I Took Oaths A Little While Ago

By C.V.Wigneswaran

C.V. Wigneswaran

I took oaths a little while ago this morning undertaking to faithfully perform the functions of my office.

My office is a gift from my people. They have mandated me to perform my duties on a long term as well as a short term perspective. The former behoves us to confirm our individuality. To do so we have to learn lessons from our struggles of the past, our previous political perspectives and our past experiences and then forge ahead. It is the need of the hour that we remove the misunderstandings and doubts that have crept into the minds of various communities.

It is as a part of such an exercise that we decided that I take oaths before the President of this Country.We believe our decision would convey to our brethren our desire to settle our differences within a united Sri Lanka.

Our action today buttresses our close–up perspectives too, in that we expect to bring immediate relief to our war affected people. I hope the Sinhala people would endeavour to prod on their political representatives in every manner whatsoever to bring sunshine into the lives of our disturbed and affected Tamil speaking people.

I expect my Sinhala brothers and sisters to impress upon their political representatives that internal self determination does not divide the country but facilitate a journey on the path of unity. I sincerely ask the Sinhala people to realize that to the same extent the Sinhala people cherish and respect their language and culture so do the Tamil speaking people cherish and respect their own language and their traditions. There is no place for violence in this realization. None could force such realization. It is such sincere realization that would take us all on the path of peace and brotherhood. Therefore let my simple symbolic act today pave the way for the unity of the people of the two communities in our Island. May Divine blessings be with all of us!

Justice C.V.Wigneswaran

Chief Minister, Northern Provincial Council

      Congrats & best wishes !

      “..Sinhala people cherish and respect their language and culture so do the Tamil speaking people cherish and respect their own language and their traditions.”

      True !, for that no need to demarcate physical boundaries & you do it all over the country, think this whole Sri Lanka is yours, then all the problems would be over.

        Hope TNA and those who are protesting oath taking at the Presidents house learns from having turned up its nose at contesting the Eastern province in 2009.. what a lot would have been done if it had actually contested in the east! Instead the corrupt clowns Pilliyan and Karuna were allowed to run the show in the East all these years with even more corrupt Muslim politicians..

        Now TNA must work with the Muslims in the east as well and make an an alliance for devolution of power!

      Well said Wiggi! Strategic thinking is the name of the game and you are off to a great start!
      We hope that the newly elected TNA members will work as a TEAM for the northern people’s development. TNA members need to make working for the people rather than fighting among themselves for positions and perks the PRIORITY to SERVE THE PEOPLE THEY CLAIM TO REPRESENT.
      All the ENDLESS pathetic infighting and delay on appointing the ministers means that the real job is being DELAYED and it is people on the ground SUFFER. It is the Tamil people who live in the northern Province who were most affected by the war that will suffer if the TNA does not have a working relationship with the no doubt awful Colombo regime.
      WIgneswaran knows the Rajapakse regime well and will handle them well without the interference of the Disapora which is part of the problem and NOT the solution. The TNA is a mess because it takes two steps forward and ten steps back each time it moves because of the hardline Tamil Diaapora.. This is the case with the Jews in Palestine as well. Diaspora is the most hardline with living far away.
      The Tamil politicians should not behave like their Sinhala counterparts who are CORRUPT and only interested in bettering themselves their positions, power and perks! Let us wait and see!

        When LTTE withdrew from an area they called it strategic withdrawal. Another name for defeat!

        This is same. Strategic booty licking.

        Only SLFP fellows have ever taken oaths before the president. Shameless loser.

        Look how Tamil people treat him at the next election.

          fUKASIMBA;

          go home and sleep.

          At least your president cannot make a good speech on his own like that Tamilan Wigneswaran.

          he is good at speaking to empty seats on assembly halls and
          other HORA KUKUL WEDA.
          try to help him

          What a shame for us Sinhalese.

          Some body found out Fathima FUKA SIMBA is (Lorenzo from Lanka WEB).
          And This FUKA SIMBA Is a planted Virus from the Family Governing Clan to Inflame the Hatred among Different races of Sri lanka.
          And He is getting paid what for he is commenting and showing those to hois handler.
          I suspect that some body from Daily noise or M S’s Nation is supporting for This Fuka Simbas enterprise to make hate campaigns among other Moronic Idiots with Rajafoxes.

