Parliament sittings were suspended a short while ago after the government opposed the adjournment debate proposed by TNA leader R. Sampanthan regarding the land issue in the north.

The government said the issue could not be debated since there was a pending court case.

Deputy Speaker ChandimaWeerakkody suspended sittings and called for a party leaders meeting to discuss if the debate could proceed.

    democracy in the Miacle of Asia.

    It is good to debate. Let TNA explain after war what is north. Parliament can not vote such constitutional issues without the consent of people.

    sunil21 Thursday, 08 August 2013 10:46 AM

    the north is looking for what others enjoying since 1987.
    it's a clear descrimination to the people of north
    all should treated same

    India has not separated into various countries because the States had Police and land powers. Even in England Police are under the county councils.

    This old block is crazy. This type of old blocks should retire now.

    raj Thursday, 08 August 2013 11:15 AM

    And you say there is no discrimination of the Tamil people.

    raj Thursday, 08 August 2013 11:18 AM

    The land powers are already in the Constitution. The constitution needs to be implemented without any discrimination. The constitution guarantees equality.

    raj Thursday, 08 August 2013 11:18 AM

    Tel that to the people of Welweriya

    Consent of the people does not mean that majority can decide what minority wants. The northern areas are historically tamil speaking areas and the Jaffna Tamils are a distinctive indegenous population with roots in the north. Thus they have the right to administrate their own areas according to their culture and future. Would you be happy if a gang of Jaffna Tamils are manning police stations and administrating areas in sinhalese areas down south like Galle, Matara and even Hambantota?

    Isuru Thursday, 08 August 2013 11:49 AM

    Land and police powers should not be given to the provincial councils.

    Kalu Banda Thursday, 08 August 2013 11:57 AM

    When did courts deter this parliament ? - Ha Ha when it suits them the courts have to respected when not, ignore the courts - What hipocracy !

    This country is already divided between those with power and the rest

    Anton Thursday, 08 August 2013 12:15 PM

    This is not about land/police powers. It is about government grabbing peoples land without proper compensation.

    Sanjaya Friday, 09 August 2013 11:38 AM

    The day these powers are given to them, not the country, Sinhalese, but the innocent Tamils are in trouble.

    Saskia Thursday, 08 August 2013 09:35 AM

    Well done TNA. Don't rest until you get those land and police power according to the 13A. As possible, involve the international community when SL government does not give those power. Upcoming common wealth will be the best place to bring this issue.

    Boobamba Thursday, 08 August 2013 09:41 AM

    If Sri Lanka needs to be remained as an undivided country then the land and police should not be vested upon Northern Provincial Council.

    PRASANNAJIT Thursday, 08 August 2013 09:57 AM

    Keep it suspended forever.
