Sobhitha Thera reveal their positions on TNA leader R. Sambandan’s recent statement that his party wanted federalism.

Secretary of the Patriotic National Movement Wasantha Bandara said, "Federalism will be a stepping stone to Eelam and with the kind of pressure mounting on Sri Lanka the separatists will achieve what they dream of if Ranil Wickremesinghe and the UNP are voted into power."

Addressing a news conference at the PNM headquarters at Borella, Bandara said Sudan and Kosovo had also been divided on the same lines with the support of the international community and Sri Lanka would be no different.

Bandara said the TNA would try to achieve its goal through protests.

"The TNA manifesto clearly spells out that it is advocating separatism and whether Ranil likes it or not, the TNA will do what it wants with the help of the international community.
