Ananthy Sasitharan responds to ITAK ‘interdiction’ letter

[TamilNet, Monday, 02 February 2015, 21:04 GMT]
Northern Provincial Councillor Ananthy Sasitharan has requested the leadership of Ilangkai Thamizh Arasuk Kadchi (ITAK) to provide evidence in the form of records of debates, decisions and the names of participants to document that a democratic decision was arrived at before Mr R. Sampanthan went public on 03 January 2015 with the decision to explicitly support a particular candidate in the SL presidential elections. Ms Ananthy Sasitharan further stated that she had articulated her stand according to her conscience, protecting the decades-long fundamental principles of the Tamil politics and in the belief that internal democracy existed within the party.

However, the letter of interdiction has proved that her belief of internal democracy was wrong, Ananthy has said in her letter.

The letter, dated 20 January 2015, was leaked to media by ITAK sources in Jaffna.

In her letter, Ananthy has also requested the ITAK leadership to send her a copy of the constitution of the ITAK together with the charge sheet.

The letter was addressed to the General Secretary of ITAK with copies to ITAK leader Mavai Senathirajah, Vice President of ITAK Professor S.K. Sitrampalam and the Chief Minister of Northern Provincial Council C.V. Wigneswaran.

In the meantime, informed ITAK sources told TamilNet that an interdiction letter sent by post to ITAK Youth Wing leader VS Sivakaran in Mannaar has returned undelivered.
