COLOMBO, DEC. 2. The Eelam National Democratic Liberation Front (ENDLF) has charged the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) with abducting its general secretary, P. Rajaratnam (Mano Master).
According to the ENDLF, Mr. Rajaratnam who is also the coordinator of a fledgling political formation initiated by the ENDLF along with the LTTE's former Special Commander, `Col.' Karuna' Tamileela Makkal Viduthalai Pulikal (TMVP) had gone to "find a suitable place for his party office" here on November 25 "and did not return since then," a report in the TMVP website said today.
The ENDLF, which was dormant for over a decade, recently teamed up with `Col.' Karuna to form the Tamileela Iykkiya Viduthalai Munnani.
Mr. Rajaratnam, who was a Minister in the North-East Provincial Council until its dissolution in 1990, lived in Chennai and recently "decided to re-enter" Sri Lankan politics.
Though Mr. Rajaratnam went missing since November 25, there is no clear indication on his whereabouts.
The TamilNet website, earlier this week, reported that his mother had complained that he was "abducted" by supporters of `Col.' Karuna.
The ENDLF said Mr. Rajaratnam's mother wanted the LTTE to release him and "honour the terms and conditions of the ceasefire agreement."
