The United National Party (UNP) today said, the Government had no right to question the UNP’s relationship with the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) because the Government was directly interacting with former LTTE personnel without taking legal action against them.

“TNA is a political party in the Parliament and also represents the party collective of ‘Vipakshaya Virodaya’ with UNP. But the Government is interacting with personnel from a banned terrorist group without taking legal action against them. It has no ethical right to question our engagement with the TNA,” UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake told a news conference.

He accused the Government of deploying former LTTE members, in the United National Freedom Alliance (UPFA), for its political campaign.     

Mr. Attanayake said the Government pre-election surveys indicated that the UNP and other opposition parties were leading in the Provincial Council elections. Therefore the Government was attempting to sabotage the UNP’s political campaign.

“The government is afraid of losing the Provincial Council elections due to the results of a survey carried out by its officers. Therefore the Government was trying to sabotage the UNP’s political campaign by misusing Government properties and deploying security forces in UPFA political campaigns,” he said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    On one way Tissa Attanayake is right, the Govt. should have punished the LTTE'ers they are hanging out with before pointing fingers at others. But that does not mean UNP has to hang out with TNA. Anyway, any party wins God Bless Sri Lanka and the poor Sri Lankans.

    UNP does not understand the "Chanda Gundu" talks of the government at the final stage of Northern election propaganda.

    UNP is holding hands with violent, still talking separation and arms struggle and Sinhalese hating TNA. On the other hand Govt is with LTTE guys who now denounced and renounced violence and separation and treating Sinhala majority as their blood brothers. So these idiots have to understand the difference between the two, Can't they comprehend that simple logic?

    Small issue: Former LTTErs at the empathy of government, but UNP is at the empathy of TNA

    Yes, UNP has right to build up relationship with TNA but dont do same thing whiach was happend in past like MOU with LTTE becouse that is the main reason to coused backward UNP in Sri Lankan poitics. Try to protect Sri Lankan identity with maximum level coaliation with southern political parties as well.

    The worse thing in the South Asian Politics is not speaking about what is the particular party's (Ruling or Opposition) vision with regard to the Country. Only thing the Politicians are doing is the Mud slinging to each other. We are spending a lot tax payers money to run the parliament and out put is nil. This is the sad story of our country.
