Northern Province Chief Minister C. V. Wigneswaran had become nothing but a ghost, who instigated disharmony between the Tamil and Sinhala communities in the country, Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara said today.
Addressing the weekly Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) media briefing, the Sports Minister requested Tamil people in the North to come forward against the Chief Minister’s racist statements, which posed a threat to national harmony.
He said law makers couldn’t come forward and speak of power devolution concerning the North, due to the racist statements made by the Chief Minister.
“Wigneswaran is making statements which are harmful to national harmony,” he said.
“He is trying to convey a message to the international community saying that power devolution is not an option for Sri Lanka because of the Sinhala people. But the Chief Minister doesn’t think about the harm he is causing to the country because of his statements,” he said.
“Mr. Wigneswaran has joined hands with the LTTE, its sympathizers and NGOs, to destroy the country’s harmony,” Minister Jayasekara said.
“Hence as Ministers we cannot come forward as people with backbones, because we have to think twice before making statements about power devolution,” the Minister added. (Chaturanga Pradeep)

Sampanthan wanted a solution within a unitary framework. That is very reasonable but Wigneswaran is playing to diasporas gallery. Dayasiri is spot on. via DM Android App

What are you thinking twice? How long you are going to think to devolve the power?

Ha, haa...First study the Lanka politicians and then comments. The guys like Dayasri have become saints suddenly. The government has JO and MR to refuse what are requested by Sambandan and in turn Sambandan has Viki to demand what was refused. Both side show others as ghosts to their galleries. So Viki is to South and MR is to North.

Once you all devolve the powers meaningfully , nobody will grumble ,even if they grumble ,majority of Tamil population will never either heed them or go behind them ,so yo too do not have to worry much
