Pongu Thamil memorial at Jaffna University Featured

A memorial containing the Pongu Thamil declaration that calls for the recognition of the self-determination rights of Tamils was unveiled at the Jaffna University yesterday (17).

The university’s students union built the memorial and its opening by vice chancellor R. Vigneswaran was attended by the teachers and students.

The Pongu Thamil declaration was first made at the same venue on 17 January 2001, and an inscription of it was built there four years later.

A parallel cultural event was attended by Tamil politicians including Sivagnanam Sridharan and M.K. Sivajilingam.

Sivajilingam said he only attended the cultural event.
