Wigneswaran spreads racism: JVP accuses

The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) has severely condemned the remarks made by Northern Province Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran at a rally held in Jaffna last week, in a bid to spread racism.

The views expressed by Wigneswaran are not that of the people in the North and the East. “The statement made by the Chief Minister of the Northern Provincial Council is one that gives a stimulant to the communalists in the South and such revolting statements made at a time when all Sinhalese, Tamil, and other people strive to achieve national unity should be condemned,”   Tilvin Silva said at a a press conference held in Colombo yesterday.
