Is The Chief Minister Of The NPC Ethically & Morally Fit To Govern?

By Muttukrishna Sarvananthan

Dr. Muttukrishna Sarvananthan

The Chief Minister of the Northern Province Mr. Canagasabapathy Viswalingam Wigneswaran made a “private visit” to India in November 2014. It was reported that he was invited to deliver a memorial lecture in Chennai to commemorate a civil liberties activist Mr. K.G. Kannapiran, who is a person from the legal fraternity. Later Mr. Wigneswaran also attended a World Congress of Buddhism and Hinduism in New Delhi which was graced by Dalai Lama, among others.

At the World Congress of Buddhism and Hinduism Mr. Wigneswaran had complained to the Dalai Lama about attacks on and destruction of Hindu temples in Sri Lanka. It is true that, during the time of the previous Rajapaksa regime, places of worship of minority religions came under frequent attack by religious bigots who had the tacit patronage of the ruling coterie. As a matter of fact many more Churches and Mosques were attacked than Hindu temples; in this circumstance, the Chief Minster complaining about the attacks on Hindu temples only smacks of parochial partisanship.

It was unbecoming of the Chief Minister of a multi-religious province to highlight the attacks on Hindu temples only to the Dalai Lama. The Chief Minister should be aware that the population of Christian faith comprises twenty percent and the population of Islamic faith three percent of the total population of the Northern Province according to the Census 2012.

It was also reported that Mr. Wigneswaran had also paid two other visits in India which are ethically and morally reprehensible.

WigneswaranOne was to an ashram of late Swami (sic) Premananda in Trichy in Tamilnadu. Premananda was born in Matale (Sri Lanka) but moved to Trichy (India) after the 1983 riots and set-up an ashram there. He was arrested by the police on charges of rape and murder of few female disciples within the ashram, convicted, and sentenced to life imprisonment in the 1990s. He died in prison on 21 February 2011.

It was disgraceful for the Chief Minister of the Northern Province, Mr. Wigneswaran, to pay respects to a rapist and murderer while violence against women (including rape) in his province is rampant, which Mr. Wigneswaran often blames on the security forces personnel. His visit to the ashram of a deceased criminal is an affront to women who outnumber men in his province and who had undergone immense suffering during the course of the long civil war. Even worse is the fact that, in April 2015 Mr. Wigneswaran had written to the Prime Minister of India pleading on behalf of the family members of the disciples of Premananda who are co-convicts in the rape and murder cases and serving life sentences in the prisons in Tamilnadu.

It is also important to note that the disciples of Premananda, including the Chief Minister Wigneswaran and the Minister for Resettlement and Hindu Religious Affairs Mr.D.M. Swaminathan, had a commemorative meeting for the late Premananda in Barnes Place, Colombo, in March 2015. It was disgraceful for the Chief Minister “Hon. Justice (sic) CV Wigneswaran” (as noted by the Northern Provincial Council website www.np.gov.lk) and the Minister of Hindu Religious Affairs to be worshiping a rapist and murderer. The politicians are expected to be role models for the citizens they represent; not to patronise rapists or murderers.

Mr. Wigneswaran is also infamous for frequent sexist gaffes (against women) in public. One such was against the former Chief Secretary of the Northern Province (top most civil servant at the provincial level), Mrs. Ramesh Wijeyaluckshmi (the first ever female Chief Secretary in the country and a widow). Whatever the political differences between the Chief Minister and the Chief Secretary, the insinuation of a sexual nature against the former Chief Secretary sometime in 2014 is an affront to women in general and the widows in particular. There are unusually high numbers of widows in the Northern Province (estimated to be between thirty and forty thousand) as a result of the long drawn out civil war whose plight has been neglected by the Tamil National Alliance provincial administration in the NP. The Chief Minister Wigneswaran (aka Justice Wigneswaran) should have professional decorum in public pronouncements.

This author also learns that the Chief Minister Wigneswaran had met the head of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS – National Volunteer or Patriotic Organisation) in New Delhi in November 2014. The RSS is a Hindu supremacist organisation notoriously famous for the murder of Mahathma Gandhi and frequent attacks and pogroms against minority Christian and Muslim communities in India and their places of worship since independence to date. The Chief Minster should explain the purpose of meeting the RSS chief to the people of Northern Province. Mr. Wigneswaran also should explain the difference/s (if any) between the RSS and the Buddhist supremacist organisation, Bodu Bala Sena (BBS – or the Buddhist Power Force), in Sri Lanka, which he often chastises for championing hatred against the people of minority religions.

