Tamil National Alliance (TNA) MP M.A. Sumanthiran said yesterday that the Tamils voted for former minister Sarath Fonseka in 2010 and for President Maithripala Sirisena in 2015 not because they liked them but because they disliked the other presidential candidate Mahinda Rajapaksa.

He said this at a function held to mark the death anniversary of former Batticaloa district TNA MP Joseph Pararajasingham who was gunned down in 2005 during the Christmas Day Midnight Mass at St. Mary's Cathedral, in Batticaloa.

Mr. Sumanthiran said Tamils do not want Mr. Rajapaksa to return to power.

    Mr SumaMore Tamils are getting behind MR now.TNA and UNP have let them down very badly.You and your fellow MP's do not go and see people on the streets. You are completely out of touch with the people on the street.More than 30% of tamils will vote for MR at the next election.

    Mr Sumanthiran, people like you only make them hate Mahinda for your own survival. People realised how artficial and selfish you are during the floods crisis. You can not brainwash tamil people everyday. This will checnge very soon.

    If prabakaran was alive no tamil will vote for him peopleknow that. In that case no one can say tamils disliked MR.They like MR for giving them freedom to vote, and to live in peacefully
