Sampanthan says will ask North CM to explain

sampanthanOpposition and Tamil National Alliance (TNA) leader R Sampanthan says he will seek an explanation from Northern Province Chief Minister C V Wigneswaran over some comments he had made which went against the stand of the TNA.

Sampanthan said that he had remained silent since the UN Human Rights Council was meeting in Geneva and Sri Lanka was being discussed.

However now that the UNHRC session is over Sampanthan said that he will look to meet Wigneswaran and seek an explanation over the comments he had made.

Wigneswaran had refused to back the TNA at the last Parliamentary election despite the TNA playing a big role to make him the Northern Province Chief Minister.

C.V. Wigneswaran had also made comments critical of the party and had also contradicted the position the TNA took on the resolution on Sri Lanka submitted in Geneva. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Sampanthan along with Sumanthiran and Mavaisenathirajah has started to act alone without consulting party members. Sampanthan should also have talked to the media his stand on the resolution. Sampanthan and his duo were silent to unknown reason Wigneswaran talked to the media and he let the media his stand on the resolution regardless. Without transparency, democracy won’t work.
