Sampanthan warns of forces against TNA

[TamilNet, Friday, 20 February 2004, 14:01 GMT]
"Some powerful political forces are working hard to sabotage the attempt of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) to win more parliamentary seats in the northeast province. Tamils should be vigilant, identify these elements and foil their actions," said TNA ex-parliamentary group leader Mr.R.Sampanthan speaking at a meeting held Thursday night in Trincomalee, which was attended by Trincomalee district political head of the Liberation Tigers Mr.S.Thilak.

TEEDOR Trincomalee district head Mr.S.Tharman presided the meeting.

Trincomalee district leaders of the TNA participated in the discussion to map out the election strategy for the forthcoming general election, which has been fixed for April 2, sources said.

Mr.Tharman said Tamils in the Trincomalee district should show their unity to the Sinhala political forces and the international community by voting in full strength for the TNA at the forthcoming general election.

Mr.Thilak said the election result of the Trincomalee district should clearly demonstrate to everyone that the district has been the traditional homeland of Tamils.

Mr.Sampanthan said about twenty seats could be won in the northeast province at the forthcoming general election if Tamils united under one banner, the TNA. Powerful political forces have become agitated that more TNA members would enter the new parliament at the next general election. Hence these forces are engaging trying to sabotage the election plans of the TNA.

Mr.K.Thurairatnasingham also spoke.
