The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) today issued an open call to Tamil political parties to join the alliance and stand united on the issues faced by the Tamils.
TNA Parliamentarian M.A Sumanthiran told reporters in Jaffna that Tamil political parties must not attempt to divide the Tamil community.
He said that with Parliamentary elections coming up it is important that Tamil parties unite and ensure Tamils are united.
Sumanthiran said that the TNA is the main Tamil political alliance in the country so other parties must come under its wing to fight for the rights of Tamils.
He also said that the TNA is prepared to have talks with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
Sumanthiran said that if the President invites the TNA for talks it will agree to meet him as he is the President for the entire country.
The Tamil parliamentarian said that since Rajapaksa is new to politics he may make some unrealistic statements related to the Tamil issue.
However, he said that in months to come Rajapaksa will realise there are some things he will need to do on the Tamil issue. (Colombo Gazette)
