TGTE Prime Minister Says Tamil Eelam Is Still A Viable Solution

I conducted an interview with Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran—the Prime Minister of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE). Mr. Rudrakumaran spoke in depth about the mission of the TGTE, viability of a separate homeland for the Tamil people, his work as the former legal advisor to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), and alleged human rights violations committed during the ethnic conflict.

I asked Mr.Rudrakumaran, why a separatist solution, in the eyes of the TGTE, still remains the most viable solution for the Tamil people.

Mr.Rudrakumaran responded by stating that “the Tamils constitute a nation” entrenched with objective factors such as a distinct language and distinct culture. Mr. Rudrakumaran, furthermore, asserted that based on the relationship Tamils have to a “definable historic homeland” it is the position of the TGTE that “Tamils do not constitute a minority but a nation.” Therefore, Mr. Rudrakumaran stated, “they [Tamils] are entitled to the right to self-determination.” Mr. Rudrakumaran cited the General Assembly resolution 2625 as evidence that the Tamils’ right to self-determination can be exercised in various forms including, “in the form of a federation or associative structure and also in the form of an establishment of an independent state.” Visvanathan Rudrakumaran Credit- Samuel Oakford:IPS

I asked Mr. Rudrakumaran what the TGTE has accomplished since its creation six years ago. Mr. Rudrakumaran stated that the TGTE has kept the aspirations of the Tamil people alive. On the 40th anniversary of the Vaddukoddai resolution, the TGTE held its commemoration across from the UN head office which Mr. Rudrakumaran added signified how the Tamil issue, because of the role played by the LTTE and the TGTE, “galvanized the international community.”

Adding to the accomplishments of the TGTE, Mr. Rudrakumaran stated that the TGTE has established a Monitoring and Accountability Panel (MAP), consisting of five individuals with international credentials, with a mandate to “monitor the design and mechanism of transitional justice in Sri Lanka” from a “victim’s perspective.” The MAP will ensure, according to Rudrakumaran, “whatever mechanisms proposed by the Sri Lankan government are in compliance with the human rights council resolution” and this mandate, Mr. Rudrakumaran added, is to “prevent any sham or show trials” which maybe orchestrated by the Sri Lankan government.

The 2015 Human Rights Council resolution affirms the importance of participation in a justice mechanism of “Commonwealth and other foreign judges … and authorized prosecutors and investigators.”

Mr. Rudrakumaran took issue with the lack of clarity expressed in the resolution. For example, Mr. Rudrakumaran asserted, “The resolution says transitional justice should be done with the participation of foreign judges, foreign prosecutors, and foreign investigators. The question [then] is what is meant by participation?” The Sri Lankan government, Mr. Rudrakumaran stated, holds the position that “[international judges] can merely come as observers.” This runs contrary, Mr. Rudrakumaran stated, with the commissioner’s report which “clearly and explicitly states” that there should be a hybrid justice mechanism with “international judges, in judicial capacity, not as mere observers.” Mr. Rudrakumaran reiterated, on part of the Sri Lankan government, the lack of consultation with the victims. Rudrakumaran attributed the lack of “ethnic neutrality in Sri Lanka” as a reason why this “matter should be referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC)” stating that the “victims are the Tamils and the government is the Sinhalese. We have to look at it through this ethnic lens. That is the main thing we have to take into account. ”
Mr.Rudrakumaran stated that the position of the TGTE, as he claimed was vividly demonstrated by the “Mullivaikal genocide,” is that the basic security of Tamils can only be guaranteed under an independent state.

I asked Rudrakumaran whether the TNA agrees with the TGTE’s proposal for an UN referendum in Tamil populated areas to determine whether there should be a separate state. Mr. Rudrakumaran stated that the TNA has “not directly commented on it.”

This is true, however, Mr.Sampanthan has repeatedly asserted in Parliament that “there is no longer a demand for a separate state” insisting that the ethnic issue will be solved under a “united and indivisible Sri Lanka.” The TGTE, I believe, is acting irresponsibly by ignoring the political viewpoints held by Tamil politicians, who hold that the ethnic issue must be solved under a united Sri Lanka. These Tamil politicians were elected in vast majorities by Tamils currently living in the North and the East. The TGTE, by ignoring the viewpoints held by Tamil political leaders in Sri Lanka, are ignoring the interests of Tamils living in the North and East.

I questioned Mr.Rudrakumaran as to whether it was realistic to sever the island of Sri Lanka, considering the implications it would have to a fragile federation like India. I also asked Mr.Rudrakumaran whether he really thought India would ever let Sri Lanka be divided.

Mr.Rudrakumaran did not believe India would “vehemently oppose it.” Mr.Rudrakumaran attributed the geopolitical changes occurring “with the Tamils and Tamil Nadu” as a basis on which India will “eventually change its position.” Furthermore, Mr.Rudrakumaran asserted, “In fact, I think having an independent Tamil state will further India’s security.”

I responded to Mr. Rudrakumaran’s statement by posing the problem of any possible domino effect which may occur to a fragile federation such as India if Sri Lanka does separate.

Mr.Rudrakumaran responded to my statement about possible domino effects; “You cannot compare the situation what is happening in Sri Lanka with the situation in Punjab or Assam or other states. India never bombed Punjab; India never killed 100,000 Punjabi people. What happened in Sri Lanka was an act of genocide. You cannot simply equate that with the situation in India. In India, the states want more power sharing… decentralization… that is entirely different from what is happening in Sri Lanka. So I do not think that analogy is correct. Take for example, the creation of Bangladesh. It did not have any domino effects in India. It should have had domino effects in West Bengal. It didn’t. Or in Assam, it didn’t. So I do not think anyone can say if Sri Lanka is divided there can be domino effects in India.”

Similar to how some sectors of the Tamil diaspora call what happened in Sri Lanka, “genocide,” some members of the Punjabi community recognize the 1984 anti-Sikh riots as genocide. The anti-Sikh riots were also recognized as genocide by the California state assembly. The Khalistan movement, a nationalist movement seeking a separatist country in the Punjab region of South Asia, still holds significant sentiment among sectors of the Punjabi community. As it pertains to the creation of Bangladesh, it was largely based on a war between India and Pakistan. In the case of the Tamils, Prime Minister Narendra Modi consistently advocates for solving the ethnic issue under a united Sri Lanka and even urged the Tamils to be patient. In addition, after Prabhakaran’s killing of Rajiv Gandhi, it is highly doubtful that India would ever allow a separate state to emerge in the North and the East of Sri Lanka.

