India, Western powers backing TULF-led alliance – TNPF leader

The leader of the TNPF has accused India and Western powers of creating the political front led by the TULF.

Speaking at a press conference held in Jaffna today, Mr Gajendrakumar Ponnampalam said India and Western powers are hell-bent on preventing the emergence of a strong Tamil political front committed to Tamil nationalism.

It is for this reason that India and Western powers have created the TULF-led political alliance, scuttling efforts to form a strong alternative political front to the TNA, he added.
