Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Leader R. Sampanthan said Tamil political Parties will not try to seek undue advantage from the current political crisis in the country.

He told journalists that Tamil political Parties will not engage in petty politics at a time when the southern political Parties are engaged in a bitter fight for power and the country is in turmoil. 

Sampanthan said that every action and event in the country as well as political decisions should be in line with democracy, law and order and that there should be no killings, arson or property damage during the struggle.

He said Mahinda Rajapaksa, who was hailed by the people of the South as a great hero at the end of the war in 2009, has now been ousted by the same people who hailed him.

He recalled that Tamil people had voted for former Army Chief Sarath Fonseka who was at the helm when the war was won.

He went on to say that what Tamil people want is a political structure that protects the rights of the Tamil people and solves their problems.

However, he stated that the TNA and the Tamil people have never supported the Rajapaksa’s.
