While condemning that the 20th Amendment Act will grab the freedom enjoyed by the Provincial people, the NPC CM, C.V.Wigneswaran further said that this act will pave the way force upon us half-baked decisions in the matter of solution relevant to the ethnic problem, that is being mentioned by the Government.
The 104th sitting of the NPC was held at the Council’s Chamber at Kaithady. The CM said so while speaking on 20th Amendment. Speaking further he said the current 20th Amendment that we are discussing today is described as one which containing worse amendment than the Amendment of the year 1978.
This amendment has four purposes.
*Holding the elections of all PCs on the same day
*Granting the authority of determining the life period of PCs
*Extending or shortening the life of certain PCs, making PCs to lose authority and grabbing that power for Parliament.
The right to elect and the sovereignty of the Provincial people will be affected by this act. When this happens, especially, all the political rights demanded by the Tamil people will be blown into thin air and there is the possibility for an authoritarian Political Constitution being imposed on us. Hence the NPC should oppose the Act, he said.
