Leader of Opposition in Sri Lankan Parliament Ranil Wickramasinghe said today that he was disappointed over the election process to the Northern Provincial Council polls in his country.

"We are disappointed," Wickramasinghe told reporters at the airport, adding, the demand of the opposition parties to post election observers for the provincial elections has not been met. "Also, we are disappointed as a civilian has not been made the Governor. We did not expect a person from military background," he said.

In reply to a question, the Sri Lankan leader said not only Tamils, but other sections of the Lankan society like Muslims and Sinhalese faced problems and "that is why we are campaigning for National Elections next year," he said.

According to Sri Lankan media reports, Wickramasinghe, who is on a three-day tour of India, will hold talks with Congress and opposition BJP leaders besides top government officials in New Delhi.

An elected council for the Northern Province in Sri Lanka was among the measures for devolution of power contemplated under the 13th amendment to the Sri Lankan Constitution. The amendment was introduced after the 1987 Indo-Lanka Accord.

The ruling United People's Freedom Alliance, the main opposition United National Party and the Tamil National Alliance are the major contestants in the elections to the Northern Provincial Council. (PTI)

    We the Sri Lanka masses are very very disappointed with the polls process within the UNP. Please GO GO for the sake of the people and the party.

    What the hell are you doing in India if poll process is bad. You have to be in Sri Lanka talking to the massed to win elections. Indians do not vote for elections in Sri Lanka. What a sad fellow this fellow is.

    It is not the poll process you need to be concern but how to win people's confidence to win a election.

    Correct, this man is really a clown and a boneless human, shameful.
