SLFP airs LTTE songs at Jaffna rally in bid to win Tamil voters

The president's Sri Lankan Freedom Party aired Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) songs at its campaign rally in Jaffna on Friday in a bid to win over Tamil voters. 

The SLFP's airing of the songs comes despite the ongoing arrest and detention of Tamils under the draconian Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) who are accused of shared LTTE related photos and other materials. 

Parties across the political spectrum contesting in the North-East have frequently employed Tamil nationalist or LTTE related imagery within their campaigning in order win over Tamil voters.
