Tamil United Liberation Front (TULF) General Secretary and newly formed Democratic Tamil National Front (DTNF) member V. Anandasangaree claims a large sum of money allocated for the North had been returned to the treasury.
He says this shows the inefficiency of the Northern Provincial Council led by the Tamil National Alliance and their incapacity to administer.
“In the present political situation, the problems of the people including those of their fundamental rights are not properly tackled. The main purpose of the new alliance is to find proper ways and means, through a new democratic alternate leadership, which will not merely voice the grievances of the people but also endeavour to solve them by taking them up with the Indian and Sri Lankan Governments and with many others if necessary, with suitable solutions,” he said.
Anandasangaree said that the people had high hopes of getting help through the TNA, but the members of the TNA are fighting among themselves.
“They could not negotiate with the Government to have the Political prisoners released. In the East they face the Sampoor problem, in the North the water problem and the problems of the Ex LTTE cadre are all a big threat for peaceful living. In a situation like this there are a lot of things to be done for their peaceful living,” he added.
The central committee of the TULF, meanwhile, met today and discussed the way forward and the future plans of the new alliance. (Colombo Gazette)
