Sampanthan polity interdicts Ananthy Sasitharan from ITAK

[TamilNet, Saturday, 17 January 2015, 16:54 GMT]
The Jaffna District General Secretary of Ilangkai Thamizh Arasuk Kadchi (ITAK) K. Thurairasasingam has sent a registered letter to Ms Ananthy Sasitharan, the popularly elected provincial councillor in the North, stating that she had been interdicted from the ITAK for having acted against the decision of the ITAK to support Maithiripala Sirisena in the Sri Lankan Presidential Election, informed TNA sources in Jaffna said. Ms Sasitharan has ‘violated’ the party discipline by issuing statements, conducting a press conference and by making opinion contrary to what the party had decided, the letter dated 11 January 2015, states.

The interdiction affects Ms Sasitharan's membership in the ITAK and its central executive committee, the letter further said adding that she will soon receive the charge sheet against her.

However, the accusations were baseless on procedural grounds, the TNA sources further said.

Mr Thurairasasingam is aligned with R. Sampanthan and M.A. Sumanthiran of the ITAK.

In the meantime, ITAK Youth Wing leader VS Sivakaran, in a statement issued on Friday said that a section was conspiring against the Tamil national activists with a hidden motive of unseating the activists, who are not prepared to compromise the fundamental concepts of Tamil Sovereignty (thaayakam), Nationhood (theasiyam) and the Right to Self-Determination (thannaadchi).

Senior ITAK Central Committee Member and former UN consultant Ma'ravan-pulavu K. Sachithananthan addressed the press in Jaffna before the presidential election together with Mr Sivakaran and Ms Ananthy, clarifying their position on the SL presidential election.

The press conference was convened after the ITAK leader and parliamentarian Mavai Senathirajah had threatened Ms Ananthy to resign from the ITAK after her interview to the BBC Tamil Service and a Canadian Tamil radio.
