article imageFormer Sri Lankan MP M.K. Eelaventhan on politics in Sri Lanka Special

By Andrew Moran     Jul 27, 2010 in World
Toronto - At each rally, demonstration, political event and memorial, elderly Tamils provide their insights, experiences and analysis into the history of Sri Lanka. DigitalJournal.com caught up with former Sri Lankan Member of Parliament M.K. Eeleaventhan.
At the Black July commemoration at Queen’s Park in downtown Toronto, Digital Journal had the opportunity to speak with former Sri Lankan Tamil National Alliance Member of Parliament M.K. Eelaventhan, who describes himself as a “wise, traveled old man.”
In the interview, Eelaventhan discussed the political situation in Sri Lanka, a historical recount between Sri Lanka and other nations in the region, his personal experiences with the government and his encounters with numerous public officials in Canada, Sri Lanka, South Africa, India and elsewhere.
“All these people do sympathize with us but their final conclusion is that they’re thinking of their own geopolitical interests, each country. No country’s foreign policy is based on morality, there’s only permanent interests.”
The former President of the Tamil Eelam Depression Fund has worked for the Central Bank of Sri Lanka, has been deported from India twice, personally experienced the atrocities in Sri Lanka throughout the 20th century and is now a member of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE).
Please see the video for an in-depth interview with Mr. Eelaventhan.
