The million-dollar question is why did ITAK
, being aware of the possible betrayal of Tamils, still support Ranil who is clearly a political Machiavellian fox?!
God then happened to overhear the talk of Dewi Itak
Silu Malik and Dewa Kakah Embung Mele.
Anandasangaree stated, "It was at the General Election of 2004, the fraudulently revived ITAK
, misusing the name of the TNA, issued its manifesto, openly declaring the LTTE as the National Leaders and also as sole Representatives of the Tamil People.
14 -- Tamil National Alliance has confirmed Emanuel Arnold of the Ilankai Tamil Arasu Kadchi (ITAK
) as their nominee for Mayor and Thurairasa Eesan of the TELO as the Deputy Mayor nominee for Jaffna Municipality.
He became a sharpener (naghahasa) of knives, itak
and other bladed weapons, a skill he learned suddenly.
The Elections Commission did not release a final tally of the results but in-house calculations showed that the UNP won 37 LG bodies and the Illankai Tamil Arasu Kachchi (ITAK
) bagged 28 Local Government bodies.
This group has amalgamated themselves with the Ilankai Thamil Arasu Kadchchi (ITAK
) and some of the members of this group are contesting in 33 seats allocated by the ITAK
in various local government bodies in the Northern Province in the 'House' symbol.
It is also learnt this group has a maximum a total of 50 former LTTE cadres and Venthan is the President, Kathir - Secretary and Thulasi, the media contact persons and this group has been presently absolved unceremoniously into the ITAK
Ilankai Tamil Arasu Kadchi (ITAK
) which leads the three party alliances, has suddenly become inactive and dormant, without any major political activities planned in all the eight districts of the North and East, where their candidates are contesting.
When asked about the differences of opinion that emerged between the Ilankai Tamil Arasu Kadchin(ITAK
) and Tamil Eelam Liberation Organization (TELO), Sri Kantha said, "In any democratic organizations, differences of opinion occurs, but majority views prevail.
It is learnt that ITAK
has not discussed this development of including the former LTTE militants with them and about giving them an opportunity to contest in the local government elections in the Northern Province with the constituent parties of TNA - TELO & PLOTE.
