaffna-based civil society to advocate the rights of Tamils.

He said the police had been directed to get to the bottom of this problem. (Kelum Bandara)

    All tamils are no LTTE'ers or sympathisers. If an allegation is made, the state should investigate and find it. Only racist elements make adverse comments on any side. Be united. Division never makes unity. We have suffered for more than 30 years. Hence, when making statements it should be perfect.

    CV is nurturing Aava the same way Amirthalingam nurtured LTTE. In the end, CV will be treated by Aava the same way LTTE treated Amirthalingam.
