Nov 04, Colombo: Tamil National Alliance Batticaloa district parliamentarian S. Viyalendran, who defected to the United people's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) government accepting a ministerial portfolio has been sacked from the party.

The Illankai Tamil Arasu Kachchi (ITAK), the main constituent of the TNA has decided to terminate the membership of Viyalendran in the party after he crossed over to the Rajapaksa led government.

Jaffna District TNA MP Siddharthan had reportedly informed the political wing of People's Liberation Organization of Tamil Eelam (PLOTE), Democratic People's Liberation Front (DPLF) sacking newly appointed Deputy Minister.

Viyalendran took oath as the Deputy Minister of Regional Development (Eastern Development) before President Maithripala Sirisena yesterday (03).

The TNA said "We strongly oppose and condemn Tamil National Alliance Member of Parliament being a part of this conspiracy,"

Meanwhile, the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) said yesterday that they will vote in support of the No Confidence Motion to be brought against the Government headed by Mahinda Rajapaksa, who has been "unconstitutionally and illegally" appointed as Prime Minister.
