Former NPC Chief Minister and the Secretary-General of the Tamil People’s Alliance C.V. Wigneswaran said that he believed that the Tamils will fully involve in the political, economic and social activities of the Tamil People’s Alliance and strengthen their stance.

Hence, if we are to say that their participation in political activities and awareness campaigns is far greater which is not an exaggeration,” Secretary-General of the Tamil People’s Alliance
