Support for Budget as a goodwill gesture, TNA announces in Parliament

The Northern and Eastern Provinces are totally neglected in this budget. Although the Tamil people are worried about the budget and the MPs are dissatisfied we are supporting the budget as a goodwill measure, said Mawai Senathyrajah, while speaking in the 8th day debate on budget.

We were not consulted prior to the budget. We were not consulted over our needs and problems. This Government is also following the former government in excluding the elected representatives of the Tamil people.

 In the context of Donors Conference is to be held, we insists thatthe government consult uson our priortity needs and problems, he said.
