Tamil people are asking only Federal Power Devolution System just like in Australia. The Southern government is having a doubt that if they give Federal System, Tamils will secede and go as a separate country. But if Federal system is not granted, necessity will rise for the Tamils to demand Separate Country, the NPC CM, C.V.Wigneswaran explained to the Ambassador of Australia.
The Ambassador for Australia, Price Hutschisson , visited the North yesterday and met the CM at the CM’s Office. The above clarification was given during this meeting.
When we talked about political matters, I pointed out about the Local Government Unit, Provincial Unit and Federal unit in existence in Australia and how people are living there in freedom. We are only asking that here. But the Government is not willing, I said.
We also discussed about development of the private sector here. We spoke many things about Tourist Sector. He informed that an Australian expert on tourism, Andrew Bailey is assisting the Sri Lanka Government. I requested that he be sent to assist the North in tourist sector.He accepted my proposal, said the CM.
