Sivajilingam contesting presidential election causes confusion among Tamil political parties

[TamilNet, Saturday, 19 December 2009, 06:29 GMT]
Confusion and rift among the constituent parties of Tamil National Alliance (TNA) came to light Friday when Thamizh Arasukk Kadchi (TAK) prominent persons walked away from the event of paying respects to Thanthai Selva’s memorial monument in Jaffna when Sivajilingam, TNA parliamentarian and presidential candidate, tried to participate in the event, sources in Jaffna said. Sivajilingam garlanded the monument alone and the TAK persons came and paid their respects 15 minutes after Sivajilingam had left the place.

The event was organized by TAK to mark the 60th anniversary of the founding of the party and Sivajilingam was not invited to the event.

TAK prominent persons including V. K. Sivagnanam and Kulanayagam along with a hundred of TAK had gathered at Thanthai Selva’s memorial monument to pay their respects Friday.

TAK shunning Sivajilingam Friday showed developing rift among the Tamil political parties of TNA caused by Sivajilingam contesting presidential election, political observers in Jaffna said.
