A Tamil National Alliance MP has promised to build statues to honour the sacrificies of Maaveerar, fallen LTTE cadres, in his Mullaitivu constituency.
TNA MP Dr Sivamohan spoke on Monday at the unveiling ceremony of a new statue of Thiruvalluvar - the Sangam era Tamil poet and philosopher - built under his budget in his constituency of Puthukudiyiruppu.
"No matter what obstacles lie in the future of my political journey, I will build statues for the Maaveerar who fell for us," he said.
