Full Letter: Wiggie Declines Rajapaksa Invitation To Go Modi’s Swearing-In

Northern Province Chief Minister C. V. Wigneswaran today declined President Mahinda Rajapaksa‘s invitation to join the delegation which would leave for Delhi to attend the swearing-in of Prime Minister-elect of India, Narendra Modi.

C.V.Wigneswaran

Writing to the Minister of External Affairs, Professor G.L. Peiris, the Chief Minister said; “I regret to inform you that I’m unable to accept your kind invitation. Primarily, because acceptance would indicate that exists a strong co-operative spirit prevailing between the Centre and the Province, when in fact, the People of North are engulfed in a climate of fear on account of the continued presence of the Military while the activities of the Northern Provincial Council have been stultified. I would be guilty of facilitating token were I to accept such invitation. Nevertheless I have already sent my best wishes to the Prime Minister Elect of India through the High Commissioner for India in Sri Lanka.”

We publish below the letter in full;

23. 05. 2014

Professor G.L. Peiris, MP,

Minister of External Affairs

 

Hon’ble Minister!

Your Fax of even date to hand.

I’m grateful for the invitation extend on behalf of H.E. The President to accompany him to grace the occasion of the swearing in of Shri Narandra Modi, the Prime Minister Elect of India, even at this late stage. I reply having considered your kind request in the company of my Board of Ministers.

It is an auspicious sign that the historic election of Shri Narendra Modi has revived in the Government of Sri Lanka a sense of co-operation and partnership towards the Northern Province. Given the untold hardships of the Peoples of Northern Province and the strictures on the functioning of the Northern Provincial Council, this is indeed welcome.

However, I regret to inform you that I’m unable to accept your kind invitation. Primarily, because acceptance would indicate that exists a strong co-operative spirit prevailing between the Centre and the Province, when in fact, the People of North are engulfed in a climate of fear on account of the continued presence of the Military while the activities of the Northern Provincial Council have been stultified. I would be guilty of facilitating token were I to accept such invitation. Nevertheless I have already sent my best wishes to the Prime Minister Elect of India through the High Commissioner for India in Sri Lanka.

I earnestly hope that the spirit of partnership and goodwill expressed by your kind invitation would nevertheless continue to ensure that the electoral mandate of the Northern Province would be fulfilled and the fundamental rights of its People are preserved.

 

Yours sincerely,

Justice C.V. Wigneswaran

Chief Minister

Northern Province

    Justice Wigneswaran being well aware of the cunning and devious intentions of Rajafoxxa did not fall for his latest trick and rejected the invitation to Modi’s inauguration.Justice Wigneswaran’s rejection of the invitation appears to have been reported widely in TV, press and online news reports which is excellent and will give some food for thought for Modi. I hope Modi will not allow himself to be fooled by Rajafoxxa like his predecessor Manmohan did.

      What MR normally doing is,making other people’s life
      and lifestyle difficult,especially when he can not get
      anyone in his line.MR game plan was double edged.If
      Wiggie accepted the in vitation good for MR,if not,still
      better and it will serve more to the benefit of MR local
      policy of not engaging with the real issue of finding a
      lasting solution.Wiggie decision was perfect and
      determined one.President of a state must act with respect
      to other leaders especially taking into account the nature
      of certain qualities of a particular profession that
      people had been in before taking to politics.TNA chose the
      right man for the job and the Tamils are determined that
      their dignity must be returned.What’s wrong in it?I
      strongly feel this rejection of Wiggie is a big SLAP ON THE
      FACE OF PEOPLE LIKE RAUF HAKEEM WHO WAGS HIS TAIL TO ALL
      SIDES AND HOODWINK MUSLIM VOTERS.MUSLIMS MUST BE PREPARED
      TO FACE DIFFICULTIES,LOSE COMFORTS AND EVEN PROPERTIES IF
      THEY WANT TO LIVE WITH DIGNITY BECAUSE THEY LIKE IT OR NOT
      THERE’S A HUGE HUMILIATION WAITING TO HAPPEN WITHOUT EVEN
      ASKING FOR IT UNLIKE TAMILS.Martin Luther King said”the
      ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and the cruelty of
      bad people but the silence over that by the good people,”
      and in our case,be it Sinhalese,Tamil or Muslim.Stand up
      and say that you are suffering or suffer forever in
      good silence and perish,and perish like animals.This is
      the truth,however much bitter.

