The leadership of the TNA was afraid to identify themselves with the Diaspora Tamils. They were afraid they will also be dubbed terrorists. As far I am concerned the ethnic problem should be solved with cooperation of the Diaspora Tamils. They are our strength, said the CM, C.V.Wigneswaran. in reply to a media question.
When asked whether he will form an alliance with Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam and Suresh Prermachandran with backing of TPC, he said no decision on the matter had been taken.
Answering a question about cooperating with Gajendrakumar, an extremist, he said that Gajendrakumar is not an extremist He reflects the opinions of the people. He is not asking for a separate State. He is not calling for violence. We with several others reflect the ideas of people.
