S. Vino Noharathalingam statement
I am obliged to clear the doubts and state the truth related to the controversies that had risen following my speech in the Parliament last Thursday. I notice that some media institutions and websites, giving prominence to the speech, have distorted it in an attempt to blemish my firm political stance and that of Tamil National Alliance (TNA). They had, twisting the words and expressions in my speech, said that I am going to join the government.

I condemn and reject this in the strongest terms making myself absolutely clear and assert that there is no truth whatsoever in the distorted reporting.

I have been consistent in raising my voice for my people and to protect and preserve the Tamil Nation. My sincere efforts will continue unwavering without loosing direction. I have, then and now, stuck to the firm political policies of the TNA and Tamil Eealam Liberation Organization (TELO). Under any circumstance, I will not avail myself to be a party to any historical treachery. I have unassailable faith in this conviction.

People living in our country and outside it need not harbour the slightest doubt in my steady conviction. I request them to reject all false propaganda against me. I pledge that I would struggle unrelentingly along with TNA to achieve the political aspirations and the ethnic right of the Tamil Nation.