          So better to ignore the morons and his bosses.

      Congratulations Justice! Way to go – SET A BETTER EXAMPLE!

      If the TNA can sustain this, and maintain its poise and balance, the Tamils will certainly turn the tide around and rescue democracy in Lanka from from the Rajapassa brothers military dictatorship by SETTING A BETTER EXAMPLE and teaching the Sinhalaya Modayas the meaning of power sharing!

      Sinhala Balu sena types, all modayas, are in dire need of education and rescue from their corrupt and criminal leaders!

        Well said indeed!

        Wigneswaran’s decision to take oaths before President Rajapaksa is NOT detrimental to the cause of Tamils in Sri Lanka as some FOOLISH LAWYERS are saying. Doing so is plain good solid STRATEGIC THINKING – for the LONG TERM benefit of all Tamils living in Lanka.

        The Tamil lawyers Association has clearly lost the plot and seems to be narrow and insular and incapable of strategic thinking to be berating Wiggi for taking oaths before Rajapassa!

      Congratulations Wiggie and Good Luck!

      I have no doubt Wiggie will do his bit to re-establish the dignity of people in the northern province. And to unite the people of this country in the process.

      All Sri Lankans who love their country must help the new Chief Minister. Wiggie needs and deserves our support.

      He faces a daunting task. He will be attacked mercilessly by both Sinhalese and Tamil racists. Both here at home and abroad.

      I look forward to the day he takes a national role in Sri Lankan politics. Rather than the provincial, TNA role.

      Sri Lanka needs men of Wiggie’s integrity and professionalism to govern this nation.

      Cheers!

      Exactly the political culture of Sri Lanka, which is completely outdated, needs a radical change, and it could begin with good examples set by the TNA administration in the North. Wish the new CM and the NPC could devliver pro-people politics and good governance.

    So, Go ahead and Do Justice to all.

    May God, Allah, The Triple Gem, Help You.

    Remember You have taken the oath on the Third Day of the Nava Rathiri. The End of Durga Pooja. Let the fighting end on this last day of Goddess of War.

    Let prosperity begin from tomorrow the 1st day of Luxmi. The Goddess of Wealth.

    Let wisdom prevail from 11th onward the 1st day of Saraswathi. The Goddess of Wisdom. The day you are proposing to have your Cabinet sworn in.

    What a co-incidence!!!

      The final para of your message to our brothers and sisters in the South of our little island country is most poignant and sets out the true intentions of the Tamil community who populate it with them.
      You have taken oaths on a significantly auspicious day as another commentator has mentioned in these columns.That should the ideal perspective for the future.Let the past be past.

        sach

        MR was sharing JVP’s underpants while he was the renowned champion of Human Rights. This was about 20 years ago. He went to UNHRC and begged the Council to act upon his request against the Sovereign State of Sri Lanka.

        Please note JVP was and is a Sinhala/Buddhist terrorist organisation, some of its former cadres are sharing MR’s underpants.

        Also he paid large fees to LTTE terrorists to stop Tamils voting in the presidential election.

        The origin of this cash is still not accounted for hence he was involved in money laundering and aiding and abetting a lethal terrorist outfit.

        What shall we do now?

    “……….internal self determination does not divide the country but facilitate a journey on the path of unity …….”

    The statement itself has conflicting objectives. It is the reality that matters and not fudging words covering up a different intent.

    Look in your neighbourhood. Do people have boundaries and fences surrounding their land, and constant bickering, moving the fence inch at a time, and non-ending legal battles over land which sometimes end up in bloodshed?

    Don’t the Sinhala kids study in Sinhala, Tamil kids in Tamil and the rich kids have the luxury of English, Tamil and Sinhala media to chose from in that order but opt for the first ?.

    Don’t the CM and his entire cabinet have been opting for the English medium all along through thick and thin,resulting in the non Vellala , Annathi,left in the lurch without a portfolio , although she scored the second highest number of votes?.

    Has there been any restrictions on the Tamil people to practice their culture and religion?.

    Wouldn’t It have been useful if the CM spelt out in detail how the Sinhala brethren in the South can help him in these areas?

    It is good to hear that the CM is in a hurry to action the close up perspectives to bring relief to his war affected people.

    How did these war affected people survive for four years, one may wonder?..