As a legal advisor for the LTTE, Mr.Rudrakumaran took specific steps to challenge the US designation of the LTTE as a terrorist organization. I asked Mr.Rudrakumaran to talk about what specific steps he took to challenge the designation of the LTTE.

Mr. Rudrakumaran stated that the terrorist designation applies to non-state entities “who are engaged in acts of terrorism which are prejudicial to the U.S. national interests.” Mr. Rudrakumaran stated that three arguments were taken: (1) the LTTE is not a non-state entity but a de-facto government of a de-facto state, (2) The LTTE is not involved in terrorist activities but a national liberation struggle, (3) the LTTE’s activities are not prejudicial to the United States’ national interests.

Mr.Rudrakumaran disclosed, with respect to the first two arguments, the Courts stated that they could not rule on it, the matter was a political issue and it would be deferred to the state. “Only on the issue of whether the LTTE was engaged in terrorist activities or whether it was a legitimate measure of a liberation struggle [the Courts] cited there was an attack on a police station. [The U.S. court] considered [that] the attack on a police station cannot be considered as an attack on a legitimate military target. [As a result] of that [the U.S. court] said the LTTE was a so-called terrorist entity” Mr.Rudrakumaran stated.

Reflecting upon the legal ruling of the LTTE as a terrorist entity, Mr.Rudrakumaran asserted, “Even though, legally, we lost the case, I thought politically and morally we won that case. We clearly showed to the world that this “terrorist-designation” is a political game. If you do not like it, you simply designate it as a terrorist organization. In that respect, I think we won that case.”
Furthermore, Mr.Rudrakumaran asserted, “We also challenged the constitutionality of the law. The law also prohibits [individuals] from providing material support. We argued that we wanted to support the LTTE’s legitimate activities—running the schools, orphanages, medical facilities, courts etc. Still, in that respect, we lost because the U.S. court said you cannot separate the money that goes to [legitimate activities] and the money that goes to the liberation struggle.”

However, Mr.Rudrakumaran stated what was achieved in favor of the Tamil nationalist cause through the United States litigation, “But what the court also said was that you have a right to independently support the LTTE or the national liberation struggle. The Court said a person in the U.S. has a right to go and say, ‘Terrorism is the best means to achieve Eelam and achieve our political goal.’ That speech is protected. Through that litigation, we dispelled the fear among the people. And the people said that you can politically support the [Tamil national liberation struggle’s] call for an independent state.”

Mr.Rudrakumaran participated as a legal advisor in the Thailand talks between the LTTE and Sri Lankan government during the Norway brokered peace talks. “We prepared the ISGA—it was very detailed proposal put forth by the LTTE. At that time when the LTTE put forth the proposal, many world leaders said positive things but then Chandrika disrupted the peace talks. She dissolved the peace talks,” Mr.Rudrakumaran stated.

When the LTTE released the ISGA, it received criticism as being too “maximalist” and was subsequently not considered as a basis of negotiation. I asked Mr.Rudrakumaran whether the proposal was indeed too maximalist.

Mr.Rudrakumaran responded by placing the blame on the Sri Lankan government for its unwillingness to negotiate with the LTTE’s proposal. “When Thamilshelvan submitted the ISGA, he did not say take it or leave it. The LTTE never said take it or leave it. [The] LTTE said we consider it as a basis and negotiate. If the government had any concerns, they could have brought it to the negotiating table, we could have negotiated. But that didn’t happen. Who was at fault? It was the Sri Lankan government. And Ranil also has another proposal, we put forth both proposals and we sit down and talk. But that didn’t happen. I have written an article also [about] the flexibility expedited by the LTTE during the peace talks. The LTTE first went to the peace talks saying that we want an interim administration. Then Ranil came to the table and said, ‘sorry I don’t have power. Chandrika has all the power. I cannot do anything.’ LTTE exercised a lot of flexibility.”

Mr.Rudrakumaran, in this regard, is correct in his criticisms of the Sri Lankan government. Historically, the UNP and SLFP are regarded for their intense level of disagreement and lack of consensus. Peace processes must have bipartisan support in order to be successful. In Northern Ireland, the peace process would not have been successful if there was not some form of agreement within the parties of Northern Ireland. And also, the peace process would not have been successful if there had not been consensus in Britain between the Conservative and Labor party to support the policy of Northern Ireland. The failure to get that level of consensus in Sri Lanka was fundamental to the breakdown of the peace process.

In the Thimpu talks, the Tamil delegation, consisting of representatives from the EPRLF, EROS, LTTE, PLOTE, TELO, and the TULF outlined the Thimpu principles as a meaningful solution to the Tamil national question. Such a proposition was put forth together, in unison, by all the Tamil factions. It then begs the question whether Prabhakaran weakened the ability for Tamils to achieve self-determination when he later killed off political leaders such as Appapillai Amirthalingan and Neelan Tiruchelvan when Prabhakran could have easily negotiated with them.

Mr.Rudrakumaran questioned whether the LTTE was responsible for the killings of the political leaders and claimed that the “killings of Amirthalingam or Neelan Tiruchelvam, in my view, have nothing to do with the Thimpu principles. And it has not weakened the Thimpu principles in any way.” Mr. Rudrakumaran referred to the Thailand talks as a manifestation of the Thimpu principles because the “LTTE participated in the talks with power and they were able to determine the course of events.” Mr. Rudrakumaran concluded that the “Tamils’ call for independence is a historical cause so any isolated incident did not have and will not have any impact on that process.”

It should be disclosed that Mr.Rudrakumaran also had a personal history with Neelan Tiruchelvam. In the spring of 1988, it was Harvard lecturer Neelan Tiruchelvam who mentored Mr.Rudrakumaran and helped enroll Mr.Rudrakumaran in the PhD program at Harvard Law School. Mr. Rudrakumaran did not complete his PhD. Mr.Rudrakumaran, despite Neelan’s kind generosity, decided to distance himself from Neelan and would not even admit or apologize for the manner in which Neelan was killed.

Neelan Tiruchelvam, a Harvard renowned constitutional lawyer and key advisor to Chandrika, believed in engaging in peaceful dialogue with the LTTE. Neelan, as a strong advocate of power sharing, would have contributed to the LTTE’s power sharing proposal—the ISGA. Neelan was far more intellectually superior and skilled than the members of the diaspora the LTTE recruited to draft the proposal. Neelan would have refined the proposal to make it appear more feasible and less maximalist. In addition, since Neelan was a member of Chandrika’s President’s counsel, Neelan would have strongly insisted to Chandrika that she take the proposal into consideration. However, the LTTE by killing political intellectuals who voiced dissent, instead of negotiating with them, ultimately helped seal their own fate for what would transpire in 2009.

