The treacherous TNA continues to  demand directly or indirectly through its proxies from UNP to implement the 13th amendment in  full and grant a written commitment in this regard.  Following the precarious situation faced by the foreign servile UNP and their vicious  attempt to hang on to the government the TNA proxy TELO has demanded from the UNP to give a written assurance that they would implement the 13th Amendment in full, along with land and Police powers and to merge the North and the East as a condition for support  to UNP too form a Government. The TELO representatives have said the TNA should secure a written commitment to address five demands as a conditional to support the UNP at this hour.

The release of military held land, the repealing of the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) and the freeing of LTTE suspects commonly called Tamil political prisoners, are the three other demands. The former Provincial Councillor  and  the slain Prabhakaran’s cousin TELO member M.K. Sivajilingam has reiterated these demands.

The TNA has 16 seats in Parliament. One of them has already joined the Government, and another remains neutral. Out of the remaining 14 MPs, TELO is represented by two members.

The ITAK is the dominant party represented by TNA terrorist Grandpa Sambamdan  and influential members in the coterie are  diaspora bank rolled Sumanthiran and Mavai Senathirajah Commenting on this TNA demand the leader of the Pivithuru Hela Urumaya Attorney at Law Udaya Gammanpila ha said the UNP and the TNA should reveal of any agreement between them which had compelled the TNA to back the UNP, Addressing a news briefing, he has said the TNA had been reiterating in the past that they would not support the UNP to form a Government for more than one month and all of sudden, the TNA has changed its stand and decided to support Ranil Wickremesinghe to be the Prime Minister,” Gammanpila asked as to.What are the promises given by the UNP to the TNA for the TNA to suddenly change its stand?” He said the people of this country have a right to know the contents of the agreement since the people may have to face its disastrous consequences and  reminded that during the 2001 Parliamentary election campaign,  Mangala Samaraweera disclosed a UNP – LTTE agreement.Although the UNP denied it, and  they implemented the contents of the agreement after coming to office. Similarly, Tissa Attanayake disclosed an agreement between the UNP and TNA just before the Presidential Election in 2015.Although the UNP denied it, most of the promises mentioned therein were implemented by the UNP. Hence,  he urged both the UNP and TNA to disclose the agreement which compelled the TNA to pledge its support to Ranil Wickremesinghe.

It has become clear now that the TNA has now become a leading partner of UNP and their leading role was evident in the Parliament recently when the diaspora bank rolled treacherous Sumanthiran was shown in the TV channels getting up from his seat and rushing up to the senior UNP vice President Lakshman Kirill and warning him about some comments made by Kiriella. Whatever our political affiliations may be Sumanthioran should understand the Mr. Kiriella hails from a respectable Kandyan family, a leader ,lawyer unlike the jungle law practised by him, and a senior parliamentarian who  entered parliament first as an SLP parliamentarian in 1989.  It was shame for the UNP members to allow this terrorist representing the diaspora to humiliate one of their Vice Presidents.  Even the demented Karu Jayasuriya remained silent but his reactions would have been completely different if such a thing was done by Mr. Wimal Weerawansa or someone else from the government

Someday after this incident hat this diaspora proxy Sumanthiran has attended an internal meeting of the UNP chaired by party leader Ranil Wickremesinghe.  Reports said that many UNP members were puzzled that how Ranil has allowed Sumanthiran to attend this internal party meeting. UNP sources said that this was the first ever occasion offer a TNA member participated in one of their internal meetings.

It has become clear now that TNA has presently become a leading partner of UNP.

The TNA comprises  ITAK, TELO, PLOTE and EPRLF. It is reported that EP[RLF has dropped out of the TNA due to alleged political differences. The TNA contested the August 2015 Parliamentary polls under the house symbol of its chief constituent the ITAK The TNA contesting as ITAK won sixteen seats consisting of fourteen elected and two National list MP’s in the last election. After the EPRLF pull -out the number has dropped to 15 from 16 MP’s

As per political analysts the TNA which was formed by Tamil journalists, including Taraki and some professionals in the year 2001 as the political wing of the terrorist LTTE with the blessings of the megalomaniac terrorist supremo the slain Prabhakaran is facing an erosion of its political prospects and the February Local Government election its voter base has lost by 34% from 2015 August election and February election and the Tamil Makkal Katchi  (TMK) headed by Wigneswaran iis gaining popularity. In the LG elections the TNA haswon full control of only a few Pradeshiya Sabhas and many institutions including the Jaffna Municipality it has formed councils with the support of other parties obliging to their demands.  It is said that that in a future election it will become an insignificant party with only a few members getting elected and as a party unable to play any significant role in the Sri Lankan political arena.

