Northern Province Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran in response to a statement made by the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) said yesterday he was bent on national reconciliation and was contributing his mite towards promoting it.

Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) organizer Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe recently claimed that the Chief Minister’s behaviour was a hindrance to national reconciliation and that he was displaying racist and separatist ideologies.

In a letter to Daily Mirror CM said the needs, aspirations and individuality of one’s community was neither separatist nor racist and that he was working with the President, Prime Minister and others in the present Government in promoting national reconciliation.

“The Centre must not undermine the Provincial Administration. Such an observation is factual and relates to the preservation of the powers of the periphery,” he said.

Rejecting the allegation that Mr. Wigneswaran evaded the Chef Ministers’ Conference held in the South, he said health reasons had prevented him from travelling to Hikkaduwa from Jaffna and his inability to do so was conveyed to the organizers.

“Messages in Sinhala and Tamil were sent for inclusion in the Souvenir published. There was no need for me to evade such a meeting since I had already attended a similar meeting in Colombo under the Chairmanship of the President and the Prime Minister," the CM said.

Responding to the allegation that only 20 per cent of the funds allocated for the Northern Provincial Council was spent and the rest had been returned to the Treasury, he said almost 95% of the funds allocated last year were spent.

The Chief Minister said that irresponsible statements by those who hold responsible positions would no doubt be a hindrance to national reconciliation. (Ajith Siriwardana)

    Mr. Vigneswaran you seem only interested to speak to the president or the prime minister This portrays the fact that you want to enhance your image. This is the needs and aspirations of the Tamil people. You are no different from any other politicean who claims to help the people but once your elected all you pokiticeans do is help themselves. via DM Android App

    I like Mr.vigneswaran for his honesty. He openly talks, unlike some of the TNA members. The progress towards reconciliation is too slow. MS and RW have problems in resolving the aspirations of the Tamil people. It should be noted politicians in down South use minority issue for political agenda. The country is in deep trouble financially and these politicians continue to critise the government. We have to work together for betterment of our people.

    The honesty that most Tamil politicians practice is a good lesson for Sinhalese politicians to follow. None of the TNA politicians would be worried to express their opinion between themselves leave alone to RW MS. The JHU of course is a southern political party and thus their culture, racism and dishonesty is a well known fact both locally and internationally.
