The LTTE terrorism no longer exists in the country. We have annihilated terrorism. What remains is the development of areas that once was under the jungle law of terrorists for over 30 years. Lakhs of people who lived as prisoners of these terrorists now enjoy democratic freedom. No room will be left for terrorism to raise its head. Our country is now marching towards development and enjoying unity, the Prime Minister said.
