Chairman of the Northern Provincial Council C.V.K. Sivagnanam has stated that Sivajilingam contesting in Kurunegala constituency without any valid cause is helpful to Mahinda Rajapakse. It is a favourable factor for Mahinda.
He was responding to a question by the media regarding Sivajiingam attempting to attend and address the sitting of the Northern Provincial Council.
Sivagnanam stated that Sivajilingam was refused permission to address the Council since he was contesting the parliamentary poll without notifying the Council.
