  2. Brief Summary of LTTE • The LTTE is a Tamil Nationalist organization seeking a homeland for the Tamil people of Sri Lanka. • Leader: Velupillai Prabhakaran • The mother land of Tamils, their nationalism, their right to self-rule should all be formally accepted. (Tamil Makkalin Thaayagam, desiyam, tannaatchi urimai yenbana angeegarikka pada vendum) • The legitimacy of the LTTE is on a steep decline. Political support from India was cut with the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi.

Social work is very limited. • The LTTE operates a parastatal organization in the Tamil areas replete with taxation, a judiciary, and security forces. • The LTTE has a separate banking system and manages funds in the areas it controls. • Tamil areas in Sri Lanka under LTTE hegemony. • The LTTE has no formal political party, but openly supports the “Illankai Tamil Arasu Kachchi” or Tamil National Alliance.
