TNA For Talks With SLMC

May 30, 2011 9:05:34 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has said the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) could hold discussions with the TNA leadership instead of participating in the talks between the government and the TNA.

TNA parliamentarian Suresh Premachandran has told the media that the TNA had a good relationship with the SLMC and kept the major Muslim party informed of the developments in the talks between the government and the TNA.

Premachandran made this comment in the backdrop of the SLMC insisting that the party be given an opportunity to represent the Muslim community at the talks on finding a political solution to the ethnic issue between the Government and the TNA.

However, SLMC Chairman, Basheer Segu Dawood while has claimed a stake for the Muslims in the discussion, parliamentarian H. M. M. Harees has said that all efforts made to solve the ethnic issue so far have due to the non inclusion of the Muslim community.