Furthermore, the Chief Minister (CM) of Northern Province (NP) appears to dodge meeting useful persons from overseas and within. It was reported that the Malaysian Special Envoy on Infrastructure to India and Southern Asia (with ministerial rank), Mr. Samy Vellu (former longest serving President of the Malaysian Indian Congress and the second longest serving minister in the country), visiting Sri Lanka in March 2015 wanted to meet the Chief Minister to explore investment opportunities in the NP, but the CM had not responded to the request for a meeting. The Chief Minister should be aware that Malaysians are one of the largest investors in Sri Lanka and the NP should proactively seek private or public Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) from Malaysia. Some members of the Northern Provincial Council also complained publicly last year that they are unable to meet the Chief Minister to talk about provincial matters.

This author also learns that the CM of NP had attempted to hire a former Tamil Tiger mole in the UN who held a high position in the UNDP office in Colombo (deputy head of the Umbrella Project) during the time of the ceasefire (who had subsequently worked for the TRO office in Colombo since the Tsunami) and an Australian national currently living in Sydney to be an advisor to him in early 2014. Apparently the mother of the former Tamil Tiger mole is said to be a family friend of the Chief Minister. It is learnt that the previous Rajapaksa government had turned down the request by Mr. Wigneswaran to provide dual nationality to this former Tamil Tiger mole in order for him to be hired as an advisor to the CM.

Rasiah Nimalan Karthikeyan (aforesaid former Tamil Tiger mole at the UN office in Colombo) has recently accompanied the Chief Minister in his “private visit” to the UK and USA as the “Diary Secretary, Executive Assistant and Advisor to the Chief Minister”, according to The Sunday Times of July 12, 2015.

Nimalan Karthikeyan had told this author in the early 2000s that he is a Chartered Marketer by profession and worked as a sales executive at the Oberoi Hotel (now called Cinnamon Grand) in Colombo for long time. He claimed that subsequently he had obtained a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the Sri Jayawardanepura University in Colombo. Though he had no qualification or work experience in the development field he was appointed as the Deputy Project Manager of the Umbrella Project of the UNDP during the time of ceasefire in 2002 due to political influence. Nimalan Karthikeyan, a pukka (perfect) panthangkaraya (bootlicker), has had double dealings with the LTTE and the UN in Sri Lanka functioning as interpreter during the UN missions to Kilinochchi during the ceasefire time 2002 – 2004.

All the foregoing indicates serious lack of judgement on the part of the Chief Minister of the Northern Province who is a retired judge of the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka. The war-torn people of the Northern Province deserve a much better person than an inept, religious bigot, and sexist Chief Minister Mr. Wigneswaran.

    Dr.Sarvananda,

    This is serious indictment on the CM of NP!

    I have had concerns about him for sometime and have expressed them in CT, several times.

    He is not judicious. He is also illogical and a personality unsuitable to be the first CM of NP in a time of transition from war and destruction to a permanent peace and progress.

    Although, I had hoped for much from him, he has been an utter disappointment.
    I will not comment on his religiosity, but would question his spirituality.

    What is most worrying is that he trying become a cheap, two penny, politician.

    The many stories circulating about him are worrying.

          These guys flaunting their PhDs with a Dr in front of their titles are an egocentric lot – a kind of know all – Remember Dayan Jayatilake the arrogant know all.

          They all lack commonsense or practicality. Like empty vessels they make lot of noise. They don’t realize that many people are better aware of what is happening than these idiots.

            When the retired SC Judge Mr.C.V.Wigneswaren was elected with an overwhelming vote by the people of the NP as CM he came under public scrutiny, and it is not unnatural that every act or opinion he voices will be subject to public evaluation.
            In this case the fact stated by the author of the article about the fake Guru Swami Premananda is a well known fact to many whether they are of the Hindu faith or not.
            The author was only making the point that a person who is gullible enough to NOT differentiate between a true Guru and a falsehood is a person who is not fit enough to hold public office, that is all.
            Please judge for yourselves on the facts and not on angered emotion or mistaken loyalty.
            For that matter I too know Mr.Wigneswaran well and have a lot of regards for him.

            Thanks Thiru.

            It looks like sour grapes. May be Sarvananda was looking for a post from NPC.

            A friend of mine has shared this with me
            “Dr. Muttukrishna Sarvananda has suddenly embarked on an attack on Justice Wigneswaran who is widely respected for his integrity as A Supreme Court Judge and as a person.

            There must be some motive for this attack. It may be Chief Minister’s repeated emphasis on the ‘Genocide’ resolution moved by him and passed by the Northern Provincial Council recently. I have not heard this so called researcher attack any one else so personally citing several personal omissions and commissions of that person.

