Minister A.L.M. Athaullah has disclosed of a secret pact between Muslim Congress Leader Rauff Hakeem and tiger leader Velupillai Prabhakaran to re-merge the North and East.
The Minister pointed out that Rauff Hakeem is already drawing up plans in collaboration with the UNP for this purpose. He was addressing a propaganda rally in support of A.L.M. Hisbullah who is contesting the Provincial Council from the Freedom Alliance. The meeting was organised at Kathankudy. Mr. Ahtaulla observed that the Eastern Chief Minister should be an individual who is dedicated to the development of the Province and maintains the East as a separate Province. He added that the Muslims should be devoted to defeating Rauff Hakeem who is under the authority of Prabhakaran and the Norwegian state.
