Feb 10, Colombo: The anti-government activities of the Northern Provincial Council in Sri Lanka had come under government scanner and the government has decided to conduct a special investigation into the Council's recent measures.
According to a report in Sinhala weekly The Divaina on Sunday, the government has become seriously concerned with the activities of the Council violating the Constitution and working against National Security and the country's Foreign Policy and decided to conduct a special probe.
The government has requested a report from the Governor of the Northern Province G.A. Chandrasiri in this regard, the report said.
