TNA asserts it does not want the LTTE to return

Tamil National Alliance (TNA) leader R Sampanthan told Parliament today that the TNA does not want the LTTE to return.

He said the TNA also does not want violence and instead wants a political solution for the Tamils within a united Sri Lanka.

“That is something we publicly state. So why don’t we try to make harmony with people,” he said.

Sampanthan also called for a meeting with the Minister of Justice to discuss the political prisoner issue saying it must be urgently addressed.

He said that the political prisoners have been arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA), a law which the Government promised to repeal.

Sampanthan questioned the justification to continue keeping those arrested under the PTA behind bars when the Government has admitted that the PTA must be repealed. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. After 30 war by Tamil terrorist of LTTE ruthless mass scale killing by Tamils has not end. We do not trust TNA line of Federalism of Tamil self rule in North. We cannot give Policies or Land power to TNA?

  2. TNA is following LTTE instruction to expel the Government Army from North saying they want the land back. Many Tamils have in North have thousands of hectares under their name without doing any development; but TNA never asked them to distribute among other Tamils. TNA wants only to chase Army away from North to run LTTE again; there is no doubt about it. The Why this Sampanthan who is a very old man giving evidence against Sri Lanka in UN?
