Colombo, 20 August, (Asiantribune.com):

Secretary General of the Tamil United Liberation Front, Mr. V. V.Anandasangaree has pledged that very soon he will come out with facts that are up to now not taken seriously, more by the Tamil community.

He says, "When the truth comes to light no one can save us. The media persons should take up this matter seriously and if in disagreement on any matter can have the liberty to criticize or give the correct version. “

Mr. V.Anandasangaree has stated that Important matters that are brought to light should be given due publicity without causing insult to the person or persons concerned, by not publishing.

He in a statement has stated, I now start with a very serious misuse of the term TNA by a Political party ignoring the others in the alliance.

In his premonitory note said, If this is not stopped forthwith the country will face the music.”

Mr. Anandasangaree has appealed to the proprietors of various media both print and electronic, their political analysts, reporters and journalists and has said, Important matters that are brought to light should be given due publicity without causing insult to the person or persons concerned, by not publishing””.

He continues -

I hope I don’t need any introduction to most of you. A few of you may not know me and some may have some prejudices against me for some unknown reasons. These days the main reason for such prejudices is based on the political views of the parties concerned. I am in politics for well over 55 years and is very much acquainted with most politicians belonging to various political parties.

I had been a member initially of the Lanka Sama Samaja Party (LSSP) and later joined the All Ceylon Tamil Congress (ACTC) led by the late Hon G.G.Ponnambalam and got elected to represent the Killinochchi electorate. The ACTC got merged with the Federal Party of the late Hon.S.J.V.Chelvanayagam to form the Tamil United Liberation Front on 14th May, 1972 (TULF). I am now serving as its Secretary General.

I am strongly of the view that the media is the watchdog of the Constitution and that it has the sacred duty to protect the Democratic Rights of the people. As such I expect every person involved with the media to be fair and very cautious in their reports about various personalities, politicians in particular. I am one who had been victimized very badly due to unfair and untrue reports about my political activities. For what I did for my country and my people my position should have been very much different from what I am today.

It is not my intention, either to identify or condemn an individual or accuse any organization for unjustly pulling me down from the ladder. Merciless criticism and false reports had caused enough damage to my political carrier and helped some others to thrive. It is a pity that I am punished for my honesty. I plead with everyone involved in the media to hold the scales evenly.

As I mentioned earlier, responsible persons in each media has a role to play which is very sacred in a democratic society. Any negligence will only result in causing damage to the organization in the future.

The country is suffering tremendously in various ways and more particularly in politics. When the country faces big crises, at that time no one will be there to save the country.

Very soon I will come out with facts that are up to now not taken seriously, more by the Tamil community. When the truth comes to light no one can save us. The media persons should take up this matter seriously and if in disagreement on any matter can have the liberty to criticize or give the correct version.