            There are so many criminal and acts thuggery committed by other politicians, especially from the majority Community.

            But he has not dared to criticise them or attack them in person like this. I have not heard of anyone from the Sinhalese Community attack Wigneswaran so viciously.”

              Anpu,

              I have not met Dr.Sarvananthan personally. However, I have read his publications. He is only one in Jaffna who has collected data on various subjects and come forward to give them meaning. I admire his efforts, because he has tried hard to be objective. He knows more than we do. It is not fair to attribute motives to him.
              We as a community tend to back one horse. This is untenable anymore . We have done this in the past decades and paid a heavy price. Let us listen to contradictory opinions and investigate whether they are justified.

              I hope you do not think I am pontificating. I do so, because you are a person who seeks the truth.

                Dr.RN,

                Since Sarvananthan went back to Jaffna, he had to do something, so he came up with the grandiose name of “Point Pedro Institute of Development” for his one-man consulting outfit, and peddles some data, but people should be wary of accepting it at face value because it has not been controlled for quality, scrutinized or peer-reviewed.

                I have personal experience of his lies– [Edited out]
                As for the alleged misdeeds of some “Swami” and trying to link him to the CM, it is a problem with society as a whole, including those who criticize him. Tamils as a society need to become more and more rational and self-confident, rather than believing in all the contradictory fairy-tales and mythology of religions. When that happens in the society at large, the CM will also have fewer contradictions in his positions. But it is laughable for this ethically challenged guy who has lied before, to question CVW’s ethical and moral fitness.

              Anpu,

              You are definitely on to something!

              I have recollection of Sarva coming to the blog scene a few years ago, with two or three consecutive articles punishing with impunity who but a 17 year old M.I.A. the Tamil rapper on her way up to as an international celebrity, after she appeared on international TV condemning the ongoing atrocities of the Sri Lankan army on Tamil civilians! What a show of bootlicking for the regime Sarva’s grumblings turned out to be?!

              If Sarva and his fan Rajasingham have objective concerns, could we have a show of the publications this single-most important economist in Jaffna has written recently on the need to bring in Mahaveli water to the peninsula, the flag-ship issue that Rajasingham has been wailing about just in the last three weeks as the utmost, single issue of the highest priority facing the Tamils, overshadowing by far all other issues, including missing-persons, illegal state occupation of private lands, alleged state-aided drug-mafia activities, and a horde of others.

              C V Wigneshwarn may have flaws, but he did one solid thing as the chief minster of the NPC:

              He let the whole world know that what happened, and is is still happening is GENOCIDE OF TAMILS IN SRI LANKA.

              As far as Tamils are concerned this is the most important thing for their survival in the island in the long run, with hopefully the international community’s assistance.

              Anpu shares a profound insight:

              “There must be some motive for this attack”.

              Of course there is :It is to expose a politician who has been engaging in questionable actions and expressed truly horrendous statements. Visting and hobnobbing with RSS and paying homage to gurus who under the cloak of their holy robes violate their weak disciples can not be overlooked.
              Indeed his appearance and his views and his chosen heroes bespeak a Jaffna version of the doctrine of hindutuva and an exact ideological parallel to the BBS.
              One last point:Why is it both Tamil spokesmen like Anpu,Thiru and the redoubtable Kali, as well Sinhala spokesmen such as Off the Cuff, and the one who does not seem have read the Ramayana who calls himself Vibushana, always resort to personal motives such as career advancement or bribery — without an iota of evidence –to deal with their critics?
              It certainly bespeaks both an intellectual poverty, since they are unable to deal with the relevant arguments, as well a sense of desperation.
              Indeed I think that now Wigneswaran has been revealed in all his glory he is major disappointment and does not bode well either for the Tamils as a whole or for Sri Lanka. A balanced and judicious and well-tempered mind?Hardly.

            Anpu,

            Yes, but it short snippets, due to Internet problems I am experiencing in Jaffna. What I heard, does not help me change my previously held opinion.

            I agree with him on the suggestion every child in this country should learn three languages. I remember, being ridiculed for making the same suggestion in CT.

            I also wonder whether he knows the difference between religiosity and spirituality. Spirituality should not take him to a man like Premananda.

            Please do not think I hold anything personal against The CM. I expected a sea change in how we do politics, when he was elected CM. His performance in terms of tangible achiements, is what matters

            to me.

            I will listen to the hour long interview once the Internet service improve. If I have reasons to recant my comments, I will not hesitate to do so.

              I do not agree with you on this. Has any one provided ADEQUATE resources which are necessary to do all what he wants to do?
              Resources are not available. Then the governor, ….

