Coalition govt failed to sufficiently address Tamil issues says TNA

Sri Lanka's coalition government did not sufficiently address the issues faced by the Tamil people, the TNA leader R Sampanthan told the new US ambassador, Alaina Teplitz yesterday. 

Highlighting the issues of political prisoners, disappeared persons, resettlement, military occupation of land and rehabilitation of former cadres Sampanthan told Teplitz that progress had been very slow. 

A sense of disappointment was present among Tamil people, he added, due to the failure to deliver on these issues.
