COLOMBO (News 1st); Head of the Tamil Makkal Thesiya Kuttani (TMTK) C. V. Wigneswaran has told the President that they will support the Government from the Opposition, until a process is started in earnest satisfying the Tamil people.
He made this statement following a recent meeting with the President and Prime Minister in Colombo.
In a press release, Head of the TMTK C. V. Wigneswaran said President Wickremesinghe's idea was all MPs from Provinces must govern the respective Provinces under the Chairmanship of the Governors within the terms of a National Agenda.
President Wickremesinghe had referred to Austria as an example, however, according to Wigneswaran's release, his example was inappropriate as Austria remains a Federal Country.
During the meeting, Wigneswaran said no land should be appropriated by the Central Government in the Provinces except with the consent and concurrence of the respective Provincial Government, and that there was no response from the President.
According to the press release, President Wickremesinghe appeared to be in a hurry to rope in Jaffna MPs to be part of the Government. Wigneswaran highlighted that it may be an attempt to showcase it to Geneva.
The release goes on to state that the President also requested Wigneswaran to share a document which outlines the proposal on how funds could be channeled into Sri Lanka from the Diaspora.
It was also pointed out that the 13th Amendment to the Constitution should be implemented in full as a temporary measure until satisfactory constitutional reforms are made.
