Excitement prevailed in Jaffna because of Minister Rauvb Hakeem changing his vehicle often and the venue of his secret meetings several times.
After the Peoples’ Congress had captured the Mannar PS, Hakeem had come in a special flight from Trincomalee with a group of people. He had called hundreds of SLMC high level members of Mannar District and members of wards to a Hotel in Jaffna. But they were taken from there to an alternate venue.
When Jaffna journalists went to the said venue to cover the meeting but prevented by people who came with Hakeem. Then STF was called in and the secret meeting scheduled for 5p.m. was held at 10 p.m. after the journalists dispersed from there but still at another venue, it is learnt. It is further learned that he was engaged in secret meeting yesterday morning.