              DR RN,

              CM Is an honest man and what he has been manifesting in abundance is that he has no guile and shrewdness. He is also emotional and genuinely wanting to do what is best for the people of the North and largely for Tamil speaking peoples.

              What I do not fathom is that he pays reverence to the Thaliver (VP) as a prelude to commencing his speeches. I think he is completely lost the plot on this one and thus closing all the doors for any form of advancement on talks under his watch. I am sure he has listened to many Tamil people and their grievances. He eloquently explained about the state-sponsored prostitution and drug-trafficing that were unleashed by the former regime on the Tamils. We all know that the Rajapaksas wanted to destroy the Tamil community cohesion through unethical influences. But he as an educated person of such caliber should know that no amount of eloquent speeches with facts will be meaningless to the Sinhala folks as soon as he praises the Thaliver! A solution must come from the Sinhala leaders unless a solution is forced on them by a superior force. With this in mind, I think CM is loosing the plot and succeeding in isolating himself from the national equation.

                Burning Issue,

                Eloquent or not, he is barking up the wrong tree. Prostutution, alcoholism, violence, dishonesty and drug trafficking /addiction are largely internally generated problems in the North. These are the consequence of the violent, brutal and dehumanising war. If the CM , who is a retired judge cannot recognise this aetiology and be honest and bold to articulate it, he has already failed. He should read about the ugly aspects of the post-war
                story in Germany. He will find a parallel to what is happening here.

                  Please you are an intelligent man and you know that Jaffna was taken backed from the LTTE back in 1996. There were no menacing issues such as alchocolism, prostitution, drug trafficking and et al until May 2009. It was only after the demise of the LTTE, we started to see such menaces.

                  I was told by a Consultant Doctor in the UK that there were state sponsored prostitution rings and drug pushing and the CM substantiated this eloquently. I rather believe him than anyone else on this. You can be criticle of him but not blankety.

          Could not the same be said of most of us, including yourself? you must substantiate what you say. Now that you have said it, please give reasons so that people could judge whether there is cause for such an opinion being formed. It is good for humanity to know so that proper judgments could be made. I will join you in condemnation if there are sufficient justifications.

          Are you getting these insights f the “mind-reading” capability you earned at Vet school as you proudly claimed some time ago? Or is that from the equivalent of tuk-tuk survey? Your versions of ground-realities should be put exactly there – underground! Way underground!!

          Remember you were the one who was resolutely, single-mindedly and unwaveringly confident that MR was an absolutely trustworthy and honorable, man – and that lasted until allegedly he began sending his pit-bulls to recover as you failed to live up to your end of the bargain.

If he hasn’t killed at least couple, I agree with all these DR guys, he is not qualified to be a leader in Siri Lanka.. Ethically and morally not fit to govern Siri Lankan people who love to count dead….

      Dr RN,
      There is nothing serious on the CM as this stupid Dr Muthukrishna Sarvananthan try to put his finger toward CV Wigneswaran. The so called Muthukrishna Sarvananthan must be a paid worker of Mahinda Rajapakse.
      He himself acknowledged that his visit to India is a “Private”. It is not a secret that CV Wigneswaran is a Hindu. He made a complaint to Dalai Lama about attack on Hindu Temples because this was done in the name of Buddhism. Yes there are number of Muslim and Chiristan places were attacked by Sinhala Buddhist Fundamentalists, particularly under brutal Mahinda Rajapakse. He did not deny that and you should not expect him to make a complaint about these attacks on his “private visit”.

      All other accusations in this article are rubbish. Timing of the article points to me it is another propaganda coup for Mahinda or Douglas. Law & order, corruption, the rehabilitation of thousands of widows who lost their bread winners due to the brutal governance of Buddhist Sinhala regimes and military, security of the people and freedom of speech are much more important issues than these petty issues. Do you want the North should have a CM from the former Military Governer and his secretary of Northern Province?

      If you think CV wigneswaran is not fit to be a CM who do you think fit to be a CM for North?

      Dear Narendran,
      I have known Wigneswaran for a long time. He was a Prefect at Royal College which in those days only a handful are able to acieve. His record as a judge both in district and supreme coourt noteworthy. More than that he does not have any baggage like questionable integrity or criminality. The move to bring him as Chief Minister by Sampanthan was a brilliant one, which came as a surprise to me. When he entered this political arena, I was thinking why after leading a honourable life he is getting into a morass. We all know that politics is a dirty game where any honest person cannot last long in it without his name being tarnished. From the time he became chief minister with a overwhelming support from the people, vested interests who did not like that move started to undermine him. He as an educated person and a retired judge of the supreme court commanding respect from international community. The Sinhala racists and other anti-Tamil elements did not like it and are trying to get rid of him. Therefore I will not be suprised that such articles will continue to appear in the press in future. No one in this world is perfect and Wigneswaran is not an exception to this rule. His problem is that he is a forthright person and very candid in his statements. The views of few vociferous elements cannot be taken into account when majority of Tamils seem to be behind him.

