Wigneswaran will function when he had no power over his Chief Secretary. He claimed that the President had replied, “She has held that position for years and they can share the work.”
 
He quipped, “It’s a peculiar bureaucracy when the Chief Minister has no power over his Chief Secretary.”
Jolly further pointed out, “I know that the Chief Secretary has to work under the Governor of the Northern Province who is at loggerheads and the whole scenario seems to be peculiar.”
 

BJP politician Jolly and BJP National General Secretary Muralidhar Rao have had a nearly 45 minute long meeting with the President prior to their departure on 20 September and discussed a wide range of issues relating to the Tamil diaspora, the proposed 13th Amendment and devolution of powers within the framework of the Sri Lankan Constitution.