That is why the 86-year-old terrorist grandpa Saambandan keeps on meeting all western ambassadors and high commissioners and meeting all western and Indian diplomats  strongly  urging them to demand the government to adopt  the proposed constitution before the end of this year, which he asserts that Ranill has promised to implement before the end of this year.  May be the terrorist grandpa visualises that by adopting this Federal and Secular constitution he could breath his last as a man achieved something for his community.

All his dreams have been shattered by the 26th October revolution and that may be one reason that he is spending sleepless nights against the ouster of the western slavish Ranil who was popular as Paragathi Agamathi (foreign inclined Prime Minister).  Other than the challenge  that will be posed by the new  political formation of Wigneswaran and other political groups the TNA could also face an internal party crisis if Sambandan becomes no more before the next election which would split the TNA into the original 4 parties or more.

This may be the reason that Sumanthiran who became a National List member from the North getting closer to the UNP and seems to be playing a major role in that party with the blessings of Ranil the dictator of the UNP. Due to the volatile political situation in the North Sumanthiran will not be able to get a National list appointment from the TNA as they could be severely dented in the next election.  It should also be remembered that Sumanthioran’s intent to somersault to other parties was also evident earlier by his participation in the JEPPOs May Day rally held in Jaffna sporting a Red Shirt. This diaspora proxy seems to be inclined to join UNP or JEPPOs because the current policies of both parties are to destabilize and destroy Sri Lanka which perfectly fits with his diaspora policies.

From the day Sri Lanka’s sworn enemy Singapore born Chelvaayagam entered Sri Lankan politics he has accused Sri Lankan governments of discriminating Tamil s and instigated Tamils to revolt against the Sinhalese.  When granting of independent to Sri Lanka (Ceylon) was being contemplated, speaking in the Legislative Council this  Droginayagam has said that if independence is to be granted to Ceylon Tamils should be granted a separate State because Tamils are superior to Sinhalese and  it should not be allowed Tamil to be ruled by Sinhalese and they should be granted a separate State.   In response to his speech the Council member Sir Marcan Markar, the then Minister of Communications and Works has emphasized that Sinhalese are the majority in this country and the Muslims would be happy to be ruled by the Sinhalese as they had been ruling this country without any discrimination and amicably for several centuries.

This Drohinayagam was responsible for all ethnic problems in Sri Lanka and some shameless accidentally born Sinhala politicians such as Rajitha Senaratne, the ship owner and Wickremabahu Karunaratne, the green hearted bogus Marxist address praising him at his commemoration ceremonies.  This Drohinayagams categorisation of Tamils were only Tamils living in the North and East and the elite Tamils living in Colombo. Estate Tamils were considered by him as low caste  coolies or Kallarthonis.

It is strange to find these ethnic chauvinists who shout discriminations remain tight lipped when there is something that5 is advantageous for them. For instance, see the chart below relating to the 2015 General Election.

As per this chart while the JEPPOS have got 543,944 votes amounting to 4.87% of votes and buy this they have become entitled to 6 seats in the Parliament the TNA (ITAK) got 515,963 votes with 4,62% of votes and bagged 16 seats nearly three times of seats than JEPPOS.  What a discrimination?  Which is solely due to discrepancies in our election system.  How can a party with 4.87% votes get only 6 seats and  a party with 4,62%b of votes get 16 seats and due to the despicable nature of the preferential voting system.  Therefore, all attempts should be made  to hold the next general election on the first past post system known as the Electorate System at least using the old electorate register that used to exist before 1989 if there is insufficient time to complete the new delimitation process which was deliberately delayed by despotic Ranil as it would become disadvantageous to the UNP. For instance, in the Matara district there is no member for certain electorates while there is more than one member for certain electorates.  It is same throughout all the districts in the country.

The messages written in Sinhala in the chart  says:

  • Gentlemen, who raise the voice for Democracy, will you endorse this?
  • Further examples are not necessary to prove that Sri Lanka has now become a Fascist regime lacking even the basic democratic signs.

Another matter that is strange to find is that the Examination Department announce low cut-off marks to Tamil medium students for Grade V and other examinations whereas Sinhala medium students are subject to higher cut off  marks. What is the rationale in this method? Why all should compel to get same cut off marks?
