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

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

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

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

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

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

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?

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.

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

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.

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