The Tamil National Alliance has referred to the double standard policy followed by the UNP in addressing problems of the Tamil speaking community.
This reference has been made by TNA Parliamentarian P. Ariyanethrangan. In a special statement to Vasantham TV of the Independent Television Network, he said that the UNP always adhered to a double-standard policy in the resolution of the problems of the Tamil community. UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake had said that a political solution is not essential after the routing of the LTTE. The UNP is solely responsible for the destruction of the Tamil population. It was the UNP which obstructed the implementation of all agreements granting relief to the Tamils in the past. He emphasized that the party should halt their double-standard policy. His opinion was that the UNP should act with responsibility.
