Leader of the TNA, Era Sampamthan accepted a decision by the ITAK’s Provincial Council Members, not take any responsibility in the NPC Cabinet, but warned them that they should not cause any hindrance or sabotage the activities until such time the Political solution package is made public. The decision will be discussed in the Politburo to be held in Vavuniya soon and a decision may be taken there to announce the decision taken in Jaffna as a Party decision.
Earlier, it was accused that the CM attempt to avoid ITAK in his selection to the Cabinet. Angered by his attempt, the ITAK members of the NPC held a meeting and took a decision, not to take any responsibility in the NPC Cabinet.
When they intimated this decision to Sampanthan he did not accept it immediately but called the members to Colombo for a discussion on the decision. Accordingly, 10 of the 15 ITAK members met him in Colombo and the other 5 had send explanations for not attending the meeting.
