Friday May 03, 2019

The former chief minister of Northern Tamil Eelam has called for troop withdrawal from the Tamil homeland.

 

In a statement released today, Mr C.V.Wigneswaran said the Sri Lankan government must not use the current climate of insecurity created by Easter terror attacks to militarise the Tamil homeland.

 

The security of the Tamil areas can ensured by deploying community-oriented policing tactics, the former Northern chief minister added.
