TULF General Secretary V. Anandasangaree said that the country as a whole is in a much confused state, if not at least various ethnic groups are.
Anandasangaree says there is a general feeling that it is the general interest of the Tamils that is now suffering due to the disunity among the Tamil groups and Tamil political parties.
He says the Tamil National Alliance, although not properly functioning for a lengthy period is misusing the term TNA for the sole benefit and promotion of the Illangai Thamil Arasu Katchi (ITAK).
Anandasangaree says the TNA’s other constituent partners, due to the discrimination by the TNA, have lost their credibility as parties representing the Tamils through the TNA.
He says a moral duty is now cast on the leadership of the TNA to get united themselves and to bring all other Tamil parties committed to look after the interest of the Tamil speaking people under one banner.
Anandasangaree warned that if the TNA fails to do that then the TULF has a duty by the founders of the TULF to take the initiative to bring all interested in Tamil rights, under one banner. (Colombo Gazette)
