Sri Lanka: Assassination plot a cooked up story – TULF leader

( February 10, 2017, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) “It is a cooked-up story,” said TULF leader V. Anandasangaree when asked to comment about the death threat to TNA Parliamentarian M.A. Sumanthiran.

He said that everyone was aware that the TNA came to power with the support of the LTTE which was a terrorist organisation.

“Do you want us to believe that members of this outfit which brought the TNA into the limelight are trying to assassinate them?”, Anandasangaree asked.

Opposition leader R. Sampanthan and Sumanthiran were working closely with the UNP and it might be a ploy to put into motion something detrimental to the interests of the Tamil speaking people, he pointed-out.

Jaffna media quoted the Northern Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran as saying that it may have been floated by the Government to station military forces in the peninsula.