      Interllectual people will UNEQUIVOALLY agree with Wigge and his decision studying the issue closely, since the invitation is only to saarc leaders in the region. Secondly, being in a critical juncture amidst the high cost of living for any average man, govt´s should been very small limiting to handful of. Meaning – in this occasion, though he was invited would not have time to go into details in terms lanken tamil issue and its future. However, the manner that SRILANKEN MUGABE (SRILANKEN MARCOS; SRILANKEN SUHARTHO or the similar)plans it further indebting the stricken nation, is not welcome by anyone.

    To all the people work tirelessly day and night for a regime change in Sri Lanka through this web portal:

    Don’t forget to collect your payment tomorrow for the month of May from Tamil Diaspora and INGOs.

    Doing a OK job but only 0.001 percent read it. So the possibility of plucking your SL family members to first world countries as refugees not looking too good at this stage.

    P.S. Don’t forget to watch Sri Lanka president at the Indian PM elect Modi inauguration on Monday. Your favorite lady Jayalalitha would be watching a teledrams during that time. Ohh No sorry, she can’t. No electricity in Tamil Nadu from 7 -10 PM daily.

      One another meeharakek not being able to see it beyond that is what intantly came to my reading this kind of narrow minded views.
      Enough is enough, when will you finally see it correctly – then there will be a change towrads the betterment of the majority masses of the island nation. So long people like you – like frogs in wells behave bother the process – just because you guy have not having the capacities to do so – or due to total ignorance – nothing can go right for the justice and deginified life stlyes – perhaps, we enjoyed that long ago in the same country more than it is seen today.

              Where did Dr Mervyn Silva PhD receive his?

              In fact MR too was awarded a doctorate somewhere in former Soviet Union.

              Its all confusing.

                as far as my info are concerned:

                Except Dayan´s all other titles were just honorary dr titles;

                A) For Mervin De Silva : to have worked on all hidden agendas incl. multiple killings

                B) Rajapakshes were awarded them by one of the lanken universities, GOOD thing lanken media did not use the prefixes for Rajas yet; though the stupid media still add it to the name of Mervin the vermin

                ““Bala’s PhD was a fake.” Where did he buy it Eastern Europe or India? “

    Lets look at this whole scene this way.

    MR is stupid to invite Wiggie.
    Had wiggie went with MR, wiggie could have built relationships with the leaders in the Indian gov. He missed it.

    MR wants to show good relations with north. then by accepting MR’s invitation and showing good will, Wiggie could have influence MR and even armwrestle him to get his things done. Wiggie lost this as well.

    Might be a short term , PR victory for wiggie, but lost an opportunity for a long term gain.

    And MR, you are an idiot for inviting him!

      “MR is stupid to invite Wiggie”

      MR must be your grandson.

      “Had wiggie went with MR, wiggie could have built relationships with the leaders in the Indian gov.”

      An open invitation by Hindian external Affairs Minister is still not made good. So Wiggie does not need MR’s help to introduce him to the political establishment of Hindia. Let him build relationship on his own terms.

      He is a grown up man and he does not need a piggyback ride to Delhi.

      You could have free ride if you try bit harder.

      Hi sach and wickrama You both have not understood the SL politics. Invitation was not directed to MR. It was for SAARC’s heads only from those states. It so happened SL is one of those member state.That too was an open ended invitation not extended to MR’S claque or choir- boys. MR chose the wrong person CVW. MR wanted to show to other leaders “that all things at home are ‘hanger dorri'”! With an intellectual he tried his kidding. CVW is not one like his many boot licking jokers like Champuka, Rathana, Werawansa, Dullas, Dinesh, Douglas-Deva, GL.Pieris and many others who are dependent on MR for their ministries and perks to swindle the counties coffers and have become fat cats. We Tamils are delighted CVW had refused the invitation. People who had pawned their dignity like the Mayor of Jaffna and Thondaman Jr had accepted the invite with both hands and feet. Spineless stooges. The world and Sinhala masses should open their eyes and ears to know what sort of President they have. He is not honest with his people, Just a show of mere Thamasha and rhetoric’s. He bought his presidency first time by paying millions to Prapaharan. second time by keeping the election commissioner captive inside the Temple trees. He is now working out the means, how to come back again for the third time! Sure you two would help him to push the country to no return place in the hell.

