On May 18, 2009, the Sri Lankan government troops announced the death of the leader of the LTTE in Mullaivaikkal, located in the Mullaithivu district of the north. But now Pazha Nedumaran claims that LTTE Leader is alive still.
Is LTTE leader Alive?
On Monday, the leader of the Tamil Nationalist Movement, Pazha Nedumaran, claimed that the head of the banned Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), Velupillai Prabhakaran, was “healthy and well” and would soon “reveal a plan for Tamil race liberation.”
Nedumaran spoke at a press conference in Thanjavur and cited the changing global situation and Sri Lanka’s political crisis, including the removal of the Rajapaksa government, as having given the LTTE leader a new lease on life and encouraged him to come out of hiding.
As the Tamil President of the World Tamil Federation, Nedumaran also stated that it was time to put to rest “rumours” about the death of the Tamil Nationalist leader, Prabhakaran, also known as “Thamizh Desiya Thalaivar.”
How is the health of LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran?
LTTE chief Velupillai Prabhakaran is ‘healthy and fine’.According to Nedumaran, “Prabhakaran will soon announce a plan for the liberation of the Tamil race, and he calls for the support of all Tamils worldwide.”
Nedumaran revealed information about LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran’s health, stating that he was in good health and dispelling any doubts about his condition. He emphasized that all Tamil people should know that Prabhakaran is healthy and fine.
The creation of Tamil Eelam, an independent state in the north and east of Sri Lanka, is an aspiration of many Sri Lankan Tamils and the Tamil diaspora.
He urged the Indian government to take action to prevent China from consolidating its presence in Sri Lanka, citing the country’s investment schemes and portrayal of India as an enemy of Sri Lanka as evidence of China’s expanding influence in the region.
Nedumaran pointed out that during the LTTE’s time of strength, they never allowed any country opposed to India to enter Sri Lanka.
Nedumaran emphasized that the LTTE never asked for support from countries against India and fought against their involvement. He also stated that China’s presence in Sri Lanka was an attempt to depict India as an enemy.
Nedumaran expressed his concern about China’s expanding influence in the Indian Ocean.
He called on the Indian government to take necessary measures to counter China’s growing presence.