In 2005, the LTTE boycotted the elections which ultimately led to the election of Mahinda Rajapaksa. I asked Mr.Rudrakumaran whether Prabhakaran’s decision was a mistake and whether he then accepts that the LTTE are also to blame for the fate of the Tamil people in the final stages of the war.

Mr.Rudrakumaran asserted that he could not say the boycott was a mistake. Rudrakumaran added that, “boycotting the elections is also a form of democracy. You just don’t go to participate because the elections are being held by the Sri Lankan government. If you do not accept the sovereignty of the government then you can boycott. That is another form of democracy.”

The subjugation of the Tamil people, Mr.Rudrakumaran declared, happened not only under Rajapaksa but several other Presidents from Chandrika, JR.Jayawardene, and Premadasa. Mahinda, according to Rudrakumaran, “was the latest manifestation of a Sinhala operation. We cannot simply narrow it and say; if not for Mahinda, everything would have been great. That is not the case. Even under Chandrika, school children were killed.”

Under Chandrika’s government, I replied, forty thousand Tamils did not die in a narrow strip of land.

Mr.Rudrakumaran asserted that it is uncertain what circumstances may have unfolded under a Chandrika government during the final stages of the war. Mr.Rudrakumaran insisted that we must take into account a lot of “unintentional factors” which occurred during the final stages of the war.

As Prime Minister, Rajapaksa seemed to be open to a reaching a political solution to end the war, but Rajapaksa saw that he could gain more politically by taking a Sinhala nationalist and aggressive militaristic standpoint. It was the boycott that secured the margin of votes in order for Rajapaksa to win the election over Wickremesinghe. Allegations regarding a secret deal between Mahinda and the LTTE leadership to boycott the election have long surfaced in the Sri Lanka media. There was allegedly money involved. A certain sum of money was requested and paid by Rajapaksa to the LTTE proxies in return that they boycott the election. Ranil Wickremesinghe even referred to it in Parliament. If it is in fact the case that Mahinda, a man who destroyed the LTTE, came into power on the backs of a deal with the LTTE, then there is serious reflection that needs to be done among LTTE supporters as to whether the LTTE are also to blame for the fate of Tamil people in the final stages of the war. If Ranil was voted into power, it could have been a very different trajectory.

The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam, if they are truly fighting for the justice of all Sri Lankan Tamils, have a duty to speak out against every instance where Tamils were victims of injustice. I explicitly asked Mr.Rudrakumaran, as Prime Minster of the TGTE, whether he would be willing to apologize for crimes committed by the LTTE such as its ethnic cleansing of Muslims, killing of political dissidents like Neelan Tiruchelvam and Rajini Thiranagama, forced recruitment of children, killing Tamil leaders in rival factions, among other crimes where Tamils were victims of injustice.

Mr.Rudrakumaran disputed my statement of categorizing what happened to the Muslims as ethnic cleansing. He argued, “Ethnic cleansing did not happen in Sri Lanka. Normally, ethnic cleansing happens when there is a demonization of a community and then destruction follows that demonization. But look at the Tamil-Muslim relationship. The Tamils never demonized the Muslims. So you cannot say what happened in Sri Lanka was ethnic cleansing. That’s the wrong terminology.”

The United Nations Commission of Experts, in a January 1993 report to the Security Council defined “ethnic cleansing” as “rendering an area ethnically homogenous by using force or intimidation to remove persons of given groups from that area.”

Atrocities such as the Kattankudy Mosque Massacre where over 140 Muslims were massacred, in addition, the forced expulsion of Muslims from the North where an estimated 72,000 were evicted from their homes provide clear evidence that there are grounds to categorize the atrocities as “ethnic cleansing.”

It is indeed puzzling why Mr.Rudrakumaran refuses to apologize for even a single atrocity committed by the LTTE, especially since even Anton Balasingham notably apologized for the LTTE’s atrocities against the Muslims. In addition, Anton Balasingham implied regret over the killing of Neelan Tiruchelvam and expressed guilt over the LTTE’s missed opportunity to negotiate the original 1995 GL-Neelan package.

As it pertains to other acts committed by the LTTE against the Tamil people, Mr.Rudrakumaran refused to apologize citing that “it has not been proven.”

Mr. Rudrakumaran reiterated, “What we have to do now, especially the second generation, is to rally around what happened in Mullivaikkal is genocide. And we need justice.”

If the TGTE genuinely wants justice for all Tamils living the North and East they must accept that, yes, the Sri Lankan government committed atrocities against Tamils but so did the LTTE. Until then, the TGTE will continued to be viewed, not as a group that speaks out about injustice committed against all Tamils, but only as a group that speaks out against certain injustices committed against Tamils insofar as it is convenient to the LTTE ideology. By doing so, the TGTE has effectively decided that human rights violations committed by the LTTE against Tamils, such as the LTTE’s use of civilians as human shields during the final stages of the war, is not worthy of acknowledgement and those Tamils do not have a sufficient grievance.

        “Go to India and ask for Tamilnadu.”

        You are right, they should go back to Tamil Nadu whence their ancestors came from.

        Where are you planning to send all the Aryan Sinhala/Buddhists whose forefathers came from North and mostly South India by Kallathonis who have occupied my ancestral land and believe they are the rightful owners of this land?

        Both Tamils and Sinhalese practice Indian culture and religion, communicate in Indian tongue. It is only appropriate if both these two stupid people went back to their ancestral home in India at the same time.

        When are you leaving?

        By the way how do you plan to get rid of Tamil gene from Aryan Sinhala/Buddhists for its going to remain for many hundred of years with them?

        You may want the Tamils out of this island or convert them into Sinhala/Buddhism as your ancestors done so in the past however the Tamil gene M4 will remain with you forever.

            Julampitiye Amaraya,

            “Here in Sri Lankan Tamizar and Sinhalese do not use rail road as their toilet.”

            All you have to do is take an early morning stroll along the beaches near the shanties of Mt. Lavinia, Ratmalana and Moratuwa to gain first hand experience of Aryans emitting the brown stuff.

            There is an interesting story about Buba Beach Sea Food Restaurant that is located just south of the Mt. Lavinia Hotel. About twenty years ago, this location was a famous place for shanty dwellers to go and relieve themselves. Then some chaps decided to acquire the property and even called it as Poo Bar when they first opened it because the place has been famous for doing poo earlier. Later on, they were advised to change it to make it look more respectable. Hence the name Buba. Although a paradigm shift did take place, the new name still rhymes with poo!

