Jan 14, Colombo: A group of Tamil party allies of Sri Lanka's governing party have decided to submit proposals on behalf of the Tamil people to the parliamentary select committee (PSC) appointed to address the national problems and propose the necessary constitutional amendments.
The major Tamil political party, the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has boycotted the PSC and refused to participate in it in any way claiming the lack of confidence in the government's commitment to address the issues faced by the minority communities in the country.
Governing party ally, the Eelam People's Democratic Party (EPDP) led by Minister Douglas Devananda has now initiated the formation of a Tamil party alliance as an alternative to the TNA.
The EPDP led alliance it is learnt has decided to submit proposals to the PSC.
The alliance will also include Tamil United Liberation front (TULF) led by V. Anandasangaree, Eelam People's Revolutionary Party (Pathmanabha Group) and Sri TELO.