      Muttukrishna Sarvananthan

      Thank you for the great article. I have a mixed feeling about the CM-NP. He is indeed a good CM but there are issues that he could have avoided. I do not like him chanting Hindu mantra before his speech. He should have stopped doing this once he had become the CM. How would the Tamils/Hindus feel if Maithree chants Pirith before his speech?
      And also, the CM NP should have stopped all association with rapist cum murderer Premananda once he was convicted of charges. Also,the CM should not have praised/credited Prabaharan-the-mass murderer

      I would love to see people like Muttukrishna Sarvananthan becoming the CM NP in the very near future and doing a great service to our people.

      Dr. R.. N,

      Are you an expert on spirituality? I have listened to a few speeches of CVW on spiritual topics which were quite absorbing.
      India is a country that gave birth to four religions two of which, namely Hinduism and Buddhism are two major religions in the world with their sub divisions. If a conference is held by a Hindu organisation to which a leading Buddhist leader is invited as a main guest, doesn’t that reflect tolerance and spirituality? What is wrong if CVW too was honoured with an invitation?
      I have read articles by Dr. Sarvananthan before which were quite interesting. But I wonder what had irked him to make this tirade against a man of integrity and one who was popularly elected as CM by the people? And the timing of this article? Any ulterior motive? Have you thought on those lines especially when the article is an attack on the personality of a well respected person?

      Come on Kanam Naren PhD,

      While you were crying for water for Tamil, there was 24 hours water cut in Colombo. Then only it became clear who had hired to cry you water from TNA. If the Appe Anduwa wants to cut the water in Colombo they hire a “Kodarri Kamppu” (Axe handle) to attack TNA for water. Shame on you for allowing to be used as “Kulaththai keudukkira Koddari Kaampu” (Cannibal).
      Starting from senanayake samudra- Galoya through Mahavili crash project up to Brother Prince’s water Park Sin-hala Intellectual’s governments have spent billions of rupees on their water development. Now they do not have water in Colombo. To camouflage that shame, they are hiring an axe handle to propaganda for them. After Tsunami, UN had paid money to develop water facilities sharing with Tamils. LTTE shut the Mavilaru after unsuccessfully talked to Old King’s government for water.

      Muththu has won C.N.Annaththurai’s eloquence in this Blah, Blah. There is talk about Anna’ talent on speeches. One time Anna participated in a speech competition, in that, the heading would be written on a blackboard only after the candidate comes to stage to speak on that. That is tough. But, when Anna came to stage, the person supposed to write the heading would not get up and write anything at all. That is really tough. Anna would wait … wait.. wait.. Then it was almost time for him get down from the stage and go. But he turned around the table and started with his own heading. “Verru Palakai” (Blank Board). I would say friend Muttu has created his “paniyaaram” even without “Pachchai thanni” (cold water)! The comedian Muttukishna has showed a fire work without one single point to oppose CV.

      What has been proved here is “Kaaichcha Maraththukkuthaan kalleri Vilum”. (The tree with fruit has to take stone throws) There is no way CV can avoid this type of Kalleri. Here it has been desperately demonstrated letting CV to go without “muddukaddai” (stopping wedge to wheel) would be a irreparable damage to them and the Royalties. So this “Blank Board” article has been attempted. I am sure, had he started, Mutthukirishna would have written his entire life about the rapes and murders committed by the EPDP and its southern partners, with whom CV has been(and still been) talking and trying to make even deals. Instead of ploughing into that statistics, he selected the murder somebody committed with whom CV had only a flimsy relationship on the basis of religion. Muttu would be eloquent about the crime committed by a samy which was confirmed by the court, but he would not dare to pronounce that EPDP leader is not ready face Chennai Court and his partners in the South not ready to face ICC at Hague. So he is banking his back bottom that the samy was a convicted one! Pooh…..

