In what seems to be an escalation of the prevalent military reign in the Northern province, fresh allegations have been made against the military on spying and collecting data on the ‘body language’ of the Northern residents.
The accusations had been leveled at the military by none other than the Northern Province Chief Minister and former judge CV Wigneswaran during his address on Sunday at the Ilankai Tamil Arasu Kadchi (ITAK) convention.
He had remarked that the military is collecting all types of data on the residents of the North including people’s body language, with the help of Israel technology.
The Chief Minister while warning the gathering of the dangers that face them at present had stated, “We should be aware that the army here is not eating grass” using a Tamil expression.
Upon making the allegations, he had urged the youth to gather data on the deployment of the military including their numbers, the lands they occupy and the activities they are involved in.
Moreover, he had also cautioned against revival of separatism and violence, pointing out they are not suited to the emerging conditions of the world, pointing out they had failed to deliver the goods in the past.
