Wigneswaran said that he is scheduled to meet the President and Prime Minister on April 18 to discuss his concerns.
Among the issues he hopes to raise at the meeting is the occupation of civilian land by the army in the North.
Wigneswaran told the Northern Provincial Council today that the army was in the North, not for National Security but for other reasons.
He claims the army has been placed in the North to safeguard the Sinhalese communities in the area, including Sinhalese fishermen who travel by boat from the South to catch fish in the Northern seas. (Colombo Gazette)
