The Tamil National People’s Front moved their planned Mullivaikal remembrance event to Vaddamarachi East after a court order banned the organisation from leading commemoration events at Mullivaikal.
The event was held at the Vembadi Murugan temple where people lit candles of remembrance and lay flowers paying respects to those that had died.
The president of the TNPF Gajendrakumar Ponnamballam and event organiser Mannivannan addressed those that attended the remembrance ceremony.
