The Sinhala chauvinist Government bent on destroying the identities of Tamils, said former MP and TNA Candidate Sritharan. He expressed this opinion in a meeting with people at Punnaineeraviyadi in Visuvamadu yesterday.
There is a statue of King Akkiraja located in Akkarayan. It is an annual feature where we offer pongal and garland the statue of King Akkiraja. However this time Army and Police had prevented this turning off people that they have come to celebrate Black Tiger’s Day.
We are in a country where we cannot pay tributes to one of our great grandfathers who had fought with English and Dutch for the people of this country. We are existing as a people who have lost their freedom as well as our identity.
If we are unable to pay homage to people from those who have raised their voice for us to our ancestors, we ask ourselves whether we are with freedom, he said.