        Easwaran,
        Nobody questions whether it was an invitation specifically for MR or targetted for SAARC. I see many tamils brought that up, it seems more of a consolation trick for themselves after seeing india and SL relations are not going downhill.

        And i am hardly the person to talk in favor of MR. I havent even vote for him. i dont think wiggie is above Wimal. He acted like him in NPC elections doing cheap politics. I see many concern him to be flowless as he is a former judge. But that is not the case.

        The reality is you tamils do not have any sense of real world. That is why! I still think it was stupid of MR to invite wiggie and again it was stupid of wiggie to let it go.

        Easwaran,

        I may have not understood Sri Lanka politics very well, but I surely did understand separatist Tamil politics in my country.

        Wiggie needs a mobile hospital wherever he goes. Last thing MR needed was an emergency landing at Madras air port. So glad he didn’t go.

        You people were never satisfied with any SLn leaders unless he is Prabhakaran the uneducated serial killer. (how funny is that?)All other previous/current leaders of Sri Lanka according to you were/are murderers, abductors, extortionists and fraudsters. Tamil Amirthalingam was killed by Tamil LTTE terrorists. Jaffna Mayor Duraiappa was killed by Prabhakaran himself. Then Premadasa trusted Tamils and kept them around him. Paskaralingam made billions even in 1992 and disappeared to England soon after premadasa was blown into pieces by a Tamil Terrorist. Kadiragamer the much loved Tamil intellect respected by all races was shot dead by Tamils. LTTE tried to kill Chandrika but failed. LTTE Tamil Terrorists tried hard to get rid of current SL President everyday but couldn’t. For over 30 years all those misery for my country with money collected by educated/honest/intelligent/god fearing Tamil diaspora through churches, kovils and INGOS for liberation of Tamils. Go watch videos of last few days of fighting. Tamil civilians at every given opportunity ran towards Sri Lanka Army, not towards LTTE. Have you ever heard of civilians running away from liberators towards aggressors?

        So, sorry pal, some of us still thank President Rajapaksa for ending the war and bringing peace to ALL races. Civilians were the major casualties of any wars like Iraq, Afganistan, Libya, Vietnam.

        ” Solheim, told President Rajapaksa around March 2006: “Prabhakaran is a military genius. I have seen him in action….” The President Rajapksa said: “He is from the jungles of the North. I am from the jungles of the South. Let’s see who will win!” Lalith Weeratunga, at the President’s interview with Ram.

    Why Modi’s swearing-in should be a regional event?Why
    other leaders have to listen to what he got o say in
    that national event?In what ways India can benefit from
    the region or the region can benefit from India? Or
    simply a display of “look how the whole region celebrates
    the opening of Tea man’s son’s taking over from Ghandis?”
    Premadasa had this mentality and now MR carries on!

    Mahinda is releasing Indian fisherman as a good will gestutre for the swearing in of Modi as the new PM of India.
    He released some when India abstained from the UN vote as a thank you. Then he arrested some more just in case he needed them and they havre come useful.
    I am sure after releasing this lot he will arrest some more just in case Modi make a state visit to India, to release them then.

    This is like keeping wine bottle at home to take for a dinner invitation.

    All rouge Indian Fishers are released by the President on the eve of Modi’s “coronation”.

    What start..

    Did the Vellala Wiggie miss the Bus?.

    According to the Lankan media, it is the Board of Ministers in the NPC who stopped Wiggie going to Delhi.

    Aren’t these the Ministers who held vigils for LTTE leader on his death anniversary?.

    Are they for reconciliation?.

    Three, state of the art Sea Food processing plants in the North were inspected by the Governor recently.But the CM was not to be seen.

