Alleviating sufferings of the affected is a humanitarian gesture

- Virakesari Edutorial

(August 10, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) Reports reveal that as a result of the continuing military operations, a large number of people have become refugees and they don't receive adequate aids or basic facilities. Nobody is worried about the innocent Tamil people, who are facing crisis. Reports reveal that children, women, mothers, patients and elders have taken refuge under trees in jungles. Meanwhile, Minister Rambukwella, the defence spokesman, has reiterated that military efforts in Killinochchi and Mullaitheevu will continue and that the government is firm in its decision not to hold talks with the LTTE.

Meanwhile, Tamil National Alliance Trincomalee District Parliamentarian Thurairatnsingham has pointed out that students in Vanni sit the GCE A/L exams amidst fear and anxiety. He has requested the Education Minister should take special care in ensuring their safety.

Therefore, during the military operations, both sides should ensure the safety of the innocent people. Else, there will be a big human tragedy. Realizing all these, they need to think in terms of humanitarian acts to alleviate the sufferings of the affected people.
