The United National Party (UNP) Working Committee (WC) is to make the final decision on former State Minister Vijayakala Maheswaran when it meets next month, UNP Chairman Kabir Hashim said yesterday.

Speaking to journalists, Mr Hashim said the WC was informed that

Ms Maheswaran would be summoned for questioning by the party soon. “Action will be taken thereafter,” he said.

Former State Minister Vijayakala Maheswaran was at the centre of a controversy after she called for the resurgence of LTTE recently.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had informed the working committee that the provincial council election could be held in December if the polls for councils other than the North are to be held while it could be held in January next year if it involves all the provincial councils.

This was the response of the PM when the members of the working committee stressed that the election should be held as soon as possible. The party had also decided that the election should be held under the present proportional representation system.

UNP Spokesman Harin Fernando, who spoke to the media, confirmed that the working committee had discussed the conducting of the provincial council election as well as the development programmes of the government including the Gam Peraliya programme.

The working committee had also decided to look into the possibility of increasing Samurdhi benefits to the people. (Yohan Perera)

    Opportunists like V should be exposed and punished.If she really believes in what she had said,she should resign from UNP and join TNPF.

    This is all a lot of BS. The lady has been expelled from the party which means she has also lost her ministerial title and privileges. Since her public comments has been found inflammatory, let the CID handle it from there after.

    Can everyone take a step back.Yes, she made an inflammatory comment. Did we give her the chance to explain herself?Would she be regretting what she said and willing to apologize?I think that's the result we should strive.Afterall, we have to live together.
