The Chairman of Federation of National Organisations spoke out against the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and slammed the concept of federalism, reports The Island.
Gunadasa Amarasekera, who is also president of the Patriotic National Movement, said “federalism will be a stepping stone to Eelam”.
Speaking at a news conference, Mr Amarasekara warned against voting for the United National Party (UNP) saying “with the kind of pressure mounting on Sri Lanka the separatists will achieve what they dream of if Ranil Wickremesinghe and the UNP are voted into power".
Comparing the situation in Sri Lanka to that of Kosovo and South Sudan, Mr Amarasekara went on to add "the TNA manifesto clearly spells out that it is advocating separatism and whether Ranil likes it or not, the TNA will do what it wants with the help of the international community”.
