Basil Rajapaksa insulted Thondaman - CWC MP

[TamilNet, Friday, 03 August 2007, 14:39 GMT]
A leading Ceylon Workers Congress (CWC) member and CWC parliamentarian Muttu Sivalingam Friday told media at Kotagala in the up-country that their party would sit as an independent group in the opposition seats of the Sri Lankan parliament following their resignation of ministerial portfolios Thursday. The CWC decision to withdraw its support was made following the disagreement on 'Mahinda Chintanaya'. Mr. Muttu Sivalingam accused Mr. Basil Rajapaksa, the brother and political advisor of SL President Mahinda Rajapaksa for verbally abusing the CWC leader Arumugam Thondaman for not acting subservient to Mahinda doctrine.

"Our leader was totally insulted by Mr. Basil Rajapaksa," Sivalingam told media at Kotagala.

"We only joined the UPFA government for the sake of our people in up-country. But, there has been no concrete achievement. Our support to the UPFA government so far, was based on a mutual agreement. "

"We will not subjugate for threats and intimidation," he further said.

Meanwhile, another CWC member said that the relationship between the CWC and Rajapaksa government severed recently when the government detained satellite communication equipment which were brought from India to set up an IT communication facility in Kotagala.
