Tamil National Alliance (TNA) leaders will leave for India today on an invitation from Home Minister P. Chidambaram.
The six-member delegation, led by TNA Parliamentary Group Leader R. Sampanthan, during its three-day visit will meet Mr. Chidambaram, top officials and the main opposition Bharatiya Janatha Party (BJP) leaders. A meeting with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will depend on his availability.
“The delegation will mainly discuss the resettlement process in the north and India’s offer to build 50,000 houses for the displaced,” TNA Parliamentarian Mavai Senadhirajah, a member of the delegation, said. He said India would also donate 500 tractors and vehicle equipment for the resettled families.
The delegation will also include Suresh Premachandran, Selvam Adaikalanathan, A. Vinayagamoorthy and M. Sumanthiran.
