Sept 29, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Sinhala nationalist party and coalition partner of the government, Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) has accused that the demand by the major Tamil party, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) to remove the Governor of the Northern Province, G.A. Chandrasiri, from his post is a violation of the Constitution.
JHU Legal Advisor and Western Provincial Council Minister Udaya Gammanpila has explained that a resolution has to be passed in the Provincial Council proving that the Governor has violated the Constitution or has involved in any misconduct in order to remove him from his post and the present Governor has not violated any conditions in the Constitution.
"Northern Province Governor has not violated the Constitution nor has he been involved in any other misconduct and no resolution was passed by the Northern Provincial Council to remove him," he has said addressing a media briefing in Colombo.
"I am ashamed of the legal knowledge of former Supreme Court judge, C.V. Wigneswaran (Chief Minister elect for the Province) and Counsel M.A. Sumanthiran," Gammanpila has told Ceylon Today.
The Western PC Councilor has criticized the Tamil for rousing the emotions of the Tamil community in the North without addressing their real issues or raising their living standards.
"Those who got lots of foreign funds to destroy the North have not brought a single dollar to develop the North," he was quoted as saying.
He has criticized the government for not banning the TNA, which was considered as a proxy party of the defeated Tamil Tiger terrorist organization LTTE during the war, after the defeat of LTTE.
"Once Saddam Hussein was defeated his party the Ba'ath Party was banned in Iraq. Similarly when Hitler was defeated his party was also banned in Germany. Our Army defeated the LTTE and at that time we stressed that the little tigers should also be destroyed," he has said.
He has accused the TNA of taking the Tamil people not to Eelam but to destruction.