    How did Kath Nobel workout that the men in IDP camps in the North earn USD 2000 plus a year working 20 days a month?.

      Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all others, merely because you were born in it- period.

      “How did these war affected people survive for four years, one may wonder?..”

      During WW2 two East German brothers 4 &6 years ate grass for over a month to survive. The younger died and the older became the ambassador to newly formed Sri Lanka in 1972.

      “How did Kath Nobel workout that the men in IDP camps in the North earn USD 2000 plus a year working 20 days a month?.”

      You have been informed that you lied regarding the GDP of SL. She is a Gold medalist in post graduate economics from JNU. She spoke of the income of just an old couple living in a tin shed and selling vegetables in the market thereby earning around $2k per year and its not to be taken as a full survey of income of all folk who live there.

      Patriotism is to politics what faith is to religion: The unquestioned acceptance of information that is either unverified or that may actually be in conflict with factual evidence. Patriotism is the incubator of wars.

      Sumane the Southern Sinhala Buddhist you are a sick man and more importantly the incubator of wars.

    CM Wigneswaran needs a lot of good luck where he finds himself placed thanks to Sampanthan and India. I reiterate again that they really did a big favor to the likes of Mavai S, Sivagnanam who should be a Minister soon for the NPC, Prof. Sitrampalam and editor Vithyaharan.

    http://www.dailymirror.lk/news/36676-wigneswaran-sworn-in-as-cm-before-mr.html

    CM had a choice of taking oaths in front of the military governor or the president despite all the possible war crimes he is accused of by the Tamils. I believe the TNA made the right decision as the Tamils campaign for the removal of both the military governors in the North and the East while the international community closely watches the situation in the NE because of the Tamil pressure. There is zero Muslim pressure on this subject, and that is another reason there is no real sympathy for the Muslims when they are attacked by the BBS from some Tamil sector.

    The two military governors will be removed soon since they have outlived their non existent welcome from mostly all the Tamils including the Karuna-Pillaiyan, Douglas combo. There is both national and international pressure for this change.

    However the Wigneswaran statement ” It is as a part of such an exercise that we decided that I take oaths before the President of this Country.We believe our decision would convey to our brethren our desire to settle our differences within a united Sri Lanka.” is really nonsensical.

    Sri Lanka would remain Undivided for many years, but will never be United, unless there are radical changes from the Sinhalese, Buddhist, and the ruling GOSL. Again, the first process has to be there should be accountability, truth and justice without being in a state of denial of war crimes and crimes against humanity. The perpetrators should be brought to justice and punished in America and Sri Lanka, in their respective countries. (lol).

    More importantly, there should be immediate sharing of the budget funds, as well as foreign aid, grants, and loans in a equitable manner including compensating for the 66 years of gross and willful neglect.

    Ports (including fisheries harbors)and Airports (National and international) are good examples. The difference in the past 5 years alone would be around 10 Billion dollars. On every ministry subject it would grand differences except the MOD, where the roads and railways are mainly for the benefit of the military cleverly camouflaged as civilian development. That is another big Rajapakse lie.

    Without funds from the treasury and powers from the Supreme Court the NPC would be just another glorified municipal council. The military, Police and UDA will have all the funds and power which are directly controlled by Gothabaya Rajapakse.

    Hats off to our very srilankan Wigneshawaran

    Sinhala, Tamil Muslim people have lived in harmony in this country throughout islands history – long before these catch phrases like unity in harmony came in to being, our ancestors had amply demonstrated the actual practise. Its not people but its politicians who ride them to power that causes all this ethnic hatreds and wreak havoc.

    Wignaeshwaran has shown that he can rise above petty politics by taking oaths in front of the country’s president. That shows his thinking- we are one nation – yes you will fight for your rights – you should !!!
    we sinhalese fight for ours – but still we are one nation

    Juse. tice(Retd) Wigneswaran,

    Congratulations on assumption of office. Your message is sober and in the right direction. There is much to be done, but the path will be hard and arduous.

    I wish you will address a similar message to the Tamils too. They have respected you enough to vote for you overwhelmingly. Now they have to trust you to do what you have set out. The Tamils both here and in the Diaspora, should let you do your work, without constantly barking at your heels. They should be also sober in both criticism and praise.

    May this Navarathiri (Nine nights) spell a new dawn for the Tamils and Sri Lanka! may you become the beacon the Tamils urgently need.

