Colombo, Feb 22 (Daily Mirror) - The Trincomalee District Court issued an enjoining order restraining office bearers of Ilankai Tamil Arasu Kadchi (ITAK) from holding the National Convention which was scheduled to be held on February 19. 

The District Court made this order consequent to a plaint filed by plaintiff Chandrasekaram Para, a member of the ITAK, and this enjoining order will be effective till February 29. 

The plaintiff is challenging the election of the newly elected leader of the ITAK based on alleged irregularities followed at the election. 

The plaintiff has named Mavai Senathirajah, S. Sritharan, P. Sathiyalingam, S. Kugathasan, S.X. Kulanayagam, M.A. Sumanthiran and S. Yogeshwaran as defendants.

The plaintiff further sought an enjoining order restraining the ITAK office bearers from implementing any of the decisions taken at the purported General Council meetings held on January 21, 2024 and January 27, 2024. 

This plaint had been filed through Attorney-at-law Ishwarya Sivakumar.

    It looks very fishy. How could the winer of the ITAK leadership election Mr Sritharan and the looser of the election Mr Summanthiran, both be named as defendants by the plaintiff. Number of votes cast in the leadership election was just a few hundred and it is ludicrous to suggest that there could have been any irregularities in the process. But ask a simple question , Who would benefit from this bizarre challenge the plaintiff is making against the this leadership election ? Definitely it can’t be Mr Sritharan.