      The army’s atrocities on the Northern widows have been accepted up to UN as excessive crime. He is covering it as something like two drunkards fight at the street. Then, his low grade mentality is wishing to connect CV and Jaffna Widows. I don’t have to repeat Vijeyaluxmy how much kept the Colombo in her hand and flexed the judgement of the courts. She and Chandrasiri ordered CV if he has to leave Jaffna and go to Colombo, he has to take permission from them! CV is person takes care of Tamils problems even during his vacation. Even Obama does not do to that an extent. . So the Widow Vijeyaluxmy had put an order to CV that he should not stray without her jealousy watch. The Jaffna’s only Comedian Mutthu collected statistics already showing Parkinson, Alzheimer syndromes. If Kanam PhD Naren shows, it is ok. That is the EPDP’s Diseases. But now somebody additional too….? That is how the CV’s illegal treatment of a widow ended.

      He is reminding the Malaysian investment in Lankave to CV. Malaysia known as 5% country in the western world. Lankave is known as 40% country. Then they forged deals in between Lankave and Malasia at 45%. Only Muttu did know that, but all others knew it. So a kudukuduppai was bringing that massage from Malaysia to Lankave. CV refused to dance to this Kuddukuppai rhythm. Malaysia was an important partner on investments of the 2009 war and the crime. Both, Sonia and Old King were using Malaysia to suppress any negotiations going between Lankave’s Sinhala Intellectual government and the Tigers. Malaysia even offered to TNA to bring peace to LTTE. It is that kind of comedy our friend Mutthu is talking.

      All what Muttukrishna done is identified him as a publicity seeker like Aananthasangari. Watch what an “asal pantham” he is”. (In Tamil, sometimes, we use metaphores, proverb like ting for every paragraph. That is where the PhD comedian slipped and falls like this.) He is a Tamil, he is writing in English. He had come across a phrase “Asal Pantham”.”a pukka (perfect) panthangkaraya (bootlicker), ” Come on Muttu, “Bootlicker is Adivarudi” “torchbearer is panthangkaraya (a pantham carrier like Muttu)”.Karumam. This was sheer waste of a desk and chair at the PhD class

      I tend to refrain from writing comments, having to read CT articles and there comments. I find most comments to be rubbish, waste of time, out of point, egoistic shown by the comments writers. At times, unwanted muck thrown at the author or on the subject matter. However, I felt that this author was out of his depth and this first comment seems to be conniving and colluding with author’s thinking.

      I am sure there is no necessity for me to defend this great soul, who had been a Supreme court Judge and now the CM of NPC. CVW’s talks and actions seems very sensible, and humane. The author possibly with his doctorate is finding some difficulty to write. On what subjects? From the photo attached to this article this author seems to be young and immature. Sure, lacks life experience to write about people, those specially holding public office, that too on people much older than him, with vast knowledge and life experience. “Kill your EGO, to cleanse your Karma”!

      However Dr RN writes so much he being a veterinary Doctor, Find his thinking to be in line with the health of animals. A parochial, anti Tamil, showing off as an ally to the former corrupt ruler, an Egoistic writer, he knows it all!

      Dr Sarvananda Start having a meaningful life, use your strength and virtues to serve people with an optimistic outlook. Time to time question yourself ask your conscious, what you write about others are they of real facts or just a fiction? Adopt positive coping strategies to deal with your own conflicts and stresses in life. Chose a desirable life, or a pleasant life or a meaningful life and use a positive thinking Don’t display your negative thinking. No place for emotion be realistic. Om Shanti!

        “Dr Sarvananda Start having a meaningful life, use your strength and virtues to serve people with an optimistic outlook. Time to time question yourself ask your conscious, what you write about others are they of real facts or just a fiction?”

        By defeating the LTTE and subsequently dislodging the tyrant MR, the country has somewhat regained it’s democratic platform. Dr Sarvanatha has a democratic right to critique the CM. He has outlined his rational as to why he has taken this position. You on the other hand, very welcome to challenge him on facts; if you cannot do this, it is best you say nothing!

        I do not know the facts and I cannot challenge him. However, I do know that the CM pays reverence to VP, which is, in my view, ill thought out and foolish on the part of CM.

      This is serious indictment on the CM of NP!

      *** Can you give me some answers if your brain is still working.

      1) When did this Sarvanada become a State Prosecutor to lay Charges.
      2) When is the Committal Proceedings of CM
      3) Has the Charge Sheet been Prepared.

      The many stories circulating about him are worrying.

      Is your worry limited to Just the Victims of the Intellctual Abuse by the CM. Or are you worried about the damage to the Intergrity of the CM.

    OUR CHIEF MINISTER
    It was reported that Mr. Wigneswaran had paid two other visits in India which are ethically and morally reprehensible.
    One was to an ashram of late Swami (sic) Premananda in Trichy in Tamilnadu. Premananda was born in Matale (Sri Lanka) but moved to Trichy (India) after the 1983 riots and set-up an ashram there. He was arrested by the police on charges of rape and murder of few female disciples within the ashram, convicted, and sentenced to life imprisonment in the 1990s. He died in prison on 21 February 2011.

