Mahinda Rajapaksa shuns North TNA parliamentarians

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 19 October 2010, 05:19 GMT]
Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapaksa has failed to invited the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarians of the North to a meeting related to ‘Development of North’ in Vavuniyaa Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Joseph Camp Tuesday, deliberately keeping away the elected representatives of the people from participating in the meeting, TNA parliamentarians of North accused. The participation of the elected representatives is crucial as issues of Sinhala colonization in the North, refusal to resettlement of uprooted Tamils in their own properties and similar matters are to be explored in Tuesday meeting, they said. Purposely shunning the democratically elected representatives from participating in decision making meetings by Sri Lanka government reveals how very much it discriminates the Tamils, TNA MPs said.

Mahinda Rajapaksa has invited Sri Lanka Government Agents of Jaffna, Ki’linochchi, Mullaiththeevu, Vavuniyaa and Mannaar and the Departmental heads in the above districts in the North to Tuesday meeting in Vavuniyaa.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka President had failed to invite TNA Eastern Province parliamentarians to the Eastern Provincial Development review meeting held 4 October in the Naval Headquarters auditorium in Trincomalee presided by Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Security arrangements have been strengthened in Vavuniyaa and the invitees to the Tuesday meeting will be allowed entry only after checking, sources in Vavuniyaa said.
