COLOMBO(News 1st) – The Tamil Eelam Liberation Organization also known as TELO which was a part of the TNA was detached from the party today.
Attorney-at-Law N. Srikantha, General Secretary of the TELO:
“Today we started the Tamil National Party. We started this party after careful discussions held to create a powerful, honest, focused political leadership.
We believe that we can form an alliance with the Tamil People’s Alliance and the EPRLF formed by the former Chief Minister of the Northern Province, C. V. Vigneswaran and introduce a new leadership for the Tamil people of this country.”
With part of the Tamil Eelam Liberation Organization leaving the party and the TNA, only two parties remain in the Tamil National Alliance.
That is Illankai Tamil Arasu Kachchi and PLOTE.
In addition to that, the faction of Selvam Adekkalanadan of the Tamil Eelam Liberation Organization remains in the party as well.
The people point out that the TNA who did not involve in the people’s problems was keen enough to take money from projects like Gamperaliya. The people point out that the same enthusiasm was not there to release lands and political prisoners. Even the lands in the North occupied by the Army were released by former President Maithripala Sirisena.
Meanwhile, these views were expressed by Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan in Batticaloa today regarding the TELO’s decision to leave TNA.
Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan, Leader of the Tamil United Freedom Party:
“The TNA is losing power today. Part by part is being dismantled from the party. They are facing many political issues. They committed many mistakes in the past.
They did not reap the benefits by joining the former government. They did not provide jobs to the unemployed. I have not even seen them speaking about that in Parliament.”
Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan also expressed his views about the MCC Compact.
Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan noted that they are not ready to accept the MCC agreement and that the minister Dullas Alahapperuma has claimed that the incumbent government will not sign this agreement.
