The Police saying there is a threat to Sumanthiran's life is a ploy to station the army permanently, the Northern Province Chief Minister C.V.Wigneswaran said.
He said so when queried about the death threat on TNA Parliamentarian, Sumanthiran, and the arrest of former combatants.
H said that the Police had taken steps regarding it. But they had not informed Courts about the death threat to the parliamentarian.
"The Police had told Courts that those arrested had drugs in their possession. However they had not notified Courts about the death threat. If there were any truth in the allegation , they should have notified so," the CM said.
"We have to find out to what extent it is true. Following the Police investigations something will be said.One thing we must remember is that from time to time there were death threats or some tension were created. They did this in the case of Kilinochchi Jeyakumari as well," he said.
"I wonder whether the circulation of this kind of rumour is a ruse to station the army permanently in Jaffna,"Mr.Wigneswaran said. (S.Nitharsan)

Taking into consideration the activities of the GOSL in the past, your statement is not a surprise and could be true.

Either he should retire himself, I doubt he is also a power hunger fellow like Mahinda.

Dear CM, You were a respected Justice among the Sinhalese too. When u entered politics we expected you to be different to the other politicians. Now you too been looked as the twisters to hold on to power and perks. It's not very late for u to speak to Ur conscience and regain the glory as a Respected Justice than being a CM and tarnishing your image.

If he sings Sinhalese baila, he is respected by the Sinhalese, but if he voices the concerns of the people who elected him and he represents then he bcomes a traitor, terrorist, jobless old man, terrorist and so on.... When are you Sinhalese going to come out of your primitive thinking?

Neutral man is a myth. Eeveryone is conditioned by past and other thoughts already in the system. So all comment is subjective.
