No Land grab, if Army is not here, CM in 41st sitting of NPC

“The land grab is continuing because the Army is here. We understand that people from Colombo are engaged in land grab. This is happening because Army is here”. said the  Northern Provincial Council CM C. V. Wigneswaran  in 41st sitting of the Council yesterday.

Some people ask me why I am finding fault with Sri Lanka and India. We are not blaming anybody. We cannot accept some countries excluding our problems and acting only in favour of the Sri Lankan Government. Some countries ask us to work with the government. To them, we say that our livelihood is affected by the army. We can work with the government. This government came to power because we voted for them. We doubt whether the mindset of the Government had changed. You rectify that and we will work with them, I have said, he said.
