Fri, May 23, 2014, 08:19 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

May 23, Colombo: The Chief Minister of Sri Lanka's Northern Province C.V. Wigneswaran has said that the government was ignoring the verdict of the Northerners and acting on its own in militarizing the Province.

Wigneswaran has made this statement at the farewell accorded to departing Indian Consul General V. Mahalingam who is designated as India's Ambassador to Ghana after serving three years at the Indian Consulate in Jaffna.

The Chief Minister has said the people in the Indian sub-continent knew well the situation in the North and East.

He has charged that the government was "doing everything" to grab People's lands in the North and East with the support of the security forces and planning to change the demography in the North and East.

According to Wigneswaran, the number of voters in the Northern Province is on the decline and the parliamentary representation from the North is also gradually decreasing as a result.

He expressed hope that the new government of India would create an impact on the country in dealing with the North and East issue.
