The count down has begun for “ Great Heroes Day” (GHD) on November 27th. Rival factions of the overseas Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam(LTTE)competing with each other to commemorate the event in Western countries where substantial concentrations of Sri Lankan Tamils are prevalent. November 27th falls on a Sunday this year. This has reinforced the efforts of both factions as the chances of drawing massive crowds is greater because of Sunday being a holiday.In a scenario similar to a market place both factions are doing their best to ensure that the Great Heroes Day(GHD)events organized by them get the highest number of attendees. The LTTE faction led by Perinpanayagam Sivaparan alias Nediyavan has the advantage of being in control of the existing overseas tiger structures known as “kattamaippu”.Utilising those structures the Nediyavan faction is going ahead with the usual agenda of conducting the event in different western cities.However it is not smooth sailing for Nediyavan’s mainstream LTTE as there is a rival contender for the crown. The faction led by Segarampillai Vinayagamoorthy alias Vinayagam has jumped into the fray this year. The Vinayagam faction is also planning to stage “Great Heroes Day”(GHD)events in some Western countries.[25 November 2011, 5:11 p] The count down has begun for “ Great Heroes Day” (GHD) on November 27th.
