Boycott Pongal festival: ACHC

All Ceylon Hindu Congress President Kandiah Neelakandan has appealed to the Hindu community to boycott the State Pongal Festival to be held in Jaffna.

He stated that it would be appropriate to hold the event after all political prisoners have been released, after the entirety of lands under the military is returned and all the displaced have been resettled. He also appealed to the Hindus to refrain from celebrations but engage earnestly in prayers for the wellbeing of all.