    It was disgraceful for the Chief Minister of the Northern Province, Mr. Wigneswaran, to pay respects to a rapist and murderer while violence against women (including rape) in his province is rampant, which Mr. Wigneswaran often blames on the security forces personnel. His visit to the ashram of a deceased criminal is an affront to women who outnumber men in his province and who had undergone immense suffering during the course of the long civil war. Even worse is the fact that, in April 2015 Mr. Wigneswaran had written to the Prime Minister of India pleading on behalf of the family members of the disciples of Premananda who are co-convicts in the rape and murder cases and serving life sentences in the prisons in Tamilnadu.

    It is important to note that the disciples of Premananda, including the Chief Minister Wigneswaran and the Minister for Resettlement and Hindu Religious Affairs Mr.D.M. Swaminathan, had a commemorative meeting for the late Premananda in Barnes Place, Colombo, in March 2015. It was disgraceful for the Chief Minister “Hon. Justice (sic) CV Wigneswaran” (as noted by the Northern Provincial Council website http://www.np.gov.lk) and the Minister of Hindu Religious Affairs to be worshiping a rapist and murderer.

      Totally agree. We need a Sinhalese leader because Tamils are an ungovernable lot. That is why they are all over the place either living under white rule or controlled by some one else. Otherwise they will fight among themselves and pull everything down with it. Like VP the pipe piper who marched all the rats into the mullai sea!!

        You further say:

        “Otherwise they will fight among themselves and pull everything down with it.”

    Wigneswaran’s “genocide” charge is a devilish attempt to drive a permanent wedge between the future generations of Sinhalese and Tamils.

    What this ******* and others of his ilk do not realise is Eelam or otherwise we have to share this island and there is a limit to the degree of hatred each side can harbor against the other.

    You get the diaspora and the international community to ***** the Sinhalese and the Sinhalese can damn well ***** the Tamils living in areas outside North and East.

    What are the motives of this man to write such a scurrilous indictment of a much admired judge of the Supreme Court who was among the few to stand up to the government of the time? There must be a reason. Perhaps he could tell us what the occasion for such an article when an election is impending? Has he been set up to do this, because the Judge is one of the few talking about genocde when the TNA has copped out on this and is getting very placatory? Only the exalted man from a PhD from the outposts of the empire in Wales could tell us. Is he an agent for someone else?

      Ponkoh,

      It is wrong to say that the TNA is placatory. It’s leadership is politically far more mature than CVW who unfortunately is new to politics. The current judgements of the TNA leadership are very realistic though may not be appealing to the emotional elements in the diaspora.

        People in the diaspora are not deadwood that they do not get emotional when Channel 4 reported yesterday that the Sinhalese government has got the UNHCR to dilute the report on the genocide of 70,000 Tamils. Obviously, TNA was in the know because it was for a domestic inquiry. TNA must answer for this, not to the diaspora but to the 70,000 civilians who were killed, their relatives and to the Tamil people of whom they are part. Sengodan, do not be a piece of deadwood.

    I agree with this writer. This CM has done absolutely nothing to empower the northerner. He has not initiated a single project nor made any attempt to uplift the economy of the NP.
    On his last trip to the US, they have in fact requested him to stop his genocidal talk and start working towards building the northern economy.
    The northerner has made a huge blunder in electing him, as everyone keeps saying he was a respected Judge but totally incapable of the job he was voted in for.

    The video clip inserted by Anpu above gives the true portrait of CVW and his beleifs and his administration, the pros & cons of the situation in the north, and the interaction between him and the central government.
    He emerges as a sincere person qualified to lead the NPC and solve the many political and social problems of tamils.
    The ‘Premananda affair’ may have many aspects unmentioned.
    CVW probably has adequate reasons for what has been mentioned by the writer. These should be bared, by interview with CVW.

    This most exalted doctor from Wales parading his other qualifications to give himself legitimacy has attacked three persons (Wigs, Swaminathan and a man called Karthikeyan ) with little ethical consideration. He does not tell the reader what the sexist innuendo of Wigs was so that the reader could judge whether it was wrong or not. It seems to be a statement made on hearsay. About Premananda, the “swamis’ a person chooses are entirely his business. We have heard many things said of more popular swamis, about them being paedophiles, womanisers, etc. But, this is a personal matter for each politician as long as he does not allow it to affect his politics.

