15-signature petition to counter CV’s no-faith motion

16 June 2017 10:24 am - 16     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


A petition signed by 15 members of the Northern Provincial Council (NPC) to counter the No Confidence Motion submitted against Chief Minister C.V. Vigneswaran, was handed over to Governor Reginald Cooray last night.

A group of NPC members including Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Councillor M.K. Shivajilimgam had handed over the petition.

The councillors told the Governor that Mr. Vigneswaran should continue as the Chief Minister.  

However, the Governor’s office said no affidavit was found attached with the last night’s motion but 15 affidavits had been attached to the no-faith motion submitted against the Chief Minister.

The No Confidence Motion was signed by 21 provincial councillors. (By Romesh Madushanka)

    Don't worry still CM did not die, he will only resign and go home.

    Best thing is he should join UNP and work as a Secretary to PM.

    Mr. Wigneswaran should consider giving a chance to another Tamil leader who can work with the Centre in a spirit of cooperation..

    The CM should resort to a step by step process of seeking solution since he is a new player in the game and prejudice as well. via DM Android App

    15 against 21 still 6 short, means CM should go out.

    Already allegations are set against CM for keeping close links with MR and planning to topple the government, now his own people are against with him. so ???? better quit.

    15 who supported are LTTE supporters, never accept their petitions, Hon. Governor, CM should pack his bags by now.

    Wigneswaran always talk about Jaffna Tamils and never cares for the Tamils in Colombo and Up-country, get out man.

    Correct, Wigneswaran is an image of Praba, that is why he only talks for Northern Tamils.

    Kokki your comment is the reality. Thanks Sir.

    From the very beginning we told that Wigneswaran is not suitable to be the CM, he is with a Shadow Prabagaran (Sivajilingam). SriLanka don't need LTTE followers, we need only SriLankan Lions not Tigers.

    Bubble Banda Saturday, 17 June 2017 09:24 AM

    CM Wigneswaran should publicly come on State TV and say that he is against LTTE and support the Govt. Then he can remain as a CM, other-wise he should get out for good.

    Mr. Wicky is the most dangerous separatist after Prabakaran. He should go.
