Dec 31, Colombo: The Sri Lankan government is planning to bring a proposal in the parliament to oust a Tamil MP from parliament, a Sinhala daily The Divaina reported today.
A two-third majority is needed to oust an elected MP and the government has the sufficient majority in the parliament.
According to the report, the Jaffna district parliamentarian of major Tamil party, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) S. Sritharan is under government's concern for his continuing involvement in anti-government activities and efforts to arouse communal unrest in the North.
State intelligence services have reported that the MP is inflaming communal sentiments in the North and creating trouble, the newspaper reported.
The MP Sritharan recently accompanied a Tamil Nadu journalist, who was arrested by the police for photographing military camps in Jaffna while traveling in MP's car. The MP was accused of inviting the Tamil journalist, who came under a tourist visa.
Former Jaffna leader of Tamil Tiger terrorist movement, Theepan was a close relative of MP Sritharan, according to the report.
Last month justifying the LTTE's cause as a freedom struggle, Sritharan praised the former Tamil Tiger terrorist leader, Velupillai Prabhakaran on his birth anniversary in parliament amidst protests by governing party members.
