TNA grooming Sumanthiran for party leadership

By Dinasena Ratugamage

Jaffna District TNA parliamentarian E. Sarawanabhawan, yesterday, said that the party was grooming M. A. Sumanthiran to be the new leader of the party.

Sarawababhawan said that R. Sampanthan was a great leader, but as he was not in the best of health and the party members were of the view that he should be made the patron of the party.

Although the next TNA leader should be Mavai Senathiraja according to seniority, for health reason, he wanted Sumanthiran to take over the party leadership, Sarawanabhawan said.

The TNA would take up the matter for discussion at its next meeting, Sarawanabhawan said.
