Tamil National Alliance Jaffna district Parliamentarian N. Raviraj has disclosed that while even the LTTE leader Prabhakaran's children live a comfortable life abroad, poor Tamil children have to wait in long queues all day without even going to school to get a piece of bread.

"This is the sad plight that has befallen thousands of children living in the country's North. While children of bigwigs live a plush comfortable life on foreign soil, including the children of LTTE leader Prabhakaran," he said.

He also claimed that despite continuous assurances by the government, there has been a major food shortage in Jaffna since last month.

"Children are the worst affected. Apart from the shortage of food, they are unable to even go to school, because in a desperate search for food, parents send their children to stand in long queues to try and get even a loaf of bread for their survival," he said.
