Wigneswaran Speaks His Mind out on ITAK’s Attitude & Thambu on High-time United Nations Acts on Sri Lanka
CM C.V Wigneswaran said he wouldn’t expect ITAK to invite him as the next CM, as he will not let down the Tamils to support the Sinhalese parties. For the first time he frankly spoke his mind in public.
Thambu Kanagasabai, in his article in Ilankai Tamil Sangam, highlighted the statements made in Geneva by the participants and echoed the feelings of the Tamils that it is high-time for UN to act on Sri Lanka.

TNA is clever in controlling all the LGs with the assistance of EPDP and Sinhala parties. the latest was the Mannar Town Council. They don’t believe in joining the Tamil party TNPF, as their aim is to kill TNPF. TNA does’t mind the Sinhalese parties growing. It is the least interested in the welfare of the people and, believe it or not, Sampanthan is the most senior Tamil politician, with a wide range of experience. He knows best what the Tamils need.
This treacherous Sinhalese governor of the Northern Province, Reginald Cooray levelled corruption charges against the three newly NPC members. He didn’t mention who the members are or what are the accusations against them.
