EPRLF: TNA unity hangs in balance in House

19 June 2017 04:28 am - 7     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Keeping the unity among the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) could not be sustained among the allies, even in Parliament, unless the No-Confidence Motion against Northern Province Chief Minister C. V. Wigneswaran was not withdrawn, Eelam People's Revolutionary liberation Front (EPRLF) Leader Suresh Premachandran opined yesterday.

EPRLF, ITAK, PLOTE and TELO are the constituent parties in the TNA.

The motion has been signed mainly by the ITAK members. The other three parties met last evening and discussed modalities to sort out the problem.

Mr. Premachandran told the Daily Mirror that the motion should be withdrawn as otherwise the TNA would not be able to keep its allies together in Parliament as well. (Kelum Bandara)

    Whether Sinhala, Tamil or Muslim, our politicians are the same. Personal or party agendas / ambitions come first before the wellbeing of the people they represent.

    TNA should stand firm until CM Weggie is thrown out and it should be a good slap to Mahinda

    Before the next elections, MR had planned to break the TNA, let Samanthan talk to the President and PM and sack CM.

    Thank you God for not giving the Tamils, the Eelam. There would have more upheavals and more bloodshed.
