Tamil lawyers condemn Wigneswaran’s decision
The TNA’s Norther Province Chief Minister elect, C.V. Wigneswaran, opting to be sworn in before President Mahinda Rajapaksa was an unjust decision, Tamil lawyers said yesterday.
Secretary to the Sri Lanka Tamil Lawyers’ Association R. Ratnavel said the Wigneswaran’s decision to take oath before President Rajapaksa would be detrimental to the cause of Tamils in Sri Lanka. The association issued a statement on Saturday (05) taking exception to the former Supreme Court Justice cum TNA chief minister elect, Wigneswaran’s swearing in scheduled for today (07).
When contacted for comment, Ratnavel said that Tamils had complained to the UN Human Rights Council against President Rajapaksa over atrocities against civilians during the war.
Ratnavel said the TNA had no moral right to take oaths before the President. The Tamils of the country had given a mandate to the TNA and the TNA should not go behind the government, he stressed.
The TNA, on the one hand, demanded for a federal solution and, on the other, struck deals with the President, Ratnavel said.

What an idiot without an ounce of brain in that skull.
His argument is that TNA was given a mandate. Mandate to what? Create a new state? or… to not to be sworn before president? How come this idiot is called a lawyer when he doesn’t have common sense?
Using his same argument MR can say he was given a huge mandate to keep the country undivided. Where would this lawyer run then?
The racist nature of even the “supposedly educated” tamils is well in display here. Have you ever heard of a “Sinhalese lawyers’ association”? No, but there is a “Tamil lawyers association”. For the Sri Lankans there are many similar associations without the word “Sinhala” in the name. This is because they can do things without playing the race card.
But without mentioning the word “Tamil” Tamils are totally incapable of creating a collective of professionals. What a shame ! They can only do things by playing the race card. Without the word “Tamil” they are simply a bunch of disabled people !
