Maithri gets first slap in the face from Tamil MPs for his double speaks and double deals : Boycott his Jaffna tour !

(Lanka-e-News - 14.Oct.2017, 11.30PM)  The TNA M.P.s decided yesterday (13) to boycott president Maithripala ‘s tour of Jaffna and Kilinochchi  today (14) . 

The decision to boycott was necessitated because  the president failed  to take action to release the political prisoners,   and the sudden transfer  of three cases pertaining to LTTE suspects heard in the Vavuniya High court to Anuradhapura High court . 

The president is scheduled to travel to Jaffna following an invitation extended to him by R. Sampanthan TNA M.P. to attend the Tamil National conference.
 
The TNA leaders of Jaffna and Kilinochchi taking this decision without the consent of Samapanthan has caused immense embarrassment to the latter. He is in a dire predicament thereby. 

The Jaffna district politicians told the media that they have notified the presidential secretariat about their boycott .However the secretary to Sampanthan revealed the latter is holding discussions with the district leaders to suspend the boycott .

It is worthy of note about 80 % of the people of North cast their votes for Maithripala Sirisena  to elect him as president .
