A group of residents at Killinochchi engaged in an agitation at Killinochchi Depot Junction yesterday (19th) protesting against a statement made by TNA Parliamentarian S. Sridharan to the media insulting the estate Tamil community.
The agitators stated they oppose the programme carried out by the Parliamentarian to divide the Tamil community. They say they would not hesitate to take stern action if the parliamentarian doesn’t tender a public apology.
The agitators say the parliamentarian used unsuitable words regarding estate Tamil community when he had an interview with a group of journalists.
When inquired Parliamentarian Sridharan said if the journalists says he had made the statement publicly he was prepared to tender a public apology.
