Former Northern CM, C.V.Wigneswaran has said in his New Year message that the Government should stop acquiring lands in North and East directly or indirectly and colonizing outsiders in them.
I am happy in wishing a happy New Year to all celebrating the New Year.
Particularly, happiness should dawn on the lives of people carrying the scars of the war. May the anticipations of people in search of their missing kins be fulfilled. Our youths suffering without employment must find employment in the new year. All state Forces should leave our motherland in the new year.
I greet all who celebrate the New Year, in the best hope that the constructive changes will occur in the minds of Sinhalese, particularly in the minds of Sinhalese Leaders, he had said.
