Varadharaja Perumal in town
Former Chief Minister of Eastern Province and member of EPRLF, Varadharaja Perumal who became a controversial figure after he unilaterally declared a state of Eelam in 1989, had arrived in Sri Lanka on Sunday evening.
 
Though a Tamil website reported that he was to go to Jaffna for election campaign, EPRLF sources said he had come to Sri Lanka to look at the situation in the country and is scheduled to participate in several seminars and workshops. He is expected to go to Jaffna in a few days time.
 
Asked whether he is planning to meet President Mahinda Rajapaksa, the sources said they are not aware whether such a meeting is going to take place or not.
 
Mr. Perumal who fled to India when the North Eastern Provincial Council was dissolved after he unilaterally declared Eelam in 1989 had come several times to Sri Lanka. He was residing in Orissa earlier and then moved to Delhi.
