Reports say that preparations have been made to hold a hartaal campaign in the Northern Province today, demanding the withdrawal of the no-confidence motion put forward to have Northern Province Chief Minister C. V. Wigneshwaran removed from his post.

15 members of the Northern Provincial Council signed a petition to pledge support to chief minister C.V. Wigneshwaran.

 The petition was handed over to Northern Provincial Governor Reginald Corey yesterday.

Earlier yesterday , 21 council members submitted a another petition to the Northern governor requesting that he remove the chief minister from his post.

The  Governor later stated that he would inform the chief minister to prove his majority in the council.

The controversy started as the chief minister informed two of his ministers to resign from their posts and two other ministers to go on compulsory leave after they had been accused of corruption.
