  1. Northern Province Chief Minister C V Wigneswaran doesn’t know how to deal with issues. He shouldn’t have gone to the foreign power to deal with local issues. This shows he doesn’t have the ability to solve disputes. Not only him, Tamils are generally like this. I have been exploring Jaffna in many ways during the last 12 months. I found that Tamils’ don’t have conflict resolution skills. This must be addressed in primary school level, otherwise it will cost the country again.