            Then there’s the case of the famous Why Not Bar at Narigama Beach in Hikkaduwa. In the early 1900s, Leonard Woolf visited the villagers here in his capacity as Assistant Government Agent. Indeed, he was travelling from Baddegama, which was the setting for his novel The Village in the Jungle. When he was at Narigama, he wanted to relieve himself and asked the villagers to show him to a toilet. When the villagers told him that there was none available and that he do it in the beach like the villagers do it, he stated “Why not?”

            Having realized the benefits of the squatting position on the beach and the salubriouness of the fresh salty air wafting through his suspended bollocks when doing it out in the beach, he experienced a paradigm shift. Indeed, it was this very experience that led to him adopting liberal political views and becoming an opponent of imperialism! You must see it to believe it.

            Years later a person opened a bar at Narigama and decided to name it Why Not to honour Leonard Woolf’s realisation of the benefits of doing it out in the open!

            And here’s some statistics on the brown stuff. On the following link, you can see a list Indian states ranked by availability of toilets.

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_states_and_union_territories_ranked_by_availability_of_toilets

            51.7 % of households in Tamil Nadu do not have a toilet. The Aryan state of Bihar, where the Sinhalese are supposed to have come from, the magic number is 76.9%!

            Then, there’s the case of the cleanest cities in India. Here’s the link for the list:

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleanest_cities_in_India

            I draw your attention to the Swachh Sarvekshan results for 2016 in the above link. The third cleanest city is Tiruchirapalli in Tamil Nadu. There are two cities from Tamil Nadu in the top twenty – Tiruchirapalli and Coimbatore. Patna, the capital of Bihar from which the Sinhalese come from, is located at the 70th position!

            Chennai, the capital of Tamil Nadu, is at the 36th position.

            With all that talk of Tamils in India doing it on rail tracks, you fail to realize that all trains in Sri Lanka as of today have only what are called Hopper toilets that dispose waste onto the tracks. Whenever a train passes over a navigable waterway like in Kelaniya, Moratuwa or Kalutara, you can always see the brown stuff flying. In this regard, Tamil Nadu is ahead of Sri Lanka because the 114 km Rameswarm-Manamadurai track is a green train corridor that is free human waste discharge. Sri Lanka is yet to achieve such a no shit landmark!

          Tamilnad may be the 10th richest. Jayalalitha and Karunanidhi are evidence for that.

          But, Tamilnad people are still primitive, just like animals. Even in the university they kill Dalits like poisonous snakes. Beat with wooden poles to the person who has fallen on the ground.

          So, I can say Jaffna University Science faculty students are civilized.

          Keynes!
          Maharashtra is the biggest economy within India at Rs 16.87 lakh crore in terms of gross state domestic product (GSDP), according to the latest report by credit rating agency Brickwork Ratings. The state is followed by Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh.

          The report, which said Maharashtra’s GSDP has grown by 11.69 per cent for the financial year ended March 31, 2015, also highlights the fact that Maharashtra earns approximately 70 per cent of its total receipts through tax revenues — the highest among the bigger states — followed by Gujarat and Tamil Nadu.

          The findings are part of Brickwork’s fourth edition of a nationwide, multi-state research analysing finances of all the states. The rating agency looks at the State government’s willingness and ability to honour debt obligations, and the rating criterion includes an analysis of political, economic, budgetary, financial and institutional parameters considered relevant to the State government’s creditworthiness.

      TAMILS HAD OPPORTUNITIES TO FIND A SOLUTION
      Sri Lankan Tamils’ problem was sorted long time ago, but the Tamil leaders weren’t smart enough to accept it. Tamil leaders always end up in wrong side, and look for ways to create disasters not solutions. When G G Ponnambalam was the leader Sinhalese generously agreed for 40:60 solution even though Tamils’ population wasn’t 40% at that time. But Tamil leaders rejected it. Later on decided to take arms from New Delhi to kill their fellow countrymen. Then the second opportunity came through Indo-Lanka agreement. Again Tamil leaders rejected the good offer, but decided to listen to the West, and turned their guns towards their fellow Tamils, Muslims, Sinhalese and Indians.

      If Tamil leaders have little brain, little love for their motherland and people they would have found a solution long time ago. Tamil leaders are the least when it comes to honoring smart people. Tamils don’t know the value of unity, the foreign powers can do wonders among Tamils because of their divisions. Jealousy is eating Tamils. Tamils would do anything to undermine their fellow Tamils, even if they have to join with foreign powers. I have been living in Jaffna since last August. I have been to many public events. Indian High Commission and the Westerners are the VIPs for those events, but not smart Tamils or Sinhalese. Therefore, sharing power with Tamils is sharing power with foreign powers; this will lead to disaster. Literally the government has to be on its knees to please the foreign powers; if it shares power with Tamil leaders.

      DANGEROUS CREATURES OF ASIA
      Tamil leaders talk a lot about democracy and human rights, but they hardly value democracy or human rights. Where were those Tamil leaders, including the diaspora leaders, the Western leaders, especially the UN leaders when the Tamil armed groups were mercilessly gunned down each other group members; and assassinating political leaders and intellectuals far more than any other terrorist groups in the world? Tamil leaders do not act as they live among the 21st century humanity. Last forty years Tamils have avoided smart Tamils and gone backward. Generally speaking, Tamils can’t handle smart Tamils. This is why they have ended up in this sad status even though Tamils are five times in population in the world than Sinhalese. I have found that changing Tamil leaders’ useless ideology is like straightening a dog’s tail.

      It is not easy to make the following statements as a Tamil, but I would like to be honest with myself and others. Sri Lankan Tamils are the most dangerous creatures in Asia. They are the least when it comes to valuing democracy, human rights or unity. Tamil leaders just blindly support foreign powers for their own benefits. They do dirty politics for their own perks and benefits. That is why Tamils have nothing after thirty years of brutal war. Therefore, I have urged the Sinhalese leaders and the other Asian leaders to watch diaspora and Sri Lankan Tamil leaders’ moves carefully; because, Tamil leaders have the ability to destroy Sri Lanka and South Asia, as they have done for the last three decades. The West has an intention to use Sri Lankan Tamils to dominate Indian Ocean and South Asia; as it has been using the Jews to dominate the Middle East.

      TAMIL LEADERS PROTECT FOREIGN LEADERS
      Tamil leaders are for foreign leaders, but not for their own intellectuals. Tamils for Obama and the other Tamil leaders have done nothing when I had alerted that they are in the wrong path. My articles and comments never published in the diaspora’s media or in the mainstream Tamil media. Tamil leaders have done nothing to me when I suffered for exposing the hardships of Australian and Canadian Aboriginal people. Nobody raised their voices when the Australian government deleted my citizenship due to my writings about the struggles of Australian aboriginal people. They never said a word when the Canadian government put me in a prison under false accusation when I exposed the First Nations’ hardships. Not a single leader felt sorry for me when Nazi Germans stopped me from attending my mother’s funeral in Sri Lanka due to my writings.

