Two TNA candidates have withdrawn their candidacy due to threats by an unknown gang in the Batticaloa district, former MP M.K. Sivajilingam said.

Mr. Sivajilingam told Daily Mirror that the TNA was to file nominations for the district today, but the list had to be prepared again after the withdrawal of candidacy  by  two members. He said political groups having links with the UPFA had started threatening their political opponents.

“This is a serious trend at the very beginning,” he said.

He said the house of a leading TNA candidate for Batticaloa, K. Thurairajasingham had been padlocked from the outside by an unidentified gang so that nobody get out.

The main door of the house had been locked in this way when the occupants were asleep. Later, police assistance  was sought to break it open it.( Kelum Bandara and M. Sukri)

    TNA is a party who deceives the Tamils, so nothing special these guys withdrawls. Good anyway.

    Jayantha Jayamanne Wednesday, 18 July 2012 01:30 PM

    Very good move, they know even if they contest the people will teach them a good lesson.

    unitl war criminals are punished, we can`t expect political freedom. there will be more threats from war criminals and their associations.

    "TNA is a party who deceives the tamils" - but they are elected by the tamils as their sole representative in the tamils diminated areas. "ane pala Godaya".

    Imran Hussein Wednesday, 18 July 2012 04:25 PM

    Thats not the point (above comments), that if TNA good or not.
    Who are behind thiese threats?

    Godagampala Rohana Wednesday, 18 July 2012 05:01 PM

    Correct Kiris, From empty vessels no-one is going to be benefitted.

    Piranha Wednesday, 18 July 2012 05:47 PM

    Eastern people will show the win of TNA and SLMC and defeat all the outside traitors who work with the support of the govt.

    Miracle of Asia and its Democratic politics!!!

    hussain Wednesday, 18 July 2012 07:58 PM

    This is the current state of the country and Government. Unfortunately if the TULF contest in the name of Padlock.
    They will win the seat. People believe in the party.

    Thomas Thursday, 19 July 2012 01:23 AM

    Is it going to be a election without malpractices? Ruling party trying gimmicks with their Tamil armed alliances threatening other democratic parties to withdraw. Who can control this??????????

    nicky karunarathna Thursday, 19 July 2012 01:17 AM

    What they saw, so shall they reap. This is what they did to others when they had the LTTE backing with most leathal weapons. Remember? Get them to withdraw from the country all together where Tamil can live peacefully with their umbilical brothers - Sinhalese!
