The armed struggle was created through the oppression practiced against the Tamil people by chauvinist governments which came to power one after the other. The present rulers should not forget this. The government should stop all oppression against Tamil people said the former TNA member of Northern Provincial Council, P. Kajatheepan.
He spoke to the media men at a media conference held at his home yesterday. The University students and the Canteen operator have been arrested for petty reasons. The PTA augmented by Emergency Regulations had been unleashed on University students who are in the fore front of any struggle for the Tamil people and especially the Mulliwaikkal Commemoration.
The uncivilized activities undertaken by the Government in the North are seem to disintegrating the calm prevailing in the North, he said.
