Some former members of the Tamil Eelam Liberation Organisation (TELO) headed by N Srikantha, have formed a new anti-Sonia Gandhi Tamil party called Tamil National Liberation Alliance (TNLA) to contest the April 8 Sri Lankan parliamentary elections. Srikantha and the defeated Presidential candidate, K Sivajilingam, told the media here on Monday, that they left the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) because the party had become a puppet of the Indian National Congress led by Sonia Gandhi.

The TNA, they charged, had deliberately failed to bring about a ceasefire in the final stages of the war against the LTTE. They had willfully ignored the help offered by the Tamil Nadu government and the Indian opposition parties to stop the war. The TNLA proposes to fight the forthcoming parliamentary elections in Sri Lanka in alliance with the ultra left and anti-India Left Liberation Front led by Dr Wickramabahu Karunaratne, yet another defeated Presidential candidate.
