Although I was happy that the Sri Lankan government was focussing towards a constitutional amendment, it appears that it is an effort taken to deceive the country’s people and to deceive the minority political parties, said the northern province chief minister C.V. Vigneswaran.
According to the Northern Province people and ideas presented by the civil society organizations the only solution to resolve the north east problem is the devolution of power within a unitary state which is a federal system, said the chief minister.
The chief minister said due to the strong objection of the southern political parties about the devolution of power to the Tamil people, the government is also following a casual policy towards the constitutional amendment.
He said he feel sad and surprised that the groups in the south is against a governance given to the Tamil people and said the Tamil people and the politicians has not forgotten about the ne constitutional amendment coming in the future.
