I was informed that a faction of a political party had planned to burn my effigy prior to the meeting to be held in Vavuniya. Burn my effigy, not once, but a thousand times. I will not worry about it. But please don’t burn the long held policies of Tamil people, teaming with your Party, said the former CM, C.V.Wigneswaran.
He said this while participating as the Chief Guest in an event held in the Cultural Hall of Vavuniya to bestow awards to multi-Sector Service People, yesterday and delivering his Chief Guest’s address.
Elaborating further he said that, he received several phone calls on that morning alerting me that effigy is to be burned by a faction belonging to a political party.
” The people who belong to that party and protesting against him should understand one thing. I most kindly inform them that I shall not worry about burning my effigy, not once, but a thousand times. But please don’t burn the long held policies of Tamil people, teaming with your Party.
We have tried to improve ourselves and the parties and had forgotten the people in the process”, he further said.
