Very few say Sumanthiran is a traitor, Sampanthan flares up

Party members who got only 15,000 votes are saying that Sumanthiran, who got more than four times their votes, is a traitor said Sampanthan yesterday in Parliament. Persons who were rejected by the people are saying that Sumanthiran who received the mandate of the people, is a traitor, said the Leader of the Opposition.

Sumanthiran is providing valuable service to the people. We should appreciate him. People who were rejected by the people were calling Sumanthiran a traitor to hide their shortcoming.

The president and the prime Minister should understand that we have to engage in politics among these people. An inquiry  should be held on the threat made to Sumanthiran and persons connected to should be brought before the court , he said.
