TNA Parliamentarians M.A Sumanthiran and Shanakiyan Rasamanickam, who are presently in Canada, were driven away from a meeting held with a group of Tamil diaspora, who branded them as 'traitors' alleging the diaspora wanted a separate Tamil state in Sri Lanka.

Both Sumanthiran and Rasamanickam came under heavy criticism while the meeting was on, with the group alleging that the MPs had severely failed in their duties towards the Tamil community, especially in north-east Sri Lanka, the Daily Mirror learns. 

The Police had to intervene to safely lead the two Parliamentarians out. 
Sources said when Sumanthiran participated in similar meetings in Australia and in Switzerland earlier, he had faced a similar issue and was forced to leave the meeting due to heavy criticism by these diaspora groups. 

Rasamanickam in a Twitter post today said the protestors claimed they did not want a political settlement and insisted that a separate state of Tamil Eelam was the only solution to the Tamil national question in Sri Lanka.

    With the economy never getting off , widespread corruption, corrupt police and judiciary and people voting politicians with no substance, SL is laying the foundation for a separate Tamil state

    Refugee jockers.

    I am a Canadian Jaffna Tamil. The problem is the middle class Hindu Jaffna Tamils have no representation among the Tamil diaspora in Canada, and in other Western countries. The Tamil diaspora is controlled by LTTE supporters and Tamil Catholics.

    Well said Dr. In fact the diaspora Tamils do not understand the ground reality or the difficulties of poor Tamils living in SL. They face the same difficulties of poor Sinhalese or Muslims. We have to join hands to stop corrupt politicians and develop the Nation through good education to our children. Mr Sumanthiran yields lot of respect from everyone here.

    And our President wants a dialogue with the Tamil diaspora without working with local Tamil representation who are aware of the ground situaion.

    Mee Haraka is looking for disspora money. His meeharak thinking is that when start talking with these groups they will start investing in north and east.

    Dr V Balakrishnan Monday, 22 November 2021 11:54 PM

    PHD Pathmalingam , Sorry, 'Doctor' Two MPs selected by Tamils votes work for Rajapakshas and selling our right to majority for petty gains. For long time, Tamils know that both work for Sinhalese. So they are traitors. I don't understand why do you bring words such as Jaffna Tamil, middle glass, hindu, Christian---------- here. See a good medical doctor please.