      Germany was bombed and destroyed by the Five Eyes twice; but Germany stopped me from attending my mother’s funeral because I exposed the Five Eyes’ double standards. This is call evolution, even Nazis know the power of unity. They know that they have to stick together to undermine the billions of Asians. However, Sri Lankan Tamils don’t understand the value of unity even after their long suffering for more than three decades due to the Asia’s longest brutal civil war. This is really sad news, not only for Tamils, but for Sinhalese and South Asians. Therefore, I believe that Tamils need to be educated the value of unity from primary school children to political leaders before thinking about devolution of power. If the government shares power now, it will be like giving bunch of flowers to monkeys.

      WHY DO I OPPOSE DEVOLUTION OF POWER FOR TAMILS
      EVOLUTION WILL LEAD TO DEVOLUTION, HOWEVER I HAVEN’T SEEN AN EVOLVED TAMIL LEADER
      Do you see evolution in Tamils who conducted the Asia’s longest brutal civil war for more than three decades? Do you see evolution in Tamils who assassinated far more leaders and intellectuals than any other terrorist organization in the world? The answer is no; therefore, forget about devolution of power for Tamils. Don’t even think about federalism. Tamils are still under the firm grip of foreign powers which transformed young Tamils as ruthless terrorists in the world. Tamils are still faithful to foreign powers. Therefore, giving power to Tamils is giving power to foreign powers. If we give power to Tamils surely we will lose our trump card as a country located in the strategic Indian Ocean.

      The Tamil leaders are not smart enough to find a solution. Therefore, Tamils won’t find a solution. It doesn’t matter whether Tamils cry to Indians or the Westerners; there won’t be a solution. You will get zero answer; if you multiply anything by zero. Likewise, Tamils will get zero results, if they continue to multiply their votes to elect foolish leaders. Tamils won’t go anywhere by avoiding smart Tamils; they will continue to go backward. Tamils have achieved nothing by conducting the Asia’s longest brutal civil war for three decades with the help of the foreign powers. Tamil leaders don’t learn, but blindly follow the foreign powers. Therefore, Tamil leaders need to be watched and guided carefully; instead of sharing power.

        A good analysis by a Tamil himself! Tamil Nadu has 60 million Tamils just 25 Km across Sri Lanka. Creating a federal Tamil state will be splitting Sri Lanka as soon after they will take a referendum to join with Tamil Nadu, effectively with India! NO WAY JOSE ! You stay in your basement as the PM of TGTE land and will due a natural death! We will try getting sane minded Tamils to help Sri Lanka develop into a state like Singapore did! The past is past! We need to look to a harmonious future with all Sri Lankans. People like Vigneswaran and TGTE are an hindrance to this process and need to be marginalized!

    Tamils have a language whether it is distinct or mixed with other South and North Indian languagues and Lnglish. Tamils have culture which relates to Indian culture. Tamil literature is South Indian. Tamils arts is south Indian. The example is Bharatha Natyam. It is not called at least Dravidean Natyam, Eezham natyam or something.

    Tamils while living all over the world can be a nation too depending on how they define a nation.

    The answer depends on the question. Just Garbage in and Garbage Out. So, the presstitute – journrlists should have asked why a separatist solution is recommnedded for Sinhale – North and not for Tamilnadu which is their motherland ?

    This lunatic fellow dream for a country while rotting inside in a Basement some where from Newyork. He Should have answered why he is dreaming for the separatist solution, Tamil homeland in Sinhale and not in Tamil motherland of South INDIA. Because, the question was incomplete.

    Are they not allowed even to dream about a separate nation else where except Sinhale-North ?.

      You do not seem to be aware that the correct name of the dance due to your inherent anti-Tamil nature. It is “PARATHA” and not “BARTHA”. The term paratha stands for PA- Pavam (facial expressions and gestures), RA – Rakam (rhyme)and THA – Thalam (rhythm of feet).

      In recent DNA studies, it has been proved that core genetic material of Sinhalese is South Indian and therefore motherland of Sinhalese is South India (Kerala and Tamil Nadu). Original people of Srilanka are Vedhdhas, thus Srilnka does not belong to Sinhalese.

      Srilanka and Tamil Nadu were contiguous land mass once and people who lived were similar as evidenced by discovery of urn burial sites and pottery in Norhern Srilanka similar to that found in Tamil Nadu. Also Veddhas are genetically same as Tamil Nadu Adivasis.

      Most Chingkalam’s are of South Indian origin. Around 50% of them very recent. Descended from low caste South Indian imports from Then Tamil Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Imported by the Dutch and the Portuguese as slave/indentured labourers. All your so called Sinhalese aristocracy both low country and Kandyan are again South Indian imports. Largely Tamil and some Telugu.
      Sinhala or Sinhale is a corrupt Pali version of one of the ancient Tamil names for the island. Chingkallam meaning the land of red or reddish brown soil or land of copper. Chepu (Copper) or Chikappu/Chemai( red) + Alam ( sliver of land). The land was called Chingkallam and the semi Tamil speaking native population were called Chingkallavar. Chingkallam became Sinhala in Pali

      The Vedda area closely related to the Adivasis of South India and their language was a very simple semi Tamil Dravidian dialect like Elu. They worshipped the Tamil god Lord Murugan. Valliamma the second consort of Lord Murugan was a Vedda beauty. She is from the deep south east of the island close to Kathirkammam and Okanda area in the souteh of eastern province. Lord Murugan fell in love with her beauty wooed and married her. This is the reason there are so many ancient prehistoric Murugan shrines around that area. The Tamilised Veddah of the east are the heirs to this ancient vedda heritage and all these ancient prehistoric Hindu shrines. Not you Sinhalese.
      Sinhalese still worship the Tamil god Lord Murugan as their war god. Lord Murugan is also called Velan in Tamil. Meaning the one with the spear. This is your distant pre Buddhist Hindu Tamil heritage of the Sinhalese. The Vijaya story and the so called north Indian origin was a myth created by the Buddhist monks who wrote Mahavamsa, to deliberately create a different origin for the indigenous Tamils and other tribes in the south of the island who converted to Buddhism and later evolved into Sinhalese by corrupting their local Tamil dialect with the Pali and Sanskrit of Buddhism

    PM Rudra is a heavy hitter unlike Vellala Sambandan.

    The kid is no match for him.

