The Ilankai Tamil Arasu Katchi (ITAK) president and the Tamil National Alliance (TNA)’s deputy leader in Parliament, Mavai S. Senathirajah, has come out against Chief Minister of the Northern Province and his colleague C.V. Wigneswaran for the latter’s “conduct” during the recent Parliamentary election campaign.

Mr. Senathirajah, who made public his displeasure about the Chief Minister at a party meeting in Vavuniya a few days ago, said that it was “regrettable and unfortunate” that Mr. Wigneswaran, who was elected to the post on the strength of the “tireless work” of ITAK and the TNA workers two years ago, did not issue a statement in support of the TNA’s candidates for the parliamentary elections.

Besides, he “behaved in a manner that was sought to cause confusion among voters and favour only the anti-TNA position. Eventually, to their credit, the people disregarded his [Mr. Wigneswaran’s] posturing and demonstrated their unequivocal support for the TNA.”

Asked whether any disciplinary action would be taken against Mr. Wigneswaran, he said the party’s executive would meet on September 11 when the conduct of the Chief Minister was expected to come up for discussion.

“It is up to the Central Committee and the executive to decide,” Mr. Senathirajah said, adding that the venue of the meeting had not yet been finalised.

A report on alleged human rights violations in Sri Lanka during the Eelam War is likely to be presented on September 30 during the 30th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council.

According to the current time table, it will be taken up during the third and final week of the Council’s session, which starts on September 14 and concludes on October 2. The sitting on Sri Lanka is expected to go on for three hours on September 30.

Prepared by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Investigation on Sri Lanka, the report is a result of a resolution adopted by the UNHRC in March 2014. (The Hindu)
