TNA nomination stirs a hornet’s nest

The prime Tamil political party, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has run into conflict following the nomination of M.K. Sivajilingam of Velvettiturai for the forthcoming Local Government polls, informed sources said.

The TNA spokesman and Jaffna district Parliamentarian Suresh Premachandran and Wanni district Parliamentarian Selvam Adaikalanathan in a media release condemned the decision taken by TNA Jaffna district Parliamentarian and the TNA General Secretary Mavai Senathiraja, over the inclusion of M.K. Sivajilingam as a candidate under the TNA’s party symbol-House.

Parliamentarians Suresh Premachandran and Selvam Adaikalanathan said that the Tamil National Liberation Alliance Leader M.K. Sivajilingam has been absorbed into the TNA by TNA General Secretary Mavai Senathiraja on his own accord.

“He did not discuss the issue with the other members of the TNA. Therefore, an act of this nature will weaken the Tamil National Alliance,” Suresh Premachandran and Selvam Adaikalanathan said.

Tamil National Liberation Alliance leader and former parliamentarian M.K. Sivajilingam has submitted his nomination to contest the Velvettiturai Town Council as a TNA candidate under the party symbol - House.

TNA General Secretary Mavai Senathiraja said that though M.K. Sivajilingam has been fielded to contest Velvettiturai on the TNA ticket, he won’t be considered as a prime candidate.

Meanwhile, the Tamil United Liberation Front leader V. Anandasangaree and PLOTE leader D. Sidharthan have already joined hands with the TNA to contest the forthcoming polls in the North and the East.

The TNA will meet today in Trincomalee at the party leader R. Sambanthan’s residence to discuss matters pertaining to the Local Government polls.
