Karuna’s support for Mahinda worked against him.

FB_IMG_1541295234555-600x378Former Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) Vice President Vinayagamoorthi Muralitharan alias Karuna Amman says that the discussions held with the Tamil National Alliance (TNA), which aimed at obtaining TNA members’ support for Mahinda Rajapaksa to form a new government, were unsuccessful.

He made this statement responding to inquires about his tweet which said that he’s holding discussions with few TNA members with the support of diaspora.

He stated that although he requested TNA members to accept ministerial portfolios and serve Tamil people, they refused it.

TNA MP Mavai Senathirajah refuses this statement, and says that they have no political commitment with Karuna Amman and did not hold any discussions.
