The Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) today urged the government to ban the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) in order to ensure democracy in Sri Lanka.
Addressing a media briefing, PHU General Secretary Udaya Gammanpila said the TNA was the main opposition of Parliament, and that was the gravest misfortune of the nation.
“The TNA has direct links with the LTTE. Earlier, the TNA virtually functioned as the political wing of the LTTE. The former LTTEers voted for the TNA and ensured its victory in the last elections and the TNA also stands for the rights of the LLTEers,” he added.
Referring to a statement made by President Maithripala Sirisena who called TNA Leader R. Sampanthan best Tamil leader in Sri Lanka' s political history, Mr. Gammanpila said it was because Mr. Sampanthan supported government’s each and every decision.
He said Mr. Sampanthan was the one and only opposition leader in world history who had voted along with the government for the Budget without proposing a single amendment.
“Mr. Sampanthan stand bias to the government. He has done this several times. Therefore, it is obvious that he should be the best opposition leader to the government,” he added.

You all are the same. There is no difference between you lot and TNA. How long do you think you can do politics in the name of minority. Your boss, I mean Mahinda Rajapakse, lost the election because of the minority vote. Today sadly Tamils and the Muslims make the decision who rule Sri Lanka. Mahinda knows very well.

What else have you and your boss Ali Baba have to sell to the citizens of this country other than threats, racism, religion and western agenda's which are products of bankrupt sick black-listed politician crooks.

MR had the best opportunity to do it as TNA openly supported the LTTE which was a banned organisation and was on a killing spree of civilians and in a war with a legitimate government
