People representing civil society organizations, Government servants, widows and those subjected to LTTE harassment aired their experiences during the final stage of war before the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission when it met at the Pooneryn Divisional Secretariat.
Many people said they led a prosperous life before the LTTE chased them to Vishwamadu and Pudumathalan, when the forces were advancing towards Pooneryn. Pooneryn Agricultural officer Nadarajah Sundaramurthi said Tamil political parties are responsible for the Tamil people’s plight. He also said Tamil politicians, including organizations which took to arms should be punished for their short-sighted principles which resulted in creating problems in the country.
