The Illankai Thamil Arasu Katchi (ITAK) is yet to take action regarding Eastern Provincial Councilor Anandi Sasitharan, who is also the assistant leader of the party’s women’s wing.  Sasitharan was under threat of disciplinary action after participating in a protest conducted on February 21 in front of the bus depot in Jaffna. She had been seen transporting an effigy of Parliamentarian M.A. Sumanthiran’s to the location of the protest in her vehicle. The effigy was later publically burned by the protestors. 

When contacted, MP and ITAK Leader Mavai Senathirajah said that no action had been taken thus far regarding the issue.  Efforts to contact MP Sumanthiran regarding the issue proved futile.

Meanwhile, The Nation learns that Sasitharan denies involvement in the incident and claims that sections of her own party are trying to sabotage her political career. The protest in question was held demanding answers regarding people who had disappeared, the release of political prisoners and the release of the United Nations report in human rights violations without delay. MP Suresh Premachandran of the Suresh Wing of the Eelam People’s Revolutionary Liberation Front (EPRLF) also participated in the protest.
