Jaffna Minister of Parliament Gajendrakumar  Ponnambalam today stated that he and the Tamil National People’s Front condemns the move of the Terrorism Investigation Division to arrest Jaffna Municipal Council Mayor Vishwalingam Maniwannan.

He called for the immediate release of the mayor and stated that this was an act of racism.
