The TNA has said that, TNA erecting stages and campaigning for Sajith may be one of the reasons for the defeat of Sajith.
MP, S.Sritharan who participated in a Media Conference held in Jaffna yesterday had said so. We announced support for Sarath Fonseka and kept quiet, we announced support for Maithri, but we did not engage in in any campaign for him, but we campaigned stage after stage for Sajith. Propaganda was made in the south that Tamils have got into the arena to show whether Sinhalese or the Tamils are stronger.
Sumanthiran asking the Tamils to “ vote to teach a lesson to Sinhalese” also interpreted in such a way. This poured oil over racist fire. Because of this a hard defeat has been encountered.
The Easter Sunday bombing was shown as detrimental to Sinhala people while all killed persons are Tamil Christians. Even at that time the foundation for this defeat had been laid, in the guise of National Security.
Now that they have won, making all races to enjoy the victory scored will be a suitable for just Politics, he said.
