TNA awaiting invite to APRC

The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) last week said it was yet to receive an official invitation by the government to participate at the All Party Representatives Committee (APRC).

APRC Chairman Prof. Tissa Vitharana had on Tuesday invited the UNP, JVP and TNA to join the APRC proceedings to work out a political solution to the national question.

Prof. Vitharana said that the 86th session of APRC deliberations was held on Monday (3).  According to Prof. Vitharana, there are 13 political parties inclusive of 11 government and two opposition parties.

The JVP and the UNP have continued to boycott APRC meetings since 2006 and 2007 respectively.

TNA Parliamentarian, Mavai Senathiraja told The Sunday Leader that the party would take a decision on whether to participate at APRC meetings once it receives the official invitation by the government.

“There has been an invitation by the government for the TNA to take part at the APRC meetings. But, we still have not received an official invitation requesting the party to take part at these meetings. We can only take a decision once we receive an official invitation,” Senathiraja said.

It was also reported that a TNA delegation  would be going to India to meet  politicians of the central government. Senathiraja however said that the visit was still tentative and the dates of the visit have not been decided. 

A delegation of the TNA, which was in Tamil Nadu last month had met Tamil Nadu politicians and artistes who staged protests against the attacks on Tamils in Sri Lanka.
