Federalism ideal for multi ethnic country: Thurairasasingam

Ilankai Tamil Arasu Katchi General Secretary K. Thrairasasingam has stated that federalism is the ideal political and constitutional arrangement in multi ethnic country like Sri Lanka. The South must understand this and agree for power sharing.

He made these observations at an election meeting held in Navithanvely in Amparai. TNA Leader R.Sampanthan presided.

Thurairasasingham stated that it is mischievous for certain communal parties and their leaders to say that federalism will lead to division. It will strengthen unity.

Ilankai Tamil Arasu Katchi Leader Thanthai Chelva put forward the demand for federal solution in 1949. Our leadership has been agitating for federalism since to find a political solution, he said.
