TNA Parliamentarian M.A. Sumanthiran has said that the TNA was invited to join the Government but the TNA rejected the offer.
He said the TNA has been invited since 2015 to be part of the Government and the invitation had come even from President Maithripala Sirisena.
However, he said the focus of the TNA is to ensure the Tamils obtain a political solution to their concerns.
He said that till such an acceptable solution is obtained the TNA will not join the Government. (Colombo Gazette)
