Eastern Provincial Council Elections: Tamil Identity Should Emerge During this Tough Times - TGTE

"Support lent by the Tamils in the upcoming Eastern Provincial Council Elections, should not be misconstrued as a support lent to the 13th amendment and the Provincial Councils".
    LONDON, ENGLAND, September 06, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- "The Transnational Government of Tamil Ealam (TGTE) was formed by the Diaspora to fill the gap that was created in our Homeland, where Tamil's political space was severely curtailed to express their aspirations. Ever since its creation, TGTE has been promoting through democratic and peaceful means, to achieve an independent and sovereign state of Tamil Ealam." Said Mr. Thanigasalam Thayaparan, Minister of Political Affairs of TGTE.

"The activities of the Sri Lankan Government especially actions amounting to genocide and the mass killings at the end of the war in Mullivaikkaal and subsequent attempts to destroy Tamil national identity and survival, have demonstrated and reconfirmed that formation of a sovereign independent State of Tamil Ealam is the only means to safeguard life and liberty of Tamils in the island of Sri Lanka." Mr. Thayaparan continued.

This concept also happens to be the political theme that has been adopted by the Tamils universally, ever since Tamils overwhelmingly voted in the Sri Lanka's 1977 General Elections for the creation of an independent and sovereign State of Tamil Eelam.

"The 13th amendment and the Provincial Councils are both rotting corpses." Said a Tamil leader. TGTE wish to reiterate categorically that any support lent by the Tamils in the upcoming Eastern Provincial Council Elections, should not be misconstrued as a support lent to both the 13th amendment and the Provincial Councils.

"However, let us also admit the fact that the need of the hour is for us to demonstrate yet again our national identity in this current restricted political space. Let us not forget that the responsibility of every Tamil living today in the Island of Sri Lanka is to ensure that the Tamil identity emerges intact through these tough times." Mr. Thayaparan continued.
