Northern Province Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran insisted that the government should re-merge the Northern and Eastern provinces on the basis that they were the cultural homelands of the Tamils.

“The government should take action to re-merge the North and East, the only cultural homelands of the Tamil people,” he told a briefing at the Jaffna Library on Sunday following a meeting of the Tamil People's Council.

Mr. Wigneswaran said Muslims were objecting to the re-merger and the government was making use of it for their advantage and side-stepping the issue. He said the government should be strong enough to overcome any challenges and the Muslim people have no reason to object to the re-merger of the North and East.

“If re-merged, the North and East will not only be culturally secure and power could be devolved in a manner suitable to the provinces through a federal system of administration. This fact should be accepted by the government and the Muslim leaders and the re-merger should be carried out sooner than later,” he said.

"The government has asked the people to submit proposals for a new Constitution in a way that longstanding national question is resolved and for this purpose any allegations of war crimes should be investigated," he said. (Romesh Madusanka)

    Though seemingly a service, in fact this one is doing a disservice to the Tamil Community.

    Hibshim Monday, 08 August 2016 08:33 PM

    Government should be strong even to face challanges from Tamils too not only the Muslims, you have no rights to dictate terms to the Central Government

    malij Monday, 08 August 2016 08:47 PM

    This man is becoming another Prabhakaran.

    extremist Monday, 08 August 2016 09:03 PM

    if this could be done 7 other provinces should be abolished since its cultural homeland of sinhala people. then we have to divide the country into two based on cultural homelands.

    Tamils have every right to dictate to this unpatriotic government because their votes elected these traitors.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Tuesday, 09 August 2016 05:45 AM

    This man seems to be developing into another Prabhakaran with ridiculous demands such as ownership of water when diverted to the North, paying Pooja to Jayalalitha of Tamil Nadu, and now asking for a remerger of the North and East which was demerged on a court order. High time the government puts him in proper place before these outbursts develop into some sort of disaster with communal violence.

    The ghost of Prabhakaren must be haunting him!

    manu Tuesday, 09 August 2016 08:01 AM

    This man is power hungry. Pls. first do your duty in north. This is not your problem.

    True Sinhalese Tuesday, 09 August 2016 08:03 AM

    This is the country of the Sinhalese ... about 76% and you who came from Tamil Nadu are only about 9%. There are no Tamil Cultural homes. The whole of Mother Lanka is in SINHALA CULTURE. Please leave our country to your Tamil Nadu. via DM Android App

    S B lokuge Tuesday, 09 August 2016 08:05 AM

    Obviously Tamils think they can dictate to this puppet government because it is their votes that elected these traitors. They know that My3 and Ranil are scared of emperor Modi and get them what they want.
