Colombo, July 26: The leader of the Tamil Progressive Alliance (TPA), Mano Ganeshan, said here on Tuesday, that his party, which represents the interest of Sri Lankan nationals of Indian origin, will support the Ranil Wickremesinghe government for the sake of national stability.
In view of the necessity to maintain political stability to tackle the economic problems facing Sri Lanka, the TPA will support the government in its efforts to solve pressing issues, he explained.
He appealed to the political parties not to continue playing the politics of opposition.
On joining a national or all-party government, Ganeshan said that neither the TPA nor any other party has received an invitation to join such a government. Reports of the TPA’s decision to join such a government have no basis, he added.
Ganeshan said that the TPA’s aim will be to see that the interests of Sri Lankans of Indian descent are met by the Wickremesinghe government and that in the proposed new constitution their rights are enshrined.
