A strike was staged in Jaffna today in support of Northern Province Chief Minister C.V.Wigneswaran.
Most shops were closed and public transport was at a standstill in support of the strike.
The strike was staged following moves to remove Wigneswaran as Chief Minister.
The TNA is pushing for the removal of Wigneswaran. The official website of the TNA reported yesterday that Wigneswaran is likely to be removed from office soon by the Ilankai Thamil Arasuk Katchi (ITAK) which fielded him as the Chief Ministerial candidate of the political formation known as the TNA in September 2013.
The website reported that ITAK is seriously contemplating the removal of Wigneswaran as Chief Minister in the context of the current corruption scandal that has rocked the Northern province. (Colombo Gazette)
