M.K Shivajilingham, an outspoken member of the Northern Provincial Council and the Tamil National Alliance (TNA), called on the Sri Lankan government to lift the ban imposed on 15 Tamil diaspora organisations, reported Colombo Page.
Arguing that the diaspora organisations had not been involved in any illegal or terrorist activities, Mr. Shivajilingham pointed out that the government had failed to provide evidence of such activities.
Speaking to the Tamil Guardian earlier this week, Mr. Shivajilingham said,
