Oct 02, Colombo: A Tamil ally of Sri Lanka's governing party has called on the government to allocate powers meant for the Northern Provincial Council.
Member of the Eelam People's Democratic Party (EPDP) has said the government should assign powers meant for the Northern Provincial Council without heeding to racial and religious extremists.
EPDP organizer for Vadamarachchi, A. Sri Rangeswaran has warned that the people in the North would commence a protest campaign if the government fails to vest the rightful powers of the Northern Provincial Council with the Council.
He has said at a public event in Vadamarachchi that there have been many sacrifices and losses on the part of the people in the North to finally achieve the power in the Northern Provincial Council.
According to Rangeswaran, separatists in the South are propagating communal and religious disharmony through various forms of propaganda to achieve their political agenda.
