Tamil Eelam Liberation Organization (TELO) Leader Selvam Adaikalanathan has proposed that Mankulam in Vavuniya be named as the capital of the Northern Province.

Members of the party, which is a coalition partner of the Tamil National Alliance, met yesterday in Vavuniya and agreed to the proposal, a party official said.

    Come on.. Provincial council system is there due to narrow mindedness of communal minded minority politicians who do not want to think as of one country.

    TELO, DONT GET CRAZY IDEAS. THERE SHOULD BE ONLY 1 CAPITAL IN SRI LANKA. NO NORTH CAPITAL, SOUTH CAPITAL, WEST CAPITAL OR EAST CAPITAL,

    PROVINCIAL CAPITAL, not capital of Sri Lanka. Nothing wrong in naming capitals for all provinces including the North. They can have the provincial legislature in that city or town. In fact, Sri Jayawardanapura should not belong to any of the 9 provinces but its own region since it is the nations capital. Examples are Australia (ACT), USA (Washington, D.C.) and many more.

    It is a great idea to have a not crowded under developed and central place as capital for Northern Province. We must encourage others ideas, Colombo still the capital for the country. The country needs expansion for few more cities as Colombo cannot support the growing demand, MR also worked on expanding but it was in a wrong place, if that effort was put in one of the northern part of the country result would have been much different.

    I think this is a good idea. Moving away from Jaffna - where there is too much emphasis and caste differences and all.
