The General Secretary of the Illankai Thamil Arasu Kadchi (ITAK), Mavai Senathrajah, MP, said that the party wished all Sri Lankans, particularly those who had suffered as a result of the conflict, would find peace and prosperity with the permanent resolution of the ethnic problem in the New Year paving the way for self-rule in the merged North-east within a united Sri Lanka.

A unanimous resolution taken at the Central Working Committee meeting of the ITAK on Friday called upon the government not to delay forwarding a Power-sharing Agreement with Police and Land powers for self rule within a merged autonomous region of North-East within a united Sri Lanka, during the next discussions to take place with the Government and the TNA scheduled for January 17, 18 and 19 2012.

When the Central Working Committee of the ITAK presided by Leader MP R. Sampanthan meet at his Trincomalee residence several decisions and resolutions were unanimously adopted following deliberations which commenced at 10.30 am and continued till 5.30 pm

It was decided that the TNA would form a Tamil Secretariat into which all Tamil Parties would be brought together into an Alliance for the ITAK for the annual convention to be held on February 24, 25 and 26 in the Batticaloa district.
