Rehabilitated LTTE cadres form a new political party
A group of rehabilitated LTTE cadres have launched a political party with the aim of winning their rights.
Speaking to the media in Sampur on Friday (3) the leaders of the new party said they had registered the party ‘Rehabilitated Tamil Liberation Tiger Party’.
A group of more than thirty former Tigers were present at this media briefing held near the Kali Kovil at Sampur in Trincomalee.
Chairman of the new party, Kandasamy Inbarasa, said that this party was launched with a membership of 12,000 rehabilitated Tamil Tiger cadres.
He said they launched this party because those who were rehabilitated had not received any assistance as yet. At the same time, he said that a large number of members were living with physical injuries and some were still in prison. That is why they were joining the political stream.
He said that through this party they will attempt to obtain their rights. “The current government had helped the rehabilitated former Tigers to a great extent.
However, the Tamil National Alliance does not talk about us. We did not begin this political campaign against them. We believed in them and now we have been deceived,” he said.

chairman mao in a lecture on contradictions identified two types anatagonostic and non antagonistic contradictions and antagonistic contradictions can only be resolved through war ….protracted war that mao tes tung waged against imperial armies supported by nayive chiang kai shek that led to total victory. what china today is a consequence of that revolutionary struggle.
the contradictions that the tamils faced with in the past particularly under prabhakaran were non antagonostic in that no foreign forces were involved. therefore the only means through which these contradictions could be resolved was through negotiation.
If one were to reflect on the histories of revolutions that led to the elf determination mao has been proved right the last of which was the fall of Aparthied in South Africa.
Tigers are animals of prey and its driving force is blood lust and any ideology founded on blood lust is doomed to end in failiure
This is great news; not only great news but a welcome relief from the corruption that has been in our nation for the past 69 years of Sinhala Buddhist majority rule.
These 12,000 youthful members of our society are now offering a political path hitherto unforeseen in the north as well as in the south.
Mao Tse Tung’s thoughts and deeds are now dead; irrelevant in current day social dynamics. Those who want to idealise Mao Tse Tung and his actions are dinosaurs who are best confined to the magnificent Museum in Colombo 7.
