Provincial Council system is not a solution, but we will not allow it to be abolished: TNA Spokesperson Sumanthiran

Parliamentarian and the Spokesperson of Tamil National Alliance M.A. Sumanthiran said his party  would not allow the abolition of the provincial council system and would not simply accept the existing provincial council system as a solution to the problem of the Tamil people.

He said that there should be a provincial council system but it is the expectation of the Tamil people that it should have full powers and flourish as a federal structure in the merged North and East provinces.

He was speaking to the media after attending the Tamil-Sinhala New Year Pongal event held at the Vadamarachchi TNA office in Jaffna.
