TNA holds opposition leadership while aligning with government: Namal in Jaffna


Parliamentarian Namal Rajapakse has charged that though Tamil National Alliance Parliamentarians occupy the opposition benches and TNA Leader Sampanthan holds the post of the Opposition Leader, it is aligned to the government. It functions as a partner of the consensual government led by President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe.

He made this observation addressing the media at the Jaffna Press Club. During his address to the media, Namal stated that the Tamil National Alliance Leader Sampanthan has always maintained that he would not seek employment for the unemployed youth from the government and that he is fully committed to win political solution for the Tamil people. The irony of it is that Sampanthan has neither found jobs for Tamil youths nor won political solution. TNA functions as a part and parcel of the government.

He cautioned that if a war breaks out again it is the youth that will suffer most and therefore they will not let such a situation to arise again.
