EPDP has done more to Tamils than other Tamil parties: Thavarasa

Oppsition Leader of the Northern Provincial Council S.Thavarasa has stated that the Ealam People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) had done much more to the North and East than the other Tamil political parties.

He said:

“While most Tamil political parties have adopted a confrontational approach in dealing with the government, we have obtained numerous benefits for the people of the North and East by being pragmatic.

Although Tamil political parties even warned of the possibility of another war if their demands and conditions were not met, the EPDP had succeeded in helping the people without antagonising the government unnecessarily.