    May President Rajapakse and his government be wise to take forward this historical opportunity. We have missed many such opportunities in the past and I tremble at the very that this opportunity too may be
    missed.

    May all the Tamils who support you lend their shoulders to take forward your agenda. May those who do not agree, keep their silence for a few years and not hinder you. May those who have been elected along with you, be a help and not a hindrance.

    What is achieved and what is seen to being done, will speak volumes than empty rhetoric.

    Destiny has placed a very heavy load on your shoulders, which I am hopeful are broad and strong enough to bear it. Please never forget that the war-affected and marginalized Tamils are your priority and not the favour seekers and gold diggers who will swarm around you like flies.

      What new dawn this is the same thing Thalaivar did in his last hour.

      Rajafucksa will be a fool to fall for Viggie leaving Douglas Devananda. Viggie will have to bend backwards to satisfy Devananda pretty soon.

      Tamils lack dignity. All the Tamil sacrifices are just worthless dirt by this act of treason.

      Did 140,000 Tamils die for their vote winner to go begging to the feet of the genocidal Chingalam military governor and the commander in chief?

      He visited both after the election!

      If Tamils want dignity, display they HAVE dignity first. Bending to the enemy is a sure sign of lack of dignity.

      May all his work FAIL.

      The President has been reported to have gifted a beautiful Pilaiyar ( Gana Deviyo) statue to chief Minister Wigneswaran after he was sworn. The new CM was apparently over joyed and is seen holding the statue in many photographs taken at the event.

      A very thoughtful and profound gesture by the President. A good beginning indeed!

      No doubt he will.

      Remember, few weeks ago, before the election, MR insisted, people even would not recognize who Vignaswaran is. The opposite is the result. That alone pointed out that MR would not like Vi to even compete for the position. Though he has to show the world today, the other way around. Kapanna bari atha imbinna hadanawa… by MR.
      Anyway, he is the best candidate as many of us thought. Now wait and see MR regime will tackle with Vi ^s way of performances. More well educated will enter lanken politics, no doubt that things will have to be better for the country and nation. Problem is today, the opposite is the case for the parliamentary majority. That perhaps will make difficulties to Vi in the future.

    ” I sincerely ask the Sinhala people to realize that to the same extent the Sinhala people cherish and respect their language and culture so do the Tamil speaking people cherish and respect their own language and their traditions. There is no place for violence in this realization. None could force such realization. It is such sincere realization that would take us all on the path of peace and brotherhood”

    We have confidence that you will succeed in your endevours to win the hearts of average Sri Lankan irrespective of his etnicity.

    Let us all make a vow to win our rights back with only peaceful means, we will get blows but shall not return, shall not retaliate when abused, we will be firm in our resolve that we shall not be second to anyone and be equal to any other citizen of this country. We will be a part of the country and not separated from our Sinhalese brethren – sahotheraya.

      For the Sinhala people there is a place to assert their language – the island nation of SL. Sinhala people don’t go to Tamil Nadu and demand Sinhala language.

      For the Tamil people there is a place to assert their language – Tamil Nadu. Tamil people shouldn’t be in SL and demand Tamil language.

      Crossing 32 kilometres is easier than these racist demands of Tamil Nadu language speaking people.

        All what you are writing/hallucinating in a public forum is due to extreme illness.

        You mean to say that people who lived only ’32 kilometers’ away waited until Vijaya and his 700 accomplices landed first on Sri Lankan shores from Orissa which is 3,250 km away? Everyday Tamil Nadu fishermen crosses into Sri Lankan waters and never thought of landing and living here. Tamils came here before Vijaya and Co and there are ample historical evidences but we only raise Mahavamsa that is a fiction and mythology combined. You cannot consider a book tat boasts about hybrid of human and a beast seriously.

        Instead of talking about things you do not know, talk about practicalities. All there communities are here to stay and the leaders must accommodate all of them.

        And for the Sinhalese who came from India, they too can go back to India and practice their culture and language there and leave this country for the true natives, the Veddahs.

        French in Quebeck, Canada, were not told to go back to France to assert their language, they are allowed to administer themselves in their mother tongue, yes, that is civilisation. In Sri Lnka Sinhalese speaking military, police and the governors dictate what is to be done in Tamil speaking North and East, yes, this is colonisation.

