The Democratic People’s Front (DPF) says that the results of the recently concluded local government elections in the North indicated that the Tamil people needed political power to make their own decisions to develop their regions.
DPF Leader Mano Ganeshan said in a statement that the Tamil people have rejected the development decisions made inColombo.
He said that the government played the development slogan explicitly in its campaign in the North and Minister Wimal Weerawansa openly said they wanted the Tamils on their side in the East, in order to face the international community.
Ganeshan observes the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) had repeatedly said it was prepared to share power within a united Sri Lanka and that the Tamil people in the North and East have agreed with the TNA position by rejecting government overtures and positions at last Saturday’s local government elections.
The DPF supported the election campaign of the TNA at the recently concluded local government elections.
