TNA to boycott Independence Day celebrations

The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has decided to boycott Independence Day celebrations in protest of the government’s alleged plan to suppress the Tamil community, party officials told the Daily News yesterday.

The Alliance requested the public to raise black flags on Independence Day in protest against the government.

Officials said that the government, with the intention of exerting pressure on the Tamil community, has forcibly acquired lands in the Northern and Eastern provinces.
