Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Parliamentarian S. Viyalendiran has extended support to Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
Viyalendiran had extended support to Mahinda Rajapaksa during the political crisis last October.
The TNA had then initiated a disciplinary inquiry against the Parliamentarian as the party had supported Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe during the crisis and opposed Rajapaksa.
He has since operated as an independent MP in Parliament. (Colombo Gazette)
