Shivajilingam opposed to change of place name

Tamil National Alliance member of the Northern Provincial Council Shivajilingam has opposed any move to change the name of Nagadeepa by certain quarters.

Speaking to an English media, he explained that since the names of Nagadeepa and Nainatheewu are used for the same place, this move to change name should not be used to incite racist racial sentiments.

He made these observations commenting on a resolution allegedly adopted by the Northern Provincial Council.
