Political career

At the April 2004 parliamentary election Srikantha was a candidate in Jaffna District but failed to get elected. However, Srikantha entered Parliament in November 2006 following the murder of Nadarajah Raviraj.[1]

In 2010 Srikantha left Tamil Eelam Liberation Organization (TELO) and Tamil National Alliance (TNA). He subsequently formed the Tamil National Liberation Alliance (TNLA) with other dissident members of the TNA.[2] He stood as one of the TNLA candidates in Jaffna District in the April 2010 parliamentary election. The TNLA failed to win any seats in Parliament. In June 2011 TNLA was dissolved and Srikantha rejoined TELO and TNA.[3]
