Sept 13, Colombo: A Tamil minister in the Sri Lankan government says that the major Tamil political party, the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has betrayed the Tamil people in the country.
Leader of the Eelam People's Democratic Party (EPDP) and Traditional Industries and Small Enterprise Development Minister, Douglas Devananda has said that the TNA has betrayed the people in the North to the dollars, euros and pounds of the Diaspora.
Addressing an election rally in the North, the Minister noted that a majority of the TNA leaders visit the North only during election time.
He added that these leaders would return to their luxurious homes in Colombo once the election is concluded.
According to Devananda, the TNA leaders travelled around the world with fabricated stories in order to earn dollars and sterling pounds for their own benefit.
He called on the people in the North not to be misled by statements made by self-centered politicians.
