In the backdrop of the series of Tamil resurgence events taking place in the North and East of Sri Lanka the LTTE and their Diaspora communities appear to have geared up for their unilateral declaration of Tamil State. Unlike the hasty and destitute unilateral declaration of Independent Tamil State by the then chief minister of North East Provinces, Mr. Varatharajaperumal (EPRLF), the LTTE and their supporters have meticulously weighed up and created this momentum in Sri Lanka and abroad.

The LTTE and their propagandists in the west believe that they have extensively exposed the Sinhala government's intrinsic reluctance and inability of finding a solution to the Tamil (LTTE) question by peaceful means, to the international community. The current political settings underpin the campaign for international understanding of the independent declaration. Tamil Diaspora, who is in the LTTE's folds, is vigorously engaged in materializing this agenda.

It is also expected that Prabaharan's Heroes day's speech in November may touch on the self-rule of the Tamils and the International approval thereto. In the interim, September 30th is also expected to be an important day for the Tamils in Jaffna as they converge to recite the declaration of Tigers after the Vaddukottai resolution.
