LatestLeader of the Opposition as well as leader of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA), R. Sampanthan in an interview with the Hindu at his Colombo residence, weighs in on the government’s performance, particularly on promises made to the Tamils and also reflects on the future of Tamil politics. President Sirisena had been involved with Tamil politics even before he stood for election. He was one of the strongest supporters of a just and reasonable solution to the Tamil question. The Constitution process commenced in 2016 to evolve a reasonable political solution to the national question and considerable work has been done. Could you comment on how the imminent local elections may impact Tamil politics and national politics?
