On May 18, the first anniversary of the death of LTTE leaders including Velupillai Prabhakaran, Tamil Nadu will have a new political party — this time to be launched by a film director.

The latest entrant from the Tamil cinema is an ardent LTTE supporter Sebastian Seeman, who on Saturday unveiled the Naam Tamilar (We the Tamils) party’s flag, which closely resembled the rebels’ Tiger insignia — barring the twin rifles in the background.

Naam Tamilar, now functioning as a social outfit, aims to toe the hardline abandoned by other Dravidian parties over the years on issues ranging from the situation in Sri Lanka to Mullaiperiyar and seek a better deal for Tamils and Tamil Nadu.

The organisation was formed during the last days of the Lankan conflict when Tamil Nadu witnessed a string of protests.