    He and his LTTE proxy Boss are more interested in lifting the ban on LTTE supporting Eelaam outfits in the West than seeing the fisher inhabitants in the North , improving their living standards.

    If Vellala Wiggie joined the troupe, he could have at least put in a word to Modi on the side lines, to get the Indian ban off the Diaspora.

    Mahinda is the only leader to use the word terrorism in the message to Modi. Mahinda is still pucnh drunk with terorism. In his message to Modi he says Sri Lanka will cooperate with India to fight terrorism.

    This is very insensitive considering the occassion and considering that Pakistan’s Sharif was invited to attend the oaths ceremony by Modi as a future bridge builiding gesture. and Modi also did not use the word terrorism in his address>>>>>

    Pakistans’ Sharif also avoided the word he said “We should remove fears, mistrust and misgivings about each other,”

    >>>>Perhaps the words Mahinda should have used 5 years ago on the 18th May 2009.>>>

    Perhpas Mahinda wants paint a picture of terrorism amidst the arrest of Vaiko for demonstrating, nd the protest of the TN students that kept Rajanikanth and Jeyalalith from attending the Oaths cermemony as terrorist.>>>>

    Mahinda has demonstrated what an insensitive idiot he is and and what an insenstive idiots his advisors GLP and Kariyawasam are.

    He had made himself a fool.

    Dear readers!
    Please read Chief Minister Wigneswaren’s (CVW) letter carefully: “I reply having considered your kind request in the company of my Board of Ministers.” This sentence says indirectly that he wanted to go but was prevented from doing so (by the TNA). He was not even allowed to write this letter independently. He was compelled to write it “in the company of his BoM. As reasons, CVW says “because acceptance would indicate that (there) exists a strong co-operative spirit prevailing between the Centre and the Province, when in fact, the People of North are engulfed in a climate of fear on account of the continued presence of the Military while the activities of the Northern Provincial Council have been stultified.”
    This BoM’s main intention is to show the world that there does not exist a strong co-operative spirit between the Center and this particular province and Northern people are living in fear!!!!! The letter points out as the main issue being the Military presence in the North. All Sri Lankans including Tamils know what fear means when the LTTE was actively present throughout Sri Lanka before 2009. It’s the armed forces that rescued approximately 300,000 Tamils from the clutches of the LTTE at the tail end of the war in May 2009. We also know that a country’s security can not and should not be compromised. It is the country’s president who, as the Commander of the Armed Forces, decides where the country’s armed forces should be stationed, not the provincial chief ministers. We hear reliably from countries like Malaysia that the LTTE is still not dead. According to DBS Jeyaraj, Gopi’s story is not a teledrama! We all like to live in peace.

    It is easier to criticize President Rajapaksa’s government from the cozy living rooms in Canada, USA, and Europe, but the reality is that more Tamils live in the South among and with their Sinhalese brothers and sisters and it is an undeniable fact. (Recently, a Tamil boy ran away from his abusive father in the North! Where did he go to? He went to a Sinhalese friend in the South!). Many readers probably don’t know that Chief Minister Wigneshwaren’s sons are married to Sinhalese girls! Let the average Tamil people do the same! There is no room for ethnic divisions in modern countries.
    I watched the entire ceremony of Modi’s swearing in ceremony on NDTV; listened to commentaries as well; (there was no mention about Jayalalitha’s nor CVW’s absence at all.)

    President Rajapaksha’s hand shake with Prime Minister Modi was friendly and cordial. Honestly, CVW missed the opportunity and hence the Tamils. Regrettably, Tamils in Sri Lanka have missed so many opportunities since they thoughtlessly listened to their gullible politicians. The Sinhalese as the majority do not listen only to one set of politicians; they investigate and change governments depending on the circumstances. Unfortunately Northern Tamilians have become hostages of their own politicians; and ironically CVW himself is a hostage of this northern vicious circle which is political and democratic in appearance but self-destructive in reality.
    We all know that minority issues in Sri Lanka are not really issues that have emanated from within the people; they are mostly created and sustained by various interested parties in order to make a living. This does not exclude some of those who contribute on a daily basis to various websites. And unfortunately,these websites do not exclude Colombo Telegraph either!

