ITAK is taking action for MP, Thurairatnasingam to resign and his seat be assigned to its Thenmaradchchi Organizer Arunthavapalan. In the context of the LG Elections to be held soon, the party has planned to appoint an MP to Thenmaradchchi in order to attract the people of Thenmaradchchi.
The task of effecting the change has been handed over to the Secretary of the ITAK, Thurairajasingam. It is notable that during the last parliamentary elections, rumours were circulating that intrigues were staged at the counting station to exclude Arunthavapalan, who was legitimately elected in order to accommodate a person favoured by ITAK leadership.
Neutral Analysts said that, this attempt has an ulterior motive of alienating the Thenmaradchchi voters behind Arunthavapalan from other parties or factions.
