Newly elected Jaffna district MP and retired Supreme Court Judge C.V. Wigneswaran yesterday attributed the overwhelming SLPP victory to the recent unity among the Sinhala people and that given the trends, he was not surprised.
Asked whether such unity among the Sinhalese had not been prevalent before, Wigneswaran said that it was a recent development and that he appreciated the unity among the Sinhalese.
The former TNA Chief Minister of the Northern Province said he believed that the SLPP government had the ability to serve the nation and that he would not hesitate to support the positive moves of the government.
He said that after taking oaths as an MP, he would seek a solution to problems faced by the people in the north.
