Govt. trying to create a rift within TNA; Sampanthan

E-mail Print
Tamil National Alliance's leader R. Sampanthan said that the government has continuously tried to create a rift within the TNA.

“This has been happening for a long time. The Government has continuously tried to create a rift among us. They stole the only Sinhalese member who was a member of our party. I insisted on giving him nominations at the general election despite objections by a lot of people and he won the election, thereafter the government stole him” he said.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror Sampanthan went on to point out that the government has managed to break all opposing political groups in the country. “ The UNP, JVP, CWC, SLMC and almost every other significant opposing political entity has been broken and I don’t have the slightest doubt that they are trying to create a further rift within our party” he said.

Wherever SB goes he makes a mess of it. Good example is the 2011 A/L results. Last year there was a big bang about the 'Leadership camp'. This year still there is no noise of that. Once it was reported he wanted to train for 6 weeks but we think 2 weeks is more than enough. For the school candidates who will be sitting for the GCE Advanced Level this year (2012), still the schools has not got their application forms. Last year applications were closed in February.

There should be no racist parties in SL who are only clamouring for special priviledges for only their people. The TNA have always been anti SL and they deserve all the very worst for the support to the LTTE which destroyed Tamils and Tamil culture even if we ignore the support for atrocities against non-Tamils.

If a party fighting for the rights of the people and voice on thier behalf was identified as anti SL then I would encourage them to do it more vigorously. Asking for the rights is not peatriotic then w have no choice other than fight back.

agree about the racist part. There should be multi-cultural multi-ethnic parties. how can we end the ethinic issue when the minority themselves create the rift?

Sir, Get 3 cabinet minister posts and you can eat all the opposition parties as you are the only one against them.
Don't miss the chance.

Divide and concur it the oldest trick in the book. This Government is a masters of the game. They successfully did this to the UNP, JVP and now the TNA.

He is right, this government has the worst record in buying MPs from opposition parties either through threats or with filthy lucre. They have already managed to break up almost all the opposition political parties in the country in this manner and achieved a two-third steamroller majority which helped the President to go on contesting elections.

You are a experienced politician, why u are worried about the rift. Only TNA can win with home symbol. If someone goes out, he is the looser. Here we tamils not looking at the persons but in the party in whole.

TNA called its self the party for all Tamils, but they do not care much of the tamils on tea plantations.
and if the TNA cares rally about tamils, then they should make effords to give tamils free Sinhala education.
because everybody shloud see that to increase the economy of our nation is to use one language.
the best way and cheapest way for our economy is to teach to minority the language of the majority.
this happens in every country around the world.

TNA the proxies of the vanquished LTTE, the political mouth peice of the and the pawn of its western backers,have two options! To go against the motherland and the will of the majority and face the music or accept to coexsist and fight strategically to win your demands like the late Thondaman.

The choice is yours!!

If Sampanthan is aware that Mahinda Rajapakse is trying to split TNA, why he is meeting Mahinda all alone without any others from his own group. The suspision on Sampanthan is always starting from here. He should understand this.

Nobody, not the government or any one else need do anything to create a rift within TNA. Sampanthan himself doing the needful.
