Differences Of Opinion Still In TNA

By Waruni Karunarathne

Tamil National Alliance (TNA) continues to experience differences of opinion within the coalition parties but is making an effort to get together on common matters.

TNA MP Suresh Premachandran told The Sunday Leader that coalition parties of the TNA are still having differences of opinion but making an effort to work together on common issues such as finding a solution to Tamil political issue. “Right now internally within the coalition parties we are having discussions related to the upcoming parliamentary election and as to what stand we will take.

The TNA is also having discussions related to this. Even though more than six years have elapsed since the war ended, Tamil people still have unresolved issues – resettlement is not done to meet the expectations of the people. Therefore we need to decide on our election manifesto,” Premachandran said. According to him, discussions are also taking place related to the list of candidates to contest the election from different districts.  “We are still having differences of opinion.

I do not deny that. However, we are trying our best to get together on common matters,” he said.

    The only dissident in the TNA is Suresh Prechandran. He is always at logger head with other members of the TNA and marching to a different tune. When the TNA decided to extend support to Maithripala Sirisena at the presidential elections he stayed away from canvassing. After voting, he said he voted for Sirisena reluctantly. He is also carrying the EPLRF baggage responsible for the killing of thousands of Thamils during the IPKF time.
