The Tamil People’s Council chaired by NP Chief Minister C.V. Wigneshwaran had issued a press notice informing that they are rejecting the report of the subcommittee of the steering committee appointed for drafting the New Constitution.

The press notice states that the proposed New Constitution has been prepared with much alignment towards Sinhala Buddhist opinion, and the government should clearly indicate its position in solving the problems faced by the Tamil People and include such decisions in the proposed Constitution.

The interim report had shown that all are considered as Sri Lankans, but it has failed to recognize the rights of the Tamil people.

Therefore, the New Constitution should consider the Tamil Nationals as a separate unit and formulate the changes accordingly. Finding a solution only through the sovereignty of the Tamil Nationals would usher in peace and in drafting a New Constitution they are expecting the intervention of the International community as well, the news notice further states.

    Absolutely right. Who is going to educate the majority politicians and the bikkus that in SL there are two major languages, religion,culture,ethnicity and traditional living areas. Until and unless SL realises that the North and East are traditional living areas for Tamil speaking people SL is not going to settle in peace. Send the Sinhala politicians and bikkus to western world for political education. They are presently like frogs in a well. Do they know in UK there are four states in one country. I bet they don't. In SL there should be two states in one country. Simple as that. Rita

    This is a racial comment! It is common sense that our island cannot be divided and cannot be compared to any developed country or any country for that matter! The tamil leeches need to understand that. If they want a separate state, they should go to tamil nadu! Simple as that!

    Dear CV stop criticising each and everything. There is famous saying "too much of something is good for nothing". Try and build unity keep your thoughts as citizens of one country and move on. We can't go to the past and I doubt the majority of our country wants to do do either

    Is he talking for all the Tamils or only the Jaffna Vellalas. Pl. remember more than 50% of Tamils live in Sinhala areas. His racist attitude will not solve any problem.

    It's the politician who sabotage the peace in the country and that's the plain truth!
