Explain the stance on NPC resolution – Gammanpila urges Government

Udaya Gammanpila

Neither the Prime Minister nor the President had responded in connection with the Northern Provincial Council’s decision to adopt a resolution seeking a federal solution for the country’s Tamil community, Pivithuru Hela Urumaya leader Udaya Gammanpila says.

The observation was made while speaking at a press conference held in Colombo this afternoon (25).

“As a politician, R. Sampanthan is trying to achieve what Velupillai Prabhakaran couldn’t accomplish through the war,” Gammanpila stressed.
He also went on to say only Minister Ajith. P. Perera explained the Government’s stance in this regard so far.

The NPC adopted the resolution seeking a federal solution to the long-pending issue of political independence for the country’s minority Tamil community, last week.

The resolution was presented by Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran while the Ministers and members of the council expressed views on the proposal afterwards.
