National Integration Minister Vinayagamurthi Muralitharan alias Karuna Amman said yesterday that efforts by the remaining LTTE leaders overseas to create a provisional transnational government would not succeed.
“What Kumaran Pathmanadan and the other leaders are trying to do will only be a dream. We will not allow them to do so and neither will the international community,” LTTE’s former eastern commander Mr. Muralitheran told those who had gathered for the opening of a branch of the Foreign Employment Bureau in Batticaloa.
He said the employment bureau office would help the eastern civilians, who wished to travel overseas for employment.
Mr. Muralitharan expressed the hope that the Tamil Diaspora would help the Sri Lankan government to develop the country.
“Then we can resettle the displaced people in their native places without much difficulty,” he said.
When asked whether there was some misunderstanding between Eastern Province Chief Minister Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan and himself, Mr. Muralitharan said politically they were on different sides.
He said he hoped the TMVP would assist the officials’ of the employment bureau to conduct awareness programmes for people in the East.
Chief Minister Chandrakanthan and several senior officials of the bureau attended the opening ceremony.
