LTTE remnants plan to call for Transitional Govt

[PTI, Monday, 3 August 2009 14:24 No Comment]

LTTE remnants now underground have threatened to hold elections for what they called Transitional Government of Sri Lankan Tamils living abroad.

The announcement was made by Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran who claimed to be coordinator of the committee for the formation of provisional Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE). He said the elections would be held next year.

The claim by little-known Rudrakumaran came as Colombo is preparing to undertake local bodies elections in Jaffna and Vavuniya, where election fever is at its height.

"What we are trying to establish is not a government in exile," a Pro-LTTE website quoted Rudrakumaran as saying.
