JAFFNA & COLOMBO EXPLODES INTO REVELRIES AS NEWS BROKE

[Updated :: 2009-05-19 19:33:52 Hours || Home]
 


ORDINARY JAFFNA civilians on hearing the fate that befell LTTE terrorist leader, PRABHAKARAN exploded into happiness and delight throughout Tuesday (19) after taking to main streets with waving National flags.
 
     As the news cracked, civilians went on lighting fire crackers and sounding vehicle horns as more and more people joined the revelers. Those civilians in their hundreds wended their way across the main streets. The spontaneous burst of the public is reflective of the anger and revulsion of the JAFFNA public.
 
     Meanwhile, heavy traffic congestions in major cities were reported across the country as beaming and flag-waving people of all ethnicities thronged the streets. In many places, the public were entertained to milk rice and sweet meats as they moved on. Similarly, hundreds of young people revelled in music playing drums and other instruments with National flags fluttering atop, many of their vehicles. Reports said that some people had to get down fire crackers from very distant areas spending much money.
