M.M.Rathan, the former Vice-Chairman of the Vavuniya Town Council has put out a call saying, “Let’s light sacrificial flames and pay homage at the Eachchankulam Maveerar Thuyillumillam in Vavuniya on the Maveerar Day to be observed on the forthcoming 27th day.”
In a context where the Tamils in North and East and abroad are gearing upto celebrate the National Maveerar day, we, the people of Vavuniya also should get ready for the day.
It is the duty of every Tamil to commemorate the memories of the Holy Maveerars, who had fought for the liberation of our soil and embraced ‘Veerachchavu” (Hero’s death).
In the context of cleaning and associated tasks were being undertaken in other Thuyillumillams, the thuyillumillam at Eachchankulam is under the occupation of the Army.
This Good Governance Government should come forward to pave the way for executing our duties for the Maveerars by removing the Army Camp from there.
Everyone should go beyond petty politics and forgetting their self profits and come forward to undertake this event. Not like last year when commemorations were held in several places, let’s all get together to undertake this event.
