* Coalition partner criticizes Sri Lankan government for not acting against the Tamil party
Fri, Apr 25, 2014, 07:45 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 25, Colombo: A coalition partner of the Sri Lankan government , the National Freedom Front (NFF) has faulted the government for not taking any action against the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) for attempting to divide the country.

NFF Spokesperson Mohamad Muzammil said the TNA was trying to get Tamil youths to tie cyanide capsules around their necks again. He accused the Tamil party of trying to instil racial hatred among the Tamil youths in the North.

In a media statement the party spokesperson explained that while the TNA has accused the government of falsely propagating a notion of the resurgence of the LTTE to fortify its military presence in the North after eliminating the LLTE in 2009, the TNA has not given up on its attempt to divide the country.

As a result of TNA's divisive actions, the terrorist organization is attempting to come back, Muzammil charged.

According to Muzammil, the government has failed to take action against the activities of the TNA that are most often in violation of the Constitution.

He urged the government to take action according to the Constitution against the Tamil party without delay and warned that if not, inevitably the country will be a battle field again.
