If the North and East are not merged, what happened to Trincomalee will happen to Baticaloa and Amparai. That the whole of the East will be lost, said the NPC CM, C.V. Wigneswaran.
Elaborating further he said, the Government has taken deliberate action to keep North and East separated. Trincomalee has been converted to all three races within the last 50 years. Some special units within the Federal System with a special Administration for Trincomalee and a special unit for Muslim people within merged N& E, will be a better suggestion, he said.
