Wigneswaran visits Buddhist Temple to back reconciliation

wigNorthern Province Chief Minister C V Wigneswaran visited the Naga Vihara Temple in Jaffna today to show support to the decision taken by the Government to sing the National anthem in Tamil at the Independence day event at Galle Face yesterday.

Speaking to reporters at the Temple, Wigneswaran said that if the Sinhalese people take one step forward and move towards the Tamils then the Tamils will take ten steps forward towards the Sinhalese community.

“We are very happy that the National anthem was sung in Tamil yesterday,” Wigneswaran said.

The Northern Province Chief Minister said that while singing the National anthem was a small gesture it went a long way. (Colombo Gazette)
