Leader of the opposition and leader of the Tamil National Alliance, R. Sampanthan in a letter to the Chief Minister of the Northern Province, C.V. Vigneswaran has stated that he cannot take responsibility of northern provincial council ministers who do not have allegations levelled against them.

This was in response to the letter sent by the chief minister to the leader of the TNA yesterday.

Chief Minister of the Northern Province, C.V. Vigneswaran previously in a letter to the leader of the opposition, R. Sampanthan informed him to take responsibility of the ministers of the northern provincial council who do not have allegations levelled against them.

The letter from parliamentarian R. Sampanthan states that he has informed the ministers who do not have allegations against them to not obstruct the investigations into them.

The letter further notes that the chief minister’s contradicting actions have resulted in the issues within the provincial council.

MP Sampanthan in his letter further urges the chief minister to rethink if he has in fact worked in harmony with the leader of Illankai Tamil Arasu party, parliamentarian Mavai Senathirajah as per his previous statements.  

Chief Minsiter of the Northern Province, C.V Vigneswaran took measures to remove the ministers of agriculture and education in the northern provincial council from their posts and place transport and health ministers on leave for a month on allegations of corruption and fraud.

Illankai Tamil Arasu party opposed this measure and 21 councillors handed over a no confidence motion against the chief minister, to the governor of the province.
