In the wake of three upcountry Tamil parties deciding to join hands with the United National Party (UNP), Arumugam Thondaman-led Ceylon Workers Congress (CWC) said today it would continue as an ally of the United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA).

The Democratic People's Front (DPF), the National Union of Workers (NUW) and Upcountry People's Front (UPF) had earlier formed an alliance and decided to contest the election under the elephant symbol of the UNP.

CWC Leader Muttu Sivalingam told Daily Mirror his party would stick with the UPFA.

"We will announce our strategy when the election is declared. But as of now we have decided to stick with the UPFA," he said.

When asked about the new three-party alliance representing estate Tamils, he said ,"This is nothing new. They were together earlier. They have announced it as an alliance now. There is actually nothing new about it," he said. (KB)

    Arumugam Thondaman is a deflated and spent force. The hill country workers in hordes have distanced themselves from the CWC. It will do good to the UNP not to have anything to do with this party.
