The May Day meeting of TNPF was held at the “ Col. Kiddu Park” yesterday.
Speaking there, the Leader of the TNPF, Gajendrakumar Ponnampalam said, we expected that the TNA will correct itself after they lost around 200,000 votes from their traditional vote bank. It is our foolishness to think like that. They will never correct themselves.
Even after that great set back, the TNA and the toady political parties and the parasite armed groups operating with them formed alliances with Sinhalese chauvinist parties for the sole purpose of defeating the TNPF.
Continuing further he said , we have some important responsibilities as far as the Tamil Nationalism is concerned. Our organization is vigorously pursuing these responsibilities. Our activities will be in the form of bringing out the day to day problems of the Tamil people and finding solutions to them through the members and candidates of Local Government Bodies.
The TNA and other parties have decided to exclude Tamil Nationalism from the Tamil Nationalist politics. If this happens we will be pushed in to a position of accepting all what we have rejected for the last 70 years.
Parties that were nurtured in the Tamil National heredity have Rejected Lion flag, view the Independence Day as a day of oppression on Tamil people and rejected south-centered chauvinist parties.
On the contrary Sampanthan held the National flag in the NUP’s May Day meeting in Jaffna in 2012. This is a planned act to make the Tamil people to forget the above three things, he said.