        In Switzerland people soeak different languages (Intalian, German, French etc) and administer their Cantons in their mother tongues. In Singapore people soeak Chinese, Malay and Tamil and all these languages are made official with English being the LINK.

        All these countries have advanced beyond the reach of ‘Sinhala Only’ Sri Lanka. ONE language – Sinhala Only -was forced in 1956 and the country was plunged into riots, pogroms, massacres and genocide, we still borrow and borrow and borrow without an end on sight. A smaller contry Singapore is leading the Asian countries because her leader Lee Kuan Yew decided multi-language policy will bury the differences and promote unity and prosperity. Professionals and housemaids from Sri Lankan, Malaysia and Indonesia work there illegally and legally for better renumeration. This is proverbial music to the donkey. You cannot get it because you see no reason, no justice but trying to create mischief at the expense of poor Sri Lankans.

    Of course he had to take oaths before Rajapakse.
    That was obvious from the beginning.
    If the TNA won the elections how else was it going to form a Provincial Government?
    Those who say it was wrong to take oaths before Rajapakse are complete idiots. These are the people who did not want the TNA to contest in the first place.
    However the formality of constitutional processes is one thing, having any faith in Rajapakse and his regime is another. Don’t trust them!

      What an idiotic thing! Typical.

      This shows the complete subservient nature of Tamils’ leader.

      Now he cannot go back. TNA is already divided. Those who made sacrifices (e.g. Ananthi) have been sidelined.

      If you trust the Unitary Constitution, Tamils’ future is sealed to doom.

      Do not shed corocodile tears for Tamils. Judge Wigneswaran and TNA were elected overwhelmly by Tamils because they trust them. You are either from the South or a supporter of murderous EPDP. EPDP was humiliated by Tamils. Do not dare to advise them.

    Shameless loser!

    He has already betrayed Tamil peoples’ trust.

    Remember what happened to Thalaivar when he similarly went begging to Chingalams?

    Mark my word, the same fate awaits you. Tamil traitor. Tamil Nadu leaders should severely reprimand this coward for his act of treason. Tamil Tigers should not spare this traitor. For the dignity of Tamils this traitor must not be spared.

      Fukushima I am interested to know what you would have done had you been in this mans place.

      This man is trying to ensure that the Eelam Tamils can live with dignity and in peace in Sri Lanka without Thamileelam.

      I suggest that he be allowed to move forward and I suggest that he be given all the help that he may need.

      He appears to have recognized the gulf between the Tamils and the people of Thamileelam and in this he is wise and his wisdom may help the one million Indian Sri Lankans living on the island to come into their own with their sinhalese brothers and sisters who share a common Indian origin and heritage while the people of Thamileelam come to terms with their own.

      The future lies hidden beyond the horizon and what it holds we do not know. The boarders of nations are known to change with time in keeping with the actions of those within them and without. The world looks ahead with anxiety etched upon its brows as volatile changes loom ahead like towering clouds of darkness. The third eye causes the wise to tremble at what it shows them that may be made to come to pass by thoughtless acts of passion. We do not need to add our egotistic wrangles to the volatility that must accompany the closing of the age.

      May the many curses that you have liberally showered upon this man turn to blessings and may their fruit help build for you and all of us a future that brings hope and happiness.

    Being a Sinhalese , I should appreciate your wonderful speech which enables all the communities to be friendly without any problem.
    Please SIR, unite all the people irrespective of cast, creed and religion.
    We need a country free of corruptions for the younger generation.
    Therefore, it’s your duty to be an exemplary character to do the justice specially for the war affected our Tamil friends, Muslim friends and Sinhalese friends.
    Then the friends in Southern part in this country also should be strengthen.
    Ultimate result is to have a peaceful country where all communities can enjoy the human rights.

    We hope and pray that this is a new beginning for all communities: Sinhalese should have big hearts to accept all minorities : BBS and it’s cohorts should be shame to see this type of reconciliation: Sinhalese should realise their limitations: they do not need to bully minorities simply because they are majorities. Justice should be equal to all. Look what happened to Qdafi/ Sadam/ Mahinda too needs to learn lessons from history ? Power still not going in his hands? Who knows what will happen next day in politics: He should use this gold opportunities to make all communities equal and all people are equal: if injustice continues destruction will befall on SL not only in his family but on entire nation