      You just need to study the person MR more closely to say otherway around. Until then, it can take long – as to the villagers that keep voting him and his into power.

      MR´s shake hands with anyone – even with his bitter enemies are seen friendly and cordial. There people get misguided easily but not being able to even guess at what the man is upto to next. THis was the view one of his cousins as posted to the press few years ago: “Mahinda is a unpredicable”; Needless to say – if we closely studied it sofar, what has his regime done towards the tamil problems yet ?

      Anyone as you say sitting out of the country will clearly see it than ones living in the country.

      Is it seen equal – if a regime s been ignoring rebuilding the nation but go only for building of physical structures. Former is clearly even more important than the latter to any healthy minds. If one would give in percentages, over 90% are focused for infrastructure building while less than 10% are for nation building with none of the crimes have been investigated sofar. Victimzed people will never stop asking the justice ….. justice related to the ones who went missing in the war end… justice against injustice being practised by army soldiers habitated in that areas today. It is reported that uncountable numbers of rapes and the related crimes have become day today agendas of N provicnce today, even if the govt denies. Not only nothern part, but also across the country drug menace and other high crimes have become everyone´s worry… what have they the MR regime been taking against this.. ? nothing. they just promote violences being silent or helping those criminial sowing impunity.. today people dont feel that their rights .. basice rights are safeguarded.
      You cant compare 1300 million folks- INDIANS with a 20 mio srilanken population. India is a country – that has nurmerous kind of problems that have sometimes no solutions. They have brutal caste sytem related problems, forutnatley, ours has been dminishing to this day; as caste and creed are given no place in today´s society.

      Richmond Peiris – “Many readers probably don’t know that Chief Minister Wigneshwaren’s sons are married to Sinhalese girls! “>>> so what ?, there are many intermarriages between Sinhala and Tamil people in Sri Lanka.>>>>
      Richmond Peiris -“There is no room for ethnic divisions in modern countries”>>>>you are using the word ethnic division, that shows you are punch drunk with “Division” No one wants ethnic division What is at stake is ethnic and cultural identity.>>>>>
      Richmond Peiris -“ “Listened to commentaries as well; (there was no mention about Jayalalitha’s nor CVW’s absence at all”>>>>what a stupid comment to make. Why would a commentator need to mention this?
      I also read Modi’s speech and congratulatory messages form all the leaders of the world to Modi. Only Rajapakse used the word terrorism in his message, not even Pakistan’s leader.. That shows the mental state of Rajapakse. .He is punch drunk with terrorism. He wants to revive terrorism in Sri Lanka whether to instil a fear among Sinhala people like you and perpetuate his family rule .>>>>>
      Richmond Peiris -“ “President Rajapaksha’s hand shake with Prime Minister Modi was friendly and cordial” what did you expect Modi to do . did you touch his hand did it burn you? >>>>
      “Unfortunately Northern Tamilians have become hostages of their own politicians”;>>>unfortunately Sinhala people people like you are easily brain washed by the regime and hostage of the regime!.
      Richmond Peiris -“The Sinhalese as the majority do not listen only to one set of politicians; they investigate and change governments depending on the circumstances” – what a joke? where is your opposition.

      Pointless to talking ot this kind of ones. They are trained to be do so. I really dont know why. BBS is now made silent by some actions taken by the govt. So ist the case with Mervin the vermin and his activities. But why is that they let it grown until no easy actions can be taken. Why Mervin was abused to take the lives of innocient people. Why other unknown kind of criminals are being promoted by them to this day, in a no law situation… why only to focus their family rule.. nothin beyond that.. why is that they seem to have no brains that the people´s problems have gone up to alarming levels.
      I myself know why people to have thrown their lovely ones crocodile floating river nilwala. Had the great soldiers braveries failed, what would have been with those infants … what have been the case with many that survive on bittergaurad eating .. not having the essentials to feed them with. .. why only the surface of the sobana developments projects are given the publicity intending to misguide the nation.
      No doubt any govt has done something.. but what matters is the percentage..

    Has this Vellala CM made the biggest boo boo in his short political life?.

