People defeated in election using me for their political business: Wigneswaran

Those who are defeated in elections are trying to use me for their political business. I am happy of being useful to them at least in this way. 1958 holocaust was caused by a mere rumour. The southern party leaders should have translated and read my speech into Sinhalese or English and could have condemned me, said the NPC Cm, C.V.Wigneswaran.

He was speaking in the 42nd National Sports Festival, held in the Duraiyappa Stadium yesterday presided by the President Maithripala Sirisena.

I sincerely hope that the President will ensure that the facilities in Kilinocchchi developed and the National Sports Festival will be held soon in Kilinochchi, he said.
