The Northern Provincial Council has proposed, as part of the constitutional change ,  that a federal state be formed with two states in it based on the language.

The proposal which was submitted to the Northern provincial Council by its Chairman C.V.K. Sivagnanam today stated that two provincial states, separated on the basis of the languages Sinhala and tamil, should be established.

 It has also been proposed to centralize the Tamil speaking provincial state in the North and the East.  

In addition, the proposal stated that a separate administrative unit should be set up in the Southern state for the upcountry Tamils and simultaneously, a similar unit in the East for the Muslims.

The proposal submitted today should be passed with majority votes when the Northern Provincial Council meets on April 12.  If this proposal is passed accordingly, the chief minister will hand it over to the  Opposition leader R. Sampandan, to be submitted to the Constitutional board.
