Divergent packages for political solution detrimental to Tamils: Segu Dawood

Sri Lanka Muslim Congress Chairman Basheer Segu Dawood has cautioned moves by the Tamil People’s Council to present a political package while Tamil National Alliance has already arrived at a consensus with minority parties on the issue.

He was addressing a meeting held to remember former Senator Late Mashoor Maulana at Eravoor Vavykaraiora Siruvar Poonga under the patronage of the Eravoor Asraff Natpany Mantram. President of the Mantram Muhaideen Bawa presided.

He went on that any division among Tamil parties and Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and Tamil Peoples’ Council (TPC)  forwarding two divergent proposals can be detrimental to the cause of the minorities. We must all unite under one umbrella and state our position in one voice to find a political solution.He added that at a juncture when two majority parties in unison put forward proposals, we find Tamil parties are all of a sudden divided and raise views in two divergent notes. This is a serious development for minorities.
