Wigneswaran notes differences of opinion with UN official

Northern Province Chief Minister C V Wigneswaran noted he had differences of opinion with Subinay Nandy, the former United Nations Country Representative for Sri Lanka.

Wigneswaran says the differences of opinion arose as Nandy had pushed him to fall in line with the Government.

“We were not prepared to do so,” Wigneswaran said.

He said this when he met the UN country team headed by Una McCauley, the current UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative.

Wigneswaran says the perceptions of the Northern Provincial Council were not taken into consideration by Subinay Nandy.

“We had told Mr. Nandy that many matters that needed consideration by the UN at that time were not considered by him,” Wigneswaran said. (Colombo Gazette)
