The second Ezhuga Thamizh (Tamils Arise) event was held in Batticaloa last Friday (10) with the participation of Northern Province Chief Minister CV Wigneswaran.

Wigneswaran addressing the event accused the Government of misleading Tamil National Alliance (TNA) leader R. Sampanthan on a political solution for the Tamils.

According to Wigneswaran, the Government had earlier promised  Sampanthan that a solution would be reached by last year but had failed to keep its promises.

He said the Government was now attempting to mislead the international community at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UN HRC) in Geneva by asking for more time to address allegations related to the war.

The first Ezhuga Thamizh event was held in Jaffna in September last year.