    Mr Pirahaparan didn’t take money to boycott the Election. despite Yahapalana suckers who have being pushing this lie since 2006..

    Any Referendum among Tamils now have to be confined to the North and the Vellalas in the rest of the Land.

    Because Moulavi Nadeer has ruled out joining the East and any possibility of his people becoming subservient to Sambandan.

    And stressed the fact that once is more than enough..

    Vellala Wiggy has ruled the Hindian Tamils out. in his submission to Batalanada’s CC.

    Mano Ganeshan will have to have his own if he wants one..

    Bit of good news for the LTTE asylum seekers who have the dosh . but can’t get Batalanda’s Duals.

        This PM Rudra is not just a Dosai Bellied Vellala who wants a Homeland to run from Cinnamon Gardens.

        With every human need now in Cyber Space , why a not the Greater Thamil Eelaamm too there.

        There are over 150 Million of them all over the Planet Earth. None of them have a place to call their own for some reason.

        Mr Pirahaparan tried his best to fix it.

        But the 21 Century Dutu Gamunu came along when Batalanda Ranil was about to help Mr Pirahaparan.

        Once the Vellalas get their Federal Homeland in old LTTE Territory, ,all those Thamilians can call it their home base, and keep doing what they are doing where ever they are doing it.

        None of those PM Rudra’s International Eelaam citizens are coming to live in the Home land, because it is too damn hot and humid to start., And more importantly there is no dole ,

        But the British Diaspora who have the Dosh with the greatest Thamil Baby Boomer concentration, may descend on to Megapolis to settle.

        And use the Homeland as a weekender to pay a visit.on the weekends to have a “FUN” and get a Blessing from a Poosari or Fr Emmanuel.

        With the ETCA in place , it will be a different story in Thamil Naad..

        Seeman and Nedurawan might open an Immigration Consultancy to settle Naduans in the Homeland.

    Mr Rudrakumaran,

    You strongly feel that “Tamils are entitled to the right to self-determination.” Let me go so far as to grant that such right has not been allowed to date. Let me further state that we ought to allow you that right. How many times?

    Brexit, and Scottish demands for Independence surely should make us realise the difficulties, and the problems caused by the “right” being exercised many times over. Many more “problems” could be piled on what has been briefly said.

    The crux of the matter is that you tried, and failed. If the Sinhalese feel that there is ANY chance of your succeeding, they will continue this occupation of the North by the military which you obviously find irksome.

    The quicker you (the lunatic fringe of Tamil Nationalism) convince your counterparts in the South (i.e. those who foolishly buy the arguments of the BBS through Joint Opposition to the Rajapaksas) that you have given up this pipe dream, the sooner rational Sinhalese will be able to ensure that you get progressively happier in a Unitary Sri Lanka. Actually, Federalism would normally be all right, but now it has become (irrationally!) a dirty word to the Sinhalese.

    Let’s get realistic!

    TGTE is becoming less relevant to the Tamil cause. They are not the appointed people of the Tamils on the ground in Sri Lanka – TNA is. TGTE can still play a role in shaping the destiny of the Tamil people in Sri Lanka only if they change their nostalgic attitude towards the LTTE, accept errors were committed by LTTE including the ethnic cleansing of Muslims from the North and accept that TNA is the primary mover and shaker for the Tamil people in Sri Lanka at present. TGTE must consult TNA on every matter and needs to act only as a proxy to TNA overseas and not as proxy to LTTE that is now totally defunct.

      I quite agree with you. The people who must decide on the future are Tamils living in Srilanka. They have got elected representatives to parliament and provincial councils and they will voice their opinion through them. Unfortunately we have diaspora groups such as TGTE on one extreme and others comprising of opportunists and persons of questionable integriry on the other extreme who are attempting to hijack this responsibility from Tamils in Srilanka. TGTE must only function as a pressure group and not as a policy making organisation. The days of forcing Tamil people at the point of a gun to follow the skewed thinking of LTTE blindly are gone, and if TGTE expects Tamils to listen to them without their guns, it is foolish. Similarly it is sad that government is promoting opportunists and those of questinable integrity among Tamil diaspora who have no standing among Tamils to form organisations and parade them as representatives of Tamils. Vast section of Tamil diaspora are self respecting, without any personal agenda and cannot be bought over, and do not want to associate with any of these fringe groups, remaining to be a silent majority.

        A sensible line for expat Tamils to take!

        And it’s now up to us, on the Sinhalese side to match that. Also, may I add, I’m in Sri Lanka, haven’t been out much, and intend living my life here.

        Only those who have committed themselves to living out their lives on this island have a RIGHT to demand, although the views of others may be very useful since they are quite likely more objective.

        Dr Gnana,

        Thank you for your comment. I agree with you but see two major problems here in Sri Lanka with our elected politicians.

        Quantity: it is impossible to make strong demands with less than 10 % of MPs and even they are divided with their own agendas. Our representatives fail to understand that they must co-operate with the majority to some extent instead of empty big rhetoric.

        Quality: we continue to elect mostly politicians who have a track record of not achieving anything, low qualifications and high opportunism.

        Quantity we cannot do anything about.

        We can try to elect representatives with better qualifications and ideas than the current ones to alter quality.

        I know very little about diaspora but believe that most Tamils abroad are pragmatic and peace loving.

    “Alice in Wonderland, how do you get to Wonderland?
    Over the hill or underland, or just behind the tree?
    When clouds go rolling by, they roll away and leave the sky.
    Where is the land beyond the eye, that people can not see, where can it be?
    Where do stars go, where is the crescent moon?
    They must be somewhere in the sunny afternoon.
    Alice in Wonderland, where is the path to Wonderland?
    Over the hill or here or there, I wonder where.” ( chorus from Movie ‘Alice in Wonderland’)

    In the case of the Tamils living ‘ IN’ Sri Lanka, Rudra’s ‘Wonderland’, would only be revisit to a ‘Hell’, they lived in for thirty plus years! We know what it was , how it was and where!

    He is a Saint Peter, sitting sitting at the ‘ Pearly Gates’ of New York City, consigning the Tamils and this country to ‘ Hell’. Oh, how much have we sinned!

    I do not agree with many of Mr. Rudrakumaran’s comments. Yes, he is comfortably sitting in his chair in the US. Classic example of an armchair expert or self-appointed expert. But, people in the south are still missing the point. There are reasons why people like Mr. Rudrakumaran appeared in the 1st place. Why the LTTE came to existence in the 1st place. There are so many factor why Tamils in SL are so disillusioned with the leadership in the South. When they feel like 2nd class citizens, when they feel so helpless, when they have been marginalized since 1956, when they have been slaughtered since 1983, when you look into many of these factors, don’t be surprised with attitude of people like Rudrakumaran.

