TNA May Launch Non-Violent Protest Campaign Against Govt Soon


The Coalition Government of President Maithripala Sirisena and Premier Ranil Wickremesinghe may soon be facing a political challenge from an unexpected quarter namely the Tamil National Alliance(TNA). The TNA regarded as the premier political configuration of the Sri Lankan Tamil people is becoming increasingly frustrated at what it perceives as the slow pace and tardy progress of the Constitution making process. Therefore the TNA is planning to launch a non – violent protest campaign against the UNP- SLFP coalition Govt if it continues to procrastinate and dilly-dally on this issue. If and when matters do reach a point where a political confrontation becomes inevitable, the TNA proposes to embark upon a huge non – violent protest campaign to pressurise the Govt to expedite the making of a new Constitution.
