* Sri Lanka Tamil party stresses the need for international assistance to address grievances
Fri, Mar 14, 2014, 07:41 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 14, Colombo: Parliamentarian of Sri Lanka's major Tamil political party, the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Sivashakthi Anandan said that help from the international community is needed to address grievances of the people in the North and East as the real grievances of the Tamil people have not been addressed.

Speaking at an event in Nedunkerni, the Vanni District Parliamentarian explained that the nonviolent struggle of the Tamil people converted to an armed struggle due to the failure in addressing the issues faced by the Tamil community.

Even after the arm struggle was defeated, the grievances have not been addressed, the MP noted.

According to Anandan, the people are facing many issues in the North like losing their lands, militarization of the area and cases of missing persons and persons being held as political prisoners.

He added that solutions to these issues could be found only with the help of the international community.
