Tamil circles urge TNA to enunciate policy

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 17 February 2010, 03:45 GMT]
Several organizations in Jaffna including those of the students and intellectuals have called upon Tamil National Alliance (TNA) to make public its proposed solution for the ethnic issue well before the forthcoming parliamentary election, sources in Jaffna said. The call comes in the wake of rumours that TNA stands divided as some of its senior parliamentarians are planning to field new candidates other than the present representatives in order to strengthen their positions, the sources added. Meanwhile, TNA is being urged to state their policy clearly as it was done in 1976 in the first National Convention of the Tamil United Liberation Front (TULF) where the Vaddukoddai Resolution was proclaimed, the sources added.

Most of the TNA parliamentarians are now in Jaffna actively engaged in the selection of candidates and other matters related to the parliamentary election.

It is said that some of the senior TNA parliamentarians are attempting to drop out some of the TNA parliamentarians in favour of new faces in the list of candidates, creating a split in TNA, the sources said.

TNA parliamentary leader R. Sampanthan and parliamentarian Suresh Premachandran are said to be busy drawing up a solution for the ethnic issue and the organizations want them to reveal the proposed solution before the election, they added.

Some prominent persons among the intellectual community in Jaffna who have intentions of contesting the parliamentary elections are said to be willing to reconsider their decisions if TNA comes out with its proposal for a solution for the ethnic issue, they further said.

Meanwhile, the police security afforded to parliamentarians being withdrawn some of the TNA parliamentarians now in Jaffna are planning to get back to Colombo due to threats to their lives.

TNA is being strongly urged to act on the lines of Vaddukoddai Resolution by all factions in Jaffna peninsula, the sources said.
