In recent times the Tamil Speaking Peoples, the Tamils and Muslims, have increasingly realized the pressing need for such unity and the leaderships have constructively worked together to further this objective. We are committed to further consolidating and strengthening this unity. We are also committed to the early and planned resettlement in the North of all the Muslim people who have been displaced. The lives of our People must be rebuilt while maintaining our distinct identity as a People. We must also regain our political rights as a People. We therefore appeal to the Tamil Speaking Peoples to courageously stand up and demonstrate their unity at this General Election by voting for the Tamil National Alliance contesting under the name of Ilankai Thamil Arasu Kadchi and its ‘House’ symbol.
