TNA urged not to mislead
Tamils at third consecutive
General Secretary of the Tamil United Liberation Front (TULF) V. Anandasangaree yesterday urged the Tamil electorate to vote for incumbent President Mahinda Rajapaksa or Opposition candidate Maithripala Sirisena at the January 8, 2015 presidential election, regardless of the instructions given by the Tamil National Alliance (TNA).
Political veteran Anandasangaree emphasised that every Tamil speaking voter should decide after carefully examining the ground situation without being swayed by the TNA again. "Examine various proposals put forwarded by rival camps that can benefit the country and different ethnic communities."
Former Kilinochchi District MP Anandasangaree was responding to a query raised by The Island in the wake of President Rajapaksa campaigning in one-time LTTE strongholds in Kilinochchi and Mullaitivu on Thursday (Dec 18).
