LTTE still wants North-East of Sri Lanka – India
While seeking to extend the ban on the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), the Indian Centre and the Tamil Nadu government told a tribunal that the banned outfit nurtures an idea of “greater Tamil Nadu, which includes the state of Tamil Nadu, part of Kerala, part of Karnataka, part of Andhra Pradesh and North-Eastern provinces of Sri Lanka”.
The tribunal was also told that an offshoot of the banned terrorist outfit carried out a blast outside the home of former UPA minister P Chidambaram and tried to target the home of V Narayanasamy in Tamil Nadu.
The Delhi High Court tribunal was set up earlier this year to review whether the ban on LTTE should be renewed for another five years. On November 20, the tribunal, headed by Justice G P Mittal, upheld the Home Ministry’s notification to declare the LTTE as an “unlawful organisation” for the next five years.
MDMK chief Vaiko, who walked out of the NDA recently, had argued against the government’s decision to extend the ban.
To support its claim that LTTE posed a danger to India, the state government said that in March this year, two members of the Tamil National Liberation Army — said to have close ties with the LTTE — blasted an iron pipe bomb near Chidambaram’s residence in Tamil Nadu and threw pamphlets to support the ideology of their founder-leader, the late Tamilarasan. A similar pipe bomb was found outside the residence of former UPA minister Narayanasamy.
As per the tribunal’s order, the Tamil Nadu government had said, “The LTTE, even after its military defeat in May 2009 in Sri Lanka, has not abandoned the concept of separate nation for Tamils… Lifting of the ban on LTTE would imply allowing a deadly foreign terrorist organisation to operate from India… giving a psychological boost to LTTE as well as the secessionist Tamil forces in India.” The state added that after the ban on LTTE in 2012, as many as five new cases had been registered against the outfit.
The MHA also said LTTE has links to other anti-national organisations, like the UK chapter of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front, Kesari Lehat Movement, Sikh Activist Network, etc, Indian Express reports.

I concur with the contents of the article.
Despite the valiant efforts of our Ranaviru, the LTT and its followers including the TNA and its Chief Minister, Ex–Justice Vigneswaram, are still dreaming of a Greater Tamil Nadu where Jayalalitha could hold sway over the Tamils.
The external forces including the Catholic Church backed Global Tamil Forum of father Emmanuel and Suren Surenthiram are pretty active in espousing the separationist call.
It is only Mahinda Chinthana that can withstand this push for separation and deal with these beggars who are domiciled in the west.
Mahinda Chinthana is under threat in the forthcoming presidential elections with a CBK-RW cabal promoting MY3. The peace loving peoples of Sri Lanka should realise the intensity of the threat and return a resounding result on 08 Jan that shows the World what peace means to 20 m people living within the shores of our Emerald Isle.
Unlike Retd Gen Ponseka, I hope MY3 will return to the Mahinda Chinthana fold when the events are concluded.
Never be lead by opportunists of the likes of CBK and RW who have had their day but never delivered to the amude wearing common man of Sri Lanka including our brethren in the North and East.
Yes, Monis. I totally agree. Unfortunately most of the people can not see the bigger picture and the danger.
“Monis” the name sounds familiar. Is it not the maniac terrorist who created havoc in Sydney recently? Steve Monis, is he a relation of the maniac?
we are not allowed to do again bloody war.this is only indian dream.
What you said makes sense Monis. Sri Lanka is at cross-roads. In pure Sinhala the scenario is just like ‘maga sitiyoth tho nasi…gedara giyoth ambu nasi. In my opinion, MY3 is being used by RW & Satellite. MR knows he never can give a fight and win with MR. They are piggy backing MY3. It is also interesting to know on what conditions TNA supporting MY3 et al? On the other hand, if MR get his 3rd chance to run the country, he might think the voters gave a mandate to ruin the country with Rajapakse clan. This is real a catch-22 situation.
