Vigneswaran to change decision if Sampanthan takes responsibility
A decision has been made by Northern Province Chief Minister C.V. Vigneswaran to change his stance regarding the posts of two provincial ministers on one condition, sources said.
Vigneswaran in written has reportedly apprised the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) that he would withdraw his decision if opposition leader R. Sampanthan is ready to take the responsibility regarding the two provincial ministers.
Vigneswaran had earlier demanded the resignation of two provincial councillors, Transport Minister P. Deniswaran and Health Minister P. Sathyalingam who are in the spotlight over corruption allegations.
On June 14, 21 members of the Northern Provincial Council also handed over a no-confidence motion against the Chief Minister.

It is time for you to pack-up your bags and get back to Colombo and enjoy your grandchildren.
The TNA is being forced by the Yahapala constitution makers to remove all impediments to approval of the new constitution.
The Sinhala Buddhist Yahapalana leadership is willing to grant provincial Councils, minute levels of authority over the provinces. This includes limited local policing, limited use of predominant provincial language in courts and Government offices and limited powers over land issues.
The YP will not remove forces from the NP; they will continue to harass the civilian population.
The TNA leadership has agreed to the morsels which fall off the laden tables of the Sinhala Buddhist YP leadership. The new constitution will not meet anywhere near the aspirations of the minorities.
The TNA will join the YP in promulgating the new constitution which is just another old wine in a new bottle. But Sampanthan will stand in the ceremony when the lion flag is unfurled, with tears in his eyes, when the National Anthem is sung in Tamil.
So Vigneswaran your time is up; let the drama continue.
The TRUTH will one day, manifest.
Vigneswaran, thank you for your courageous efforts.
I read the comments by ALOMA; they have a racist tinge.
The Sulujathiya should always obey and be underdogs to the Mahajathiya; that is reality.
