Former Northern Province Chief Minister C.V Wigneswaran has urged Tamils not to back former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
Rajapaksa has been picked as the Presidential candidate of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP).
Wigneswaran said that he cannot understand why Gotabaya Rajapaksa was picked as the Presidential candidate.
He noted that Gotabaya Rajapaksa is determined to establish a Sinhalese Buddhist only country and will go to any lengths to do that.
Wigneswaran said that he has never backed Rajapaksa and will urge all Tamils to vote against him at the elections.
