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.
