TNA's NPC member M.K.Sivajilingam taking a different stance from that of the party said that he would ask people to vote for a candidate of their choice at the forthcoming presidential election.
Mr. Sivajilingam said the TNA should not have openly backed any particular candidate.
"There are several other NPC members who are not ready to accept the TNA stance to support a particular candidate. Actually, we should not have announced anything of that sort. People should be left to make their decision," he said.
TNA Leader R. Sampanthan said he instructed his deputy Mavai Senathirajah to take action against these members who have criticized the decision in public. "I asked Mr. Senathirajah to take into it. He is in Jaffna. I think he has spoken to these members on this matter. We have 30 members and only two or three have taken such a position. But we should not allow that to happen,: Mr. Sampanthan said.
Earlier, TNA’s NPC member Ananthi Sasitharan has defied the party's decision to support opposition common candidate Maithripala Sirisena and said she would not support either of the two main candidates.(Kelum Bandara)

Mr. Sivajilingam is trying to be the Leader of TNA, he is an opportunist to release this statement. Who cares for him.... North

This man Sivaji is a great actor than the great film star "Late Sivaji". He has very close links with LTTE.

Most respected Mr. Kandiiah, I respect you Sir for expressing the truth point blankly. Every Tamil who lives either in the North, East or in Colombo should clearly understand that LTTE destroyed their own community and destroyed them. Sivajilingam like people are settle down in UK with their families enjoying luxury life, but show that they are the savers of the Tamils, bull shit....

Sivajilingam should understand one thing very clearly. It was his LTTE who forced the Tamil people in the 2005 Presidential election. It was his LTTE who did lot of damage to the Tamils. I request Sivajilingam to keep his big mouth shout and allow Tamils to decide what they want.

If the people voted TNA to power, they have the power to tell the people what they may do. They should lead them. In any case, the people will vote for MS.

I think that most people including the minorities have already made up their minds. The opinions of their leaders are only academic.

This is a another drama. Gvt highlight an agreement between TNA and the common candidate and this a plan to mislead the people to say no any such agreement between them.