    Brahamin CM in Tamil Nadu wouldn’t have been too keen to bend down to a Shudra , and take orders, although he is now the PM.

    But Vaiko a fellow low caste at least should have shown solidarity by going to the inauguration.

    Instead he played petty politics to please the Diaspora and the LTTE proxies in Srilalanka.and became their attack hound

    But he bit more than he could chew and ended up in the dog house in Delhi.

    The new PM wouldn’t forget that for sure,

    As much as he will remember the silly excuses of the Vellala minnow, in SL, who had a fab chance to make some impression but totally goofed it under pressure from the LTTE proxy cabinet lead by the LTTE leader and Prabakaran’s one time God father

    The new PM would have received some briefing about the Vellala CM praising the LTTE Leader as his Hero at his own inauguration or soon after.

    And the fact that his leader hasn’t still apologized to the Indian inhabitants for the killing of their favourite son by the LTTE.

      Sumane,

      My reading is your King Jarapakse has no other choice but to get
      Modi-fied. It is in fear of this Modi-fication that Medamulena (?) mafia is now gearing up for a Presidential Election. It is because the mislead Buddhist Sinhala extremists now have seen the plot Berawansa
      is beating the drum as he sees the coming colours are right to do another jump. Born Again Buddhist Ranawake is singing the same tune too with his yellow-robed goons. The moment Modiji gets the Paks, Ruskies and the Chinese to his side Jarapakse Kingdom will crash like a pack of cards. The Chinese appear to be convinced the Jarapakse clique has messed up the economy (see the Stock market) anb does not have the paisa to pay back those multi-billion dollar loans in time.
      As Confucius maama said “if no money, then no can do”

      Backlash

    “to expedite the process of national reconciliation in a manner that meets the aspirations of the Tamil community for a life of equality, justice, peace and dignity in a united Sri Lanka”.

    Now, don’t forget to invite me if you are serving some of that Palmhrah Toddy that you have reserved for this occasion.

    This guy Wigneswaran has once again demonstrated that he is a prisoner in the hands of the LTTE cronies both outside and inside Sri Lanka. He and his TNA will not get the expected support from the Modi government.

    Wigneswaran has shown again that he has no political acumen. He lived in a world of statutes and law books and never had the capacity to understand politics or diplomacy. He has no clear thoughts or actions over Tamil political issues. One day he will call Prabaharan a great hero and another day he will call him a dictator. These are not the utterances of a man possessed with clear thought processes.

    TNA will not be able to continue with their blame games any more. Modi government will now compel TNA to participate in the Parliament Select Committee proceedings. If TNA leaders wants the support of Modi government they will have to listen to New Delhi and attend Select Committee proceedings.

    With the election of Modi government, the winner is Mahinda Rajapakse and SL Government.

    Modi government will not be listening to Tamil Nadu leaders on the question of SL Tamil issue. National interests of India will be more important to them than concerns of sections of the Tamil Nadu population. They would like Sri Lanka on its Southern flank to come into India’s fold. MR will have no problem with that provided New Delhi promises to reign on the Tamil separatists in TN. Whether Sri Lanka gets along with New Delhi or not, Modi government will sooner or later put an end to the increasing influence of the money power of LTTE cronies in TN. Those Tamil Nadu leaders and parties that live out of the hands of the LTTE cronies will be put out of action and even jailed for their separatist agenda. They will be seen as a threat to India’s security interests and even to the unity of India. New Delhi will have to deal with not just the TN leaders with a separatist agenda but with thousands of former LTTE cadres who managed to escape there before and after Mullivaikal. Malaysia has started dealing with former LTTE cadres. According to one knowledgeable source, some 5000 former trained LTTE cadres went over to Malaysia before and after Mullivaikal.

    Vaiko is a cipher and with his stupid demonstrations in New Delhi at the time Modi was ascending to the throne in the Indian capital he has lost whatever sympathy he would have had with the BJP leadership. Even Vijay Kanth and Ramdas were muted in their opposition to MR attending Modi’s oath taking ceremony. They studiously avoided any drama over the issue. Vijay Kanth even went to the extent of justifying the invitation to MR and got into the good books of BJP leadership.
