Wigneswaran maintains his neutral stand

WigneswaranNorthern Province Chief Minister C V Wigneswaran is maintaining his stand to remain neutral at the Parliamentary elections next week.

In a media statement released yesterday, Wigneswaran said that he took the decision to remain neutral after giving it deep thought and continues to maintain that stand.

He says the Tamil speaking people should vote for the candidates they feel will address their immediate concerns.

Wigneswaran said that he will not urge any Tamil in the North and East to back any particular political party but to instead keep their interests in mind on election day.

However he said the Tamils should also ensure the political party they support is one which will push for self-determination for the Tamils, ensure accountability and justice for the victims of the war and back an international investigation on alleged war crimes.

Wigneswaran contested and won the Northern Provincial Council elections in 2013 while contesting with the Tamil National Alliance (TNA).

The TNA is contesting the Parliamentary election in the Northern and Eastern provinces but Wigneswaran has not taken part in any rally in support of the TNA. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. We do need a good opposition against the TNA, but having idiots against the TNA will backfire on Tamils, Sinhalese and India. The West loves to use idiots everywhere to create chaos to rule the world.

    HOW CAN YOU VISIT THE WEST AND REQUEST THEM TO GET ALL THESE POWERS AND DEVIDE THE COUNTRY??? U DIRTY TAMIL BASTERED, U WILL END UP IN HELL!!!!!

  3. “Neutral” Wigneswaran’s Statement Shows Tilt Towards radical Tamil National Peoples’ Front (TNPF)

    This world has limited resources. Therefore smart and talented people take most of the resources to have a better life. How naive those foolish Tamils, Sinhalese, and Muslims; they dream to live like the Westerners, Japanese and Singaporeans 😉

  4. “Thankless” Wigneswaran is either in the payroll of Rajapakse or is suppoting Tiger Diaspora or is looking after the interest of Vasudeva. All in all he has changed and has become a politician who cannot be trusted by democracy loving Tamils. He has become a TRAITOR of TAMILS.

  5. He can not talk about younger generation. First. He has to resign and talk about that. He him self as old to become leader

  6. Mr. Wigneswaran is doing the right thing under the current circumstances where TNA is just hoodwinking the Tamil people promising a Federal System of Government. All the Sinhalese political parties have openly stated in their manifesto that they are opposed to a federal system. But TNA is cheating gullible voters by unscrupulously promising an unrealistic goal.
    Federal Party and TULF had all along demanded a federal system since 1956, but history has it that it was not achievable under a unitary system, and successive governments including governments that had the backing of Tamil parties did not favour this. Now TNA is using all its tactics to win the votes based on speculations and assumptions rather than fact. How TNA is going to achieve its goal of a federal government and what its real position on UN war crimes inquiry is murky.

  7. Vote for the UNP. The UNP has many short-comings but the only party that will keep the UPFA out. The UPFA will be a disaster for all, unless you want a forceful partition like Cyprus, Kosovo etc.