      Sinhalese in the south too are disillusione with the leadership they have and had in the past. Why Tamils have got into a mess is because of the confrontational and racist attitudes Tamil leaderships have passed on to them. Tamil leaders dating back to the Ponna brothers, then Sunda, Chelva were racists and bigots who hated the Sinhalese and advocated racism. They have planted the seeds of racism and bigotry that lead to Tamil babarity and terrorism towards the Sinhalese. The Sinhalese had no option but to take the bull by the horns. The rest is history. Rudekumar, like Chelva is laughing at the Tamils he has fooled and they are emphatically and innately foolish lot!

      Tamil have been living in the island from prehistoric times and even if some of them arrived during the 2nd BC or around the 12Th century they are not thieves as they had arrived thousands of years ago and settled in the Tamil north and east. The ones who settled in the Sinhalese areas became Sinhalese and are the ancestors of a very large section of the present day Sinhalese.
      If immigrants who are also descended from various Indian immigrants mostly from South India. Aren’t they also thieves? DNA analysis proves that modern day Sinhalese share a 70% DNA with Indian Tamils in contrast indigenous Sri Lankan Tamils only share a 17% DNA in common with Indian Tamils. You can lie but DNA never lies.

    So the only way we can have our own country is if tamilnadu first has its own country.So the seeds of seperation has to be first sown in tamilnadu and the tree has to grow there first.Periyar tried dravidum and gave up due to the lack of interest.Dravidum should be revived and south india has to first seccede from the northern aryan india.otherwise we are wasting time with this eelam which will only end up in peelam as usual because india will sabotage it.We have to hope that like berexit south india will seccede one day.Then srilanka can also be included in dravidum.If those within dravidum want to become independent countries and then unite like the EU into a south indian union,then srilankan tamils also have a chance of getting eelam and becoming a member of SIU(South Indian Union).Unless we use the correct route it will be always peelam with a lot of shit on our heads.Baldies there of course will not clean the shit here,they will be talking eelam crap in aircond comfort.

    What they must do now is pressure india for maximum devolution for the tamils.Then they have to just patiently wait one day for a brexit style dravidum.It will come sure as night comes after day but when i don’t know.

      What has the 80 million Tamils in Tamil Nadu got to do with the 3 million Tamils in Eelam? Just because they speak variants of the same language and follow similar culture and religion does not mean the destiny of Eelam Tamils is intertwined with India or Tamils Nadu.
      Both these Tamil communities have evolved separately from ancient times and their history and destiny had always been separate. Tamils in Tamil Nadu are indigenous to India and Tamil Nadu and the Tamils in the island are indigenous to the island and Eelam.
      Just because the same German language and culture is spoken and followed in Germany and Austria does not mean Austrians are Germans or Germans Austrians. They may be similar people but have developed separate identities over the centuries, just like the French speaking Walloons in southern Belgiuum. Various forms of Arabic is spoken around 16 countries this does not mean that they are all one and the same.
      Just because with the arrival of Buddhism a new identity and language called Sinhalese developed by the gradual corruption of the native Tamil dialect with the Pali and Sanskrit in the southern parts of the island, that is only spoken in this region, does not mean Sinhalese are the true natives of the island and not the Eelam Tamils and negate the right of the Eelam Tamils from the north and east of the island to their ancient land, just because they did not change their religion or language. Or for the mere reason the same language is spoken in Tamil Nadu too.
      Tami/proto Dravidian l at one time was spoken throughout the Indian subcontinent, due to various invasions and settlement of various immigrants and the arrival of new religions and their influence, Tamil is now only spoken in Tamil Nadu and in the north and eastern parts of the island. The Eelam Tamils were never part of the India or the Tamil kingdoms that ruled Tamil Nadu but remained separate with a separate identity. Ruled by their own kings and chiefs.
      Your argument is very weak and poor

        real sivasankaran(not david blacker)

        cool story bro.from morning to evening you guys holler that 80 million tamils don’t have a country of their own,and now you say we three million are very distinct from the 77 million 17 nautical miles away,so distinct in fact that even if they consisting of 77 million don’t have a country of their own,that is okay as long as we 3 million have a country of our own.So now after we get eelam we can proudly say at last the 80 million tamils(albeit not all of them)have got a country of their own.

        i just checked the figures and find that if the 77 million across the palk strait get a country of their own then it will be the 20th largest country in the world population wise,even bigger than thailand,france and Uk and italy,so it will be a fully self sustainable country.

        what can we do if they are not interested.the smallest country in the world is nauru with 10000 people and tuvalu with 11000 in the pacific islands and they don’t want to amalgamate with fiji and lose their countries identity,but the tamilnadu which had at once time flourishing empires,let alone countries are quite happy to lose their country identity.Raja raja chola,rajendra chola and kulotunghe pandya must be turning over in their grave after working their ass off building empires and now seeing that a country for the tamils does not even exist.You are talking of your kingdom which was a vassal state of either the cholas or the pandyas while just look at these kingdoms here.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chola_dynasty#/media/File:Rajendra_map_new.svg

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandyan_dynasty#/media/File:Pandya_territories.png

        so you see if they are not interested in getting back their country we can’t get back our vassal kingdoms.After independence from the british they did not have good leader like jinnah or rajendra/rajaraja chola or kulothunghe pandya.Instead they got mesmerized by the celluloid characters and elected film stars one after another,some are not even tamil and coudn’t care a fart for regaining tamil glory and valour.

        so you see paul the tail can never wag the dog,however much it may try.We have to be patient till these film stars pack off and tamils start to elect proper leaders.You are a theoretician poring over historical records without taking into consideration current practical realities. With tamilnadu in smothering embrace from aryan india and quite happy to be like that without any self respect,there is no eelam,unless you want to try and try continously and get peelam.

        The current film star will make a big shout about eelam while trying to steal our fish and devastate the livelihoods of our fishermen with bottom trawlers.Oh where are you raja raja,rajendra,kulothonga,didn’t you leave any of your genes behind to bring the tamils back to glory.

    These dicks overseas will never allow the innocent tamil people living in sri lanka to have peace.There is a way this country can get over this, sinhalese, moors,burghers (whats left of them) must move to the north voluntarily, learn Tamil, and vociferously campaign against these harbingers of death,destruction and disunity.
    Once the majority learn Tamil , mix with them , will they realise what bastards their politicians are. Not that the politicians in colombo arent.

