Lalins Column: Buglers then, fiddlers now

Then they were the TNA. Now they are also ITAK. Then it was about the racial divide. Now is it about religion too? Then it was being a LTTE mouth piece for Eelam. Now it is about their own survival, being UNP toads and praying for federalism. Then the North voted for them. Now some of them are providing shooting practice for the same voters.

Lalin’s Column: The Jaffna Corporals

Then they were the TNA. Now they are ITAK. Then it was about Tamils being victimized. Now is it about religion too. Then it was being a LTTE propaganda unit. Now it is about being the darlings of the ‘International order’ (of the USA) and the UNP. Then the North voted for them. Now some of them are providing shooting practice for the same voters. They talked about reconciliation then but are following policies that will surely divide the people again. Were they at any time sincere representatives of the Tamils or did they mislead them and pursue their personal interests?
