Sampanthan to address TNA election rallies in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Monday, 22 March 2004, 18:31 GMT]
Tamil National Alliance (TNA) leader Mr.R.Sampanthan is scheduled to attend several election rallies in Jaffna electoral district Tuesday. He will fly to Palaly from Colombo Tuesday afternoon after meeting the ambassadors of the member countries of the European Union (EU), TNA sources said.

Mr.Sampanthan's visit to Jaffna is widely expected as a crucial one in Jaffna political circles, as he is to address TNA rallies against the independent group fielded by TULF President Mr. V.Anandasangaree and Eelam Peoples Democratic Party (EPDP) led by Mr. Douglas Devananda, sources said.

Mr.Anandasangaree has been forced to field an independent group following his legal action taken by him against the TULF Secretary General and Senior Vice President Mr.Sampanthan and Mr.Jospeh Pararajasingham respectively.

However except Mr.Anandasangaree other leaders in the TULF have been contesting general election in the name of Ilankai Thamil Arasu Katchchi (ITAK), which is popularly known in the southern politics as the Federal Party (FP), sources said.

This is the first time Mr.Sampanthan is to address election meeting against his party President Mr.Anandasangaree.