    The internet PM of Tamil Ealam has a nice gig sorted out for him. Well Tamil Homeland is in Tamil Nadu. This guy hides in the US knowing very well the RAW will abduct him the moment he is out of US. Did he say LTTE was a De Facto State Actor in a De facto Satate. Quite an irony isn’t it. Kudos to Batalanda Ranil who in 2002 said the the LTTE is invincible.

    this man in the picture is not a good manager.the moment i see a desk like this i know that.An efficient manager will always have a clean desk because he will be delegating the work after selecting able people to do it.he will have a clean desk and will only be supervising others ,not cluttering his desk like this,trying to show he has a lot of work and is a important fellow.

      Shankar:
      This argument is apparently wrong as it relates to Business hierarchy where
      enough paid subordinates are available. This man is leading a voluntary
      organisation / where work load cannot be delegated the same way. A wrong
      judgement of a man doing his best for his community in the short span we all
      have

        why has he got a ministerial team then.he should have delegated things on his desk to them.The table is like that of a worker,not manager.If a manager comes and sees a worker having a table like that he would get worried and ask him whether he requires extra assistance or overtime to clear it up.Not only his desk,see the things next to him.whether it is voluntary work or not the principle is the same.You shoudn’t volunteer to do things if you are biting off more than you can chew.What he needs is also a good secretary.he can ask a beautiful tamil woman to volunteer to achieve eelam and kill two birds with one stone while getting eelam for us get her to also ‘assist’ him.

    None of these Eelam campaigners among the Diaspora can be counted on to return to “Tamil Eelam” if there is one ever.
    They will not give up their comforts to toil in the country they want to create. It is easy for them to make all manner of declarations and employ a few to make noises here.

    Having seen how democratic life was under not just the LTTE but all Tamil militant movements, and having seen the performance of the NPC, I doubt if the dream of a separate state will ever materialize and doubt even more if even a significant minority of Tamils living here will want to be part of that dream.

    If the Sinhalese want to hurt the Tamil people they will let them have Tamil Eelam. It will not be long after for the Tamils to plead to reunite.

    He cna first form Eelam in Scarborough and in a small area in Bergen County New Jersey. Then he can approach TNadu and remind them of the greater Dravidian Nation that Tamil nationalists promoted in the 1960s. Then they can go claim parts of Malaysia, Burma and Indonesia and even go as far as Cambodia. Then he can relinquish his US citizenship, and donate all the wealth to build tube wells in Jaffna. Then he can fly down here, get a small house amongst the Dalit Tamils in VVT. VVT is where the great VP was born and was a superb freedom fighter and a brilliant guerilla leader. Being an upper caste man who used lower caste tamil to die fighting he must first live and share food and water with lover cast tamils.

    Then he must get an acre of land and plant Onions and Chillies which are sold to the South or buy a fishing boat and start smuggling heroin, sarees, keral ganja etc from India and smuggle fish and gold now back to India. Make some legitimate money the way the VVT boys do that way and he can then run for Municipalty office or Local Government office first.

    Then he can become the Ahmed Chalabi of Eelam.

    It is both Tamils and Sinhalese have to be liberated from tactful politicians. Most of the politicians has connections to Northwards. From International and North Hindian Influence. Liberate from the mirage of racism and superiority and insecurity. Value hard work, devotion, and human values.

    Pittasanna thambi should now be safe i hope. This Rudra man is dangerous for young boys. He is useless conman. He was Thalaivar’s sidekick not any political advisor, i know very well.
    what has this man done to Tamil eelam for last six years? nothing, living off Eelam contributions. Pottua Anna was livid against this humbug and the other traitor now with genocidal Sinhalayas, KP for not doing anything for Tamil Eelam during Eelam war 2009. Both got away because Pottu Anna was dead, otherwise you know what?
    One of those traitors cheated the money for the last ship of arms from Eritrea. Eelam struggle was lost because of those traitors.

      Ex-Thalaivar Bodyguard
      Your comment is disrespectful to Tamil Eelam and homophobic . I do not want to comment on the latter since it is disgusting. You should respect Mr Rudrakumar that he is now the leader of Tamil people, not only in Sri Lanka but also around the world. He has painstakingly rebuilt the Eelam struggle and soon patriotic Eelam Tamils should reap benefits. Any homophobic insult to the prime minister of Tamil Eelam and the national leader of Tamils is an insult for all Tamils. You should be ashamed for what you have written I doubt you are in the payroll of Sinhala Army

        is it self proclaimed leader or what.I thought the leader is wiggie.or is it sampanthan?no no it is jayalalitha,i think.

        the only way to know who is the leader is to see when the mouth opens on tamil issues whose words have the most impact on others.I may be wrong here but i think it will be in this order 1.jeya 2.wiggie 3.sam 4.rudra

      thalaivar’s bodyguard

      thalaivar told KP to go long ago and only when his arse was on fire in 2009 he frantically called him back.Shameless character getting rid of an employee and reappointing only when company closing down.Blame castro who wanted KP’s job.

      I don’t know about rudra,but he looks a like he must have had a good nap while thalaivar was getting fried up.Doesn’t look like a guy who will waste energy unnecessarily.Everybody had got sick of thalaivar because he only talks to pottu,castro and vaiko and that idiot thamilselvam a former barber.even if rudra or Kp gave any advice thalaivar will not listen because he wants only yes men who will just nod their head for every golden word coming from sungod mouth.This is what happens when the fat layers start accumulating and swelling the head,you start to think that pearls are dropping out of your mouth.

      There is only one person to blame for the debacle and that is your thalaivar.

    Petasanna is drowning himself in “If only this was done that would have happened” syndrome. Past is past.

    Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) is recognised by several nations, the UN and Tamil speaking people the world over as representing the aspirations of Eelam Tamils. Why did Mahinda and Gotabaya hate TGTE the way they did? This is an achievement. As to whether the aspirations are realistic or not, is a different matter.

    There were allegations that Mahinda bribed LTTE. Petasanna put this to Rudrakumaran. Surely the best person to answer is Mahinda himself. Why not try Petasanna?

    Petasanna quotes a Balasingham IMPLIED apology over the assassination of Neelan Thiruchelvam. Petasanna is disappointed that a direct apology has not come from Rudra.

    Petasanna is not in the least concerned that no one has apologised for the disappearance in 2006 of Prof S Raveendranath, the then VC Eastern University. As an academic Ravee was not second to Neelan.

    Petasanna is all out to resurrect and deify the late Neelan. The 1995 GL-Neelan package had absolutely no respect from Chandrika. So why the hell should Balasingham express guilt for missing the opportunity if he ever did? By the way today the born-again GL might apologise for drawing up the document.

    Petasanna has started writing what some section want to hear..
