We will not sign any MoU with any government unless they committed to solving the national question.
(February 13, 2018, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) While talking to Sri Lanka Guardian, Parliamentarian M. A. Sumanthiran affirmed that there is no truth behind the news widely spreading by stating that the TNA is (Tamil National Alliance) preparing to sign the Memorandum of Understanding ( MoU) with the United National Party (UNP/UNF) to secure the majority in the parliament if the UPFA/SLFP annul their political cohabitation with UNP.
“We will not sign any MoU with any government unless they committed to solving the national question. We will continue to sit as the opposition in the parliament,” M. A. Sumanthiran, told Sri Lanka Guardian.
“But, if there is a national need we will definitely support the government while sitting in the opposition for the benefits of the public,” he added.
