    Yes, the Governor might have to treat him as having vacated post, perhaps!

    His first task is to remove the military from northern province.
    His second task is to get all the lands acquired by government back and give it to the owners.
    His third task is to establish a new police department and catch all the culprits who are involved in degrading our traditions. This includes sex workers, drug dealers etc. This is necessary in order to safeguard our valuable cultural values.

    Now he's the best answer to the voices of discrimination against Tamils. He was raised in Colombo, studied at best government school Royal college, got educated and became a lawyer and rose and got appointed to Supreme Court, the Highest Apex Body of court of law - all being a Tamil. So where is the discrimination agaisnt Tamils???

    Hon CV Vigneswaran, C.M.,
    Congratulations. You have tremendous responsibility to put the life of northerners back in track. As a first step , you may form a committee to report you on what took place during the last phase of the war in the north province . And you may use all your powers to bring any wrong doers to the books and let the justice prevail in north again. Hope you will do it .

    Weerawansa now what are you going to talk. Man without knowing the truth, please don't utter bull shit, saying that Vigneswaran wilt face the Governor etc., Don't try to fool others and finally you fool yourself.

    people keep confidence in Mr Vigneshwaram as a moderate person who will bring about the burning issues ahead of reconciliation. but from the way he spoke about Prabha and Keppetipola Disawe made me to brand him also to yet another ordinary Tamil politician who does not want get any solution.
