Kuhanathan – President’s Coordinator of Sri Lanka Freedom Party

Jaffna, 16 January, (

Dish Asia Network (Dan TV) owner S. Kuhanathan – President’s Coordinator of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), is now entrusted by the leadership with the promotion and propagation of the Party in the Jaffna District against the backdrop of the growing Tamil Nationalism in the midst of the Tamils.

Recently, he was at Karainagar, Vaddukoddai along with Minister Mahinda Amaraweera, Secretary General of the UPFA, to participate in the opening up of a SLFP Party branch office at Karainagar and also in the introduction of the SLFP candidates contesting in the local government bodies from that area.

Kuhanathan, a French passport holder earlier worked closely with Retired Maj. Gen. Kapila Hendawitharana, national intelligence chief who was arrest and detention of hundreds of Tamils even after the conclusion of the armed conflict with the LTTE and later for some time, he was one of the Deputy Leaders of All Ceylon Muslim Congress led by Minister Rishad Bathiyudeen, who too opposes Tamil National Alliance and the interest of the Tamils in this country.

Prior to 2009 May, it was widely reported that Kuhanathan was under the control of the LTTE and was reporting on a weekly basis to Thamilini, who was one of the leaders of the political section of the terrorist outfit .

DAN TV operates from Jaffna and the Tamil political parties in the region used to make use of the regional cable TV and advertise their political campaigns, spending millions as advertisement charges.

However, it is now learnt that as the impartiality of the TV is being clouded with the political color of the owner of the TV; several political parties in the North and East are hesitating to advertise mostly in Sun TV section of the regional cable TV, as the owner is a SLFP stalwart with a mission to end the Tamil nationalism in the midst of the Tamils .
