Chief Minister of the Northern Province, C.V. Wigneswaran, says that solutions to resolve the national problem cannot be achieved through participating in the Parliament Select Committee, sans the implementation of previous proposals.
He made this statement at an event held in Vavuniya on Tuesday.
“Through participation in the Parliament Select Committee, we will be creating a problem for ourselves,” Wigneswaran said.
“There is no doubt about that. Several groups have submitted reports prior to this on resolving the problems of the Tamil people.”
He added: “A solution was put forward in the era of Chandrika Bandaranaike. Tissa Vitharana’s group too put forward a solution. When all these proposals are brought to the fore, we can go to the Parliament Select committee and discuss our problems. I believe that the Tamil people would not oppose it if this were the case. This stance is not the stance of the party. There is no benefit whatsoever in our participation at the Parliament Select Committee sans such a solution. We will end up losing what we have.”
He was speaking at an event organised to provide appointments to employees who served on a temporary basis at the Chettikulam Pradeshiya Sabha.
