Meanwhile the views of Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe, who is the Media Spokesperson of the JHU were sought in this regard.
Former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu and DMK Leader Muthuvel Karunanidhi told his party paper Murasoli that the 13th Amendment to the Sri Lankan Constitution which was passed with Indian intervention to delegate more powers to the Provinces has been under threat.
In a special statement to Murasoli, Karunanidhi quoted Indian External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid as saying to Sri Lanka last week that the clauses established in the 13th Amendment should not be weakened.
He further stated that it was suspicious whether Northern Provincial Council elections would be held in the island as scheduled this year.
