Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Parliamentarian Dharmalingam Siddharthan believes that permitting the Tamils in the North or East to commemorate their dead will not lead to another armed struggle or be viewed as encouraging separatism. In an interview with The Sunday Leader he said one man’s terrorist is another man’s liberation fighter. He believes the relatives of the dead should at least have the right to mourn the death of their loved ones.

He lamented that the crime rate in the North is rising and he also feels there is a breakdown of family values and traditions among the people. He said while the military was not directly involved in aiding certain gangs, some individuals encourage and support these youth gangs. Following are excerpts of the interview;

News: The Rise and ‘Fall’ of Karuna
Posted Date: 05/12/2016 (Monday)
Vinayagamurthi Muralitharan alias Karuna Amman, once a terrifying warmonger who led the Tamil Tigers (LTTE) of the Eastern Province and later enjoyed an 'exotic' and powerful life with the Rajapaksas, has been remanded till 7 December 2016. Karuna was arrested on the charge of misusing a Rs 80 million worth State vehicle. He is one among many who have been arrested by the current government for misusing State assets. Many are bewildered over Karuna's arrest and the reason for his arrest, which is considered a minor matter because this is a man who had committed cold-blooded murders while he was a LTTE militant, irrespective of caste, creed or race.

News: New Police structure and Emergency Laws Constitutional Assembly: Report of the Police, Law and Order Subcommittee
Posted Date: 30/11/2016 (Wednesday)
Police powers were among the most contentious topics in the whole devolution debate and the provisions of the 13th Amendment in this connection were never implemented by any government over the past three decades, because it would have rendered the country ungovernable. Now however, the Police Law and Order Subcommittee proposes to actually carry out what no previous government even contemplated. This Subcommittee of the Constitutional Assembly has proposed that the Police Ordinance be replaced with a completely new Police Act and that changes be made to the emergency laws – which would take the provincial police and law and order powers even beyond what was envisaged in the 13th Amendment
