Eelam: TN students to surrender their voter ID cards

25-March-2013

About 150 students from around 7 colleges in Cuddalore district plan to meet the District Collector R Kirlosh Kumar and surrender their voter ID cards to protest against the central government’s Sri Lankan policy.

Students are continuing their pro-Eelam protest in Tamil Nadu

T Maran, a district coordinator of ‘Students’ Federation for Free Eelam,’ said their protest was to draw attention to the killings of over 600 Tamil fishermen by the Sri Lankan navy, and India’s military support to Colombo.

“The Indian government has taken up the matter at the highest level with the Italian government for the killing of two Kerala fishermen by the Italian marines. But New Delhi has not cared about the killings of 600 Tamil Nadu fishermen, who have been shot dead by Sri Lankan navy,” said Maran.

The Students’ Federation for Free Eelam had earlier announced that it would launch a non-cooperation movement against the government of India to press its demand for India’s support for formation of an independent Tamil Eelam. – TWL Bureau
