People clear shrubs in Heroes' Cemeteries to prepare for Heroes' Day

Tuesday November 20, 2018

Shrubs in Heroes' Cemeteries in Tamil Eelam are being cleared, as people prepare for the forthcoming National Heroes' Day of Tamil Eelam.


The Heroes' Cemeteries were desecrated during the presidency of the current Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa; and the Ranil Wickremesinghe government had prevented their reconstruction.


The TNA, which contested and won the 2013 provincial council elections with the pledge to reconstruct Heroes' Cemeteries, had done nothing to keep its election promise, despite governing the Northern Province for over five years.
