Former Chief Minister of the Northern Provincial Council and the Leader of Tamil Makkal Thesiya Koottanii , Justice C. V. Wigneswaran has indicated to the Swiss Ambassador that it is doubtful whether a just Election will be held. It is important to find out why the Army has been massed only in the North, he had further said.
He had said these while the Swiss High Commissioner and the Officer in Charge for Political Affairs met him Monday morning.
Elaborating further he has said that making three Army men to work along the Grama Officers raise suspicions whether the Army will undertake civilian matters in the villages in the future. I cannot understand why the Army has established 20 road blocks on A9 Highway. They have done this under the guise of Corona threat. It also raises suspicion whether this is done to prevent people from voting. Bringing Army out in an Election time is undemocratic act. Another suspicion is that what will happen to the Ballot boxes between the voting day on 5th and the counting day on the 6th. If Army is called in to assist in election tasks, there are chances of undemocratic activities occurring. It is essential to find out why the Army has been massed only in the North, he has said.
