Tamil Progressive Alliance (TPA) leader Mano Ganesan yesterday requested President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to nominate a member representing Tamil Sri Lankans of recent Indian origin living outside north and east to the constitutional drafting committee.
Ganesan made this request by a letter sent to the President.
TPA leader also said that he spoke to Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa on this issue over the phone yesterday. “Already Dr. Sarveshwaran and Prof. Kamurdeen had been nominated to this nine-member committee providing sense of inclusiveness to Tamils in north and east and Muslims,” he said.
Ganesan said he wants same sense of inclusiveness for the recent Indian origin Tamils living outside north and eastern provinces.
