Former Deputy Minister Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan alias ‘Karuna Amman’, yesterday launched a new political party called the “Tamil United Freedom Party” in Batticaloa.
Speaking at the the inauguration of the new party at Focus Hall, Batticaloa, Karuna Amman who was the former Vice President of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) said the party would be based in Batticaloa and would also open branches in the North and East.
He said the party would be registered soon.
Batticaloa District Civil Organization President T. Wimaladas has been appointed as the General Secretary of the new party.(Jawfer Khan)
A clear indication why Constitution should have a clause to say no poltical party should formed on racial lines. via DM Android App

Kiris Baba Amaray Monday, 13 February 2017 11:17 AM

The plan is to start the party and Karuna will lean to UNP gradually, wait and see.

I agree with most comments. its obviously a racially motivated party. parties using words like sinhala Tamil Muslim Islam should not be allowed via DM Android App

Some are claiming they were enhineered Karuna to defact from LTTE. Then why did not Karuna invite them for chief guest via DM Android App

No buy now he should have been sent to gallows.
Kiris Baba Amaray Sunday, 12 February 2017 07:28 PM
Why he is not arrested yet?
Manuel Benjamin Sunday, 12 February 2017 07:32 PM
This culprit should be arrested as he too looted with MR
J Palitha Sunday, 12 February 2017 07:40 PM
Very soon he will do it on a sly as this is the Master plan of Mahinda.

His game plan will not work. He should have formed a party to unite tamils and sinhalese.

Any Party that has the name of a race/religion should be considered 'Racist' IMO. Do you see parties like 'Pure AngloSaxon Party' in the UK?

he should have remained in the party.
Kariyawasam Sunday, 12 February 2017 10:38 AM
Purpose of this party is very clear. This is to split Tamil votes and reduce UNP vote base. This should be MR's plan....
SL Sunday, 12 February 2017 11:38 AM
No need karuna to reduce UNP votes,UNP themselves have reduced their votes.

He should have invited Mahinda Rajapakse as the chief guest for the ceremony and the patron to the new party.
