SLDF: Be vigilant and terminate any LTTE appearance, even a mere semblance, on our sacred SL soil with Extreme Prejudice and Pronto!
LTTE’ camps in TN: PM’s statement based on Indian media reports
The Island, March 11, 2011, 9:13 pm
Responding to India’s contradiction of a statement attributed to Prime Minister D. M. Jayaratne, that the LTTE had an ongoing weapons training programme in Tamil Nadu, a senior government official told The Island on the condition of anonymity, that the Premier Jayaratne had gone by what was reported in the Indian media.
Premier Jayaratne had based his statement on Indian media reports dated Feb. 13, 2011 reproduced by local press the official said
The Indian High Commission in Colombo yesterday quoted Indian External Affairs Ministry spokesman Shri Vishnu Prakash as saying, "We have seen reports from Sri Lanka referring to the Sri Lankan Prime Minister’s statement alluding to the presence of LTTE training camps in Tamil Nadu. We categorically deny the existence of any such camps. The Government of Sri Lanka had also not taken up this issue with us. Such a reference is indeed unfortunate and we urge the Government of Sri Lanka to desist from reacting to speculative and uncorroborated reports."
A senior Sri Lankan Defence official told The Island that there hadn’t been specific information with regard to LTTE rump operating training facilities in Tamil Nadu, though Sri Lankan Intelligence Services continue to keep an eye on LTTE operations overseas.He said that the Indian press on Feb. 13 had carried a series of reports on LTTE operations in Tamil Nadu. The Hindu in its online edition on Feb. 13 said in a news item captioned ‘LTTE plans to target VVIPs during Assembly elections’ that the Central intelligence agencies had communicated specific inputs to the Tamil Nadu police that suspected LTTE cadre had conspired to carry out attacks on VVIPs during forthcoming Assembly elections."
The report quoted highly placed intelligence officers as having told The Hindu on Saturday (Feb. 12) that the Ministry of Home Affairs had sent alert messages that some LTTE cadres had arrived in Tamil Nadu and were engaged in a training programme at an "unknown location." They were in the process of procuring weapons and explosive substances to execute their plan.
"We received a few alert messages from Central intelligence agencies during the World Classical Tamil Conference held at Coimbatore and the visit of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to Chennai recently. Elaborate security arrangements were made and both events went incident-free. We intercepted a couple of clandestine boat operators who organized transport of Sri Lankan Tamil refugees to Australia," a senior police officer said.
Some probable targets of the LTTE, as perceived by the Central intelligence agencies, were the Prime Minister, National Security Advisor and the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, among others, The Hindu quoted sources as saying.
MHA (Ministry of Home Affairs) reports also indicated that the alleged LTTE training and process of procuring weapons was to have been completed by December 20 last year.
Days after India denies and tries to denigrate our PM (India's rhetoric which the unpatriotic Opposition – UNP and JVP - picks up and swallows hook line and sinker), the following appears in the mainstream Indian media!
Kerala tightens vigil on T.N. border to curb LTTE activities
KATTAPPANA (KERALA), March 11, 2011
The Intelligence Bureau is keeping a vigil on the movement of suspected persons in the border areas of Tamil Nadu after it received inputs that members of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam had reportedly tried to set up camps in the forest areas near Idukki district.
Highly placed sources said there were chances of setting up such camps in the forest areas and adjoining villages as it would give them cover, adding Sri Lankan Tamils could be easily identified in Tamil Nadu by their dialect.
The chances of using airports in Kerala for transit were monitored after Sri Lanka clamped down on the group's activities. The sources said the airports could be used by certain overseas sponsors of the group to keep channels of communication open.
Idukki's forest areas bordering Tamil Nadu in the Periyar Tiger Reserve (PTR) could be used by the cadres to regroup. It is estimated that about 1,000 Sri Lankan Tamils live in Pachakkanam Gavi inside the PTR where they had been repatriated as part of a rehabilitation pact signed by the then Sri Lankan Prime Minister Sirimavo Bandaranaike and her Indian counterpart Jawaharlal Nehru. They work in the cardamom plantations of the Kerala Forest Development Corporation Ltd.Intelligence sources said a large number of repatriates had migrated to Tamil Nadu and there was a remote chance of communication between them and members of the LTTE.
Clearly the Indians are playing their internal politics and do not gave damn about SL. Therefore, time to be vigilant GOSL and SLDF! Time for ruthless "nip-in-the-bud" measures otherwise we will be facing another 30 years of HORRIFIC TAMIL RACIST TERRORISM!
