Hartal in North and East today
By Naalir Jamaldeen
TNA Parliamentarian R. Sanakiyan said minority communities cannot be suppressed by injustice and he was ready to bring it to the notice of the international community.
In this regard he said those in the Northern and Eastern Provinces will engage in a hartal today (11) and added that they were looking forward to the support of everyone in both Provinces.
Sanakiyan urged all communities in the Northern and Eastern Provinces to support the hartal by showing their solidarity and closing shops and other entities against the continuous injustice meted out by the Government against minorities.
“Destroying the Mullivaikkal memorial in the University of Jaffna should be condemned. The Government is continously attacking the minorities. At this juncture we must show our solidarity and opposition.” Sanakiyan noted.
Speaking further, he said everyone should support the hartal as a collective voice of minority communities, taking the future of minorities into consideration sans ethnic barriers.
