Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Parliamentarian Mavai Senathirajah stated today that his party would be forced to form a separate Tamil State with the help of the international community provided any party resolved to form a Sinhala dominated state.

He emphasized so in Parliament in response to a comment by National Freedom Front Leader (NFF) MP Wimal Weerawansa that people should come together to safeguard the Sinhala identity and the sovereignty of the state.

“Statements such as these will push the Tamils towards separatism,” said Mr. Senathirajah.

He stated that the TNA was not satisfied with the OHCHR resolution which came out recently.

However his fellow party member Parliamentarian M A. Sumanthiran stated his party would help the government to work on the resolution. “We will wait and see what the government does about it,” he added.
