Hartal disrupts North-East region

A hartal was launched in the North- East region today (28) condemning the Government’s actions preventing the commemoration of those killed during the war.

The hartal in Jaffna, spearheaded by several Tamil parties including the ITAK, is reportedly being staged to protest against the Government’s actions to prevent the rights of Tamils to remember those who had lost their lives in the war.

Private bus unions and trade unions have also backed the hartal. Accordingly, all shops, except for eateries and pharmacies are closed in Jaffna district, reports say. And all private buses have refrained from operating.
