Puthiya Tamizhagam wants ban on LTTE lifted

[Express Buzz, Saturday, 20 February 2010 10:45 No Comment]

Demanding that the ban on Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) be lifted, Puthiya Tamizhagam (PT) founder K Krishnasamy said that a meeting would be organised in the city in the first week of April to explore the possibilities of achieving this legally.

The meeting, for which organisations and experts from all over the world would be invited, would coincide with the parliamentary elections in Sri Lanka, Krishnasamy told reporters here on Friday.

He said Sri Lanka had begun to return to normalcy and hence there was no reason to continue with the ban.

The Indian government, which had already endorsed the Lankan government’s view that the LTTE has been relegated, should also look into the matter, he urged.

The “needless” ban on LTTE was being used by the authorities to harass supporters of the Eelam cause, he argued, and added that the Tamils there would be able to assert their democratic rights only if the ban was lifted.
