Wickremasinghe pledges support to TNA protest

[TamilNet, Thursday, 05 October 2006, 01:26 GMT]
Ranil Wickremasinghe, leader of the opposition, pledged support to the TNA protest when Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarians Mavai Senathirajah, and Suresh Premachandran led by R. Sampanthan met Mr Wickremasinge Wednesday evening in the Sri Lanka Parliament complex to discuss opposition party's stand on their sit-in-protest in Sri Lanka's parliament, TNA sources said.

Ranil Wickremasinghe while pledging support had told that TNA delegation that he had spoken to the Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) about the sit-in-protest and had pointed out that COlombo has failed to address the humanitarian problems faced by the Tamils, the MPs said.

The TNA parliamentarians said that they intimated the Opposition Leader about Tamils and Tamil traders being abducted in Colombo, and that number of disappearances and extra-judicial killings have increased in the Northeast. Mr Wickremesinghe had expressed the urgent need to stop the atrocities, said the parliamentarians.

The TNA sit-in-protest in Sri Lanka's parliament begun on Wednesday 27th September enters fifth day this week demanding the immediate opening of the A-9 land route to Jaffna district linking other parts of the country, and to lift economic embargo on the Jaffna population.
