Eelamist Movement Rises Again in the North?

Dinasena Ratugamage, in Island, 15 August 2020, where the title is “Wiggy makes vow before LTTE memorial”

Newly elected TMTK (Thamil Makkal Thesiya Kuttani) MP C.V. Wigneswaran, on Thursday (13), vowed before the LTTE memorial at Mullivaikkal that he would fulfill the aspirations of the Tamil people.

 The retired Supreme Court justice and former Northern Province Chief Minister said that he wanted to make a commitment at Mulliwaikkal before taking oaths as a member of parliament on August 20. The ex-Chief Minister was accompanied by former TNA MP M. K. Sivajilingam. Sivajilingam failed  in his attempt to return to parliament on the TMTK ticket.