    He met the Dali Lama, a Buddhist leader. He must have met many Christian and Muslim leaders. We do not know about this. This twisted knave isolates certain incidents to malign an individual. Why at this time? He is not even a candidate at the elections. Is it because he believes that genocide has been committed.

    But what is his grouse about Swaminathan and Karthigeyan? The great man with a sour, unsmiling, constipated face must be kind enough to tell us what his motives for writing this piece at this time.

    • 5

      When a “Swami” is CONVICTED of child sex, rape and murder it ceases to be a personal matter.

      There is absolutely no way a man who gives character/witness statement to such a Swami can hold Public Office. Especially since as a sitting Judge and CM he has communicated on the matter in an attempt to influence the case.

      If he has used sexually derogatory language against the former Chief Secretary it would be understandable for his supporters but totally unacceptable in a civilised society that respects women.

      Please tell us what sort of sexual innuendo is acceptable to be used against a Widow???

      His Sammandhi has the distinction of calling the Prime Minister a PAKAYA in Parliament. All par for the course for these guys.

      Dr. Sarvananthan’s article is absolutely spot-on and demands introspection. Blind support of unethical and immoral activities is a serious indictment on a society. I feel this is just the tip of the iceberg. He is a disaster waiting to unfold on the NP and Tamil people.

      It is for the person who asserts to prove the facts. Even if the facts are right (except the sexist comments) it does not make Wigs unfit to be CM. His religious leanings are his problem. The facts relating to sexist comments seem to be hearsay.

      There are so many scurrilous people out there like Douglas and others who have not received such condemnation. Why sings Wigs out?

      Wigs cannot reply simply because he cannot come down to the level of this imbecile with a PhD from Wales who parades his accomplishments. He must show humility and not throw stones under a title that refers to morality.

    There’s no doubt Wigneswaran is a wing-nut as every one of his pronouncements since he became CM shows. He gave the impression of being a rational guy while serving in the judiciary. Maybe holding a puny little political office has thrown him off balance. He’s suffering from the delusion that he’s is the king of a medieval sovereign state. Someone should knock some sense into his frozen head and make him desist from making racist, inflammatory, biased statements about the sociopolitical reality in Sri Lanka. He comes off as a religious fanatic, an ethical fundamentalist and a cultural fascist. In my view, he’s a kind of a throwback in the evolutionary path of Jaffna politics. He’s the biggest challenge faced by the Tamil people in their quest to find a just and lasting solution to their problems through reconciliation, accommodation and peaceful co-existence.

    It appears that politics has the power to turn even a saint into a scoundrel. Wigneswaran was very highly respected by tamils, Muslims and sinhalelse before he entered politics. His behaviour has become a disgrace to the tamils he is supposed to set an example to. What a shame!

    Dr. Muthu is right. Even if he is not, let him say what he wants to say without attacking him. Haven’t we Tamils killed enough of our intellectuals because they disagreed with the Leader? The label “traitor to the cause” was an easy label. Don’t use it again. Enocurage dissent. We haven’t had much of it in Tamil society. Tamil Thambi has to absolutely obey the parents. Parents have to absolutely obey the Peria Dorei or the Swami. The wife has to absolutely obey the husband. The pupil has to absolutely obey the teacher. Only the Thalivar is allowed to think!.

    Unfortunately, Wigneswaran has not come out with a new vision for the Tamils, although that was the only thing expected from him in the post-LTTE moment.
    He knows that he is not popular, and he is trying to win some cheap popularity by paying pooja to Prabhakaran and howling about Genocide. But in this he cuts a fool in India, in the US, and in Colombo.
    Only a few years ago he would have not have said any such thing, but enjoyed his life in Colombo, hob-nobbing with the very people that he accuses of genocide.
    .
    His sexism, and his outdated ulta-orthodox Hindusim are reminiscent of the Ramanathans who were lackeys of the British. In any case, Wigneswaran is a blood relative of those old leaders who kept the Tamils down, and ran Tamil society as it were their private kingdom. They have always been the leaders of the Tamils, and now back in power after Prabhakaran was eliminated. The Sinhalese have changed their leaders many times over. We have kept the same clan on top. We need leaders from a new source, coming from the grass-roots.

    When these people talked of Arasu or Eelam, what they meant was getting back full control of their property, with the poor Tamil people working for them as low-caste slaves. Sebastian Rasalingam and John Pulle are some of the few writers who have written about this clearly. The post-Vaddukkoddai Tamil youth kicked out the TULF because they knew what these Colombo Lawyers (absentee landlords) wanted. That is why they were kicked out. Unfortunately, the “boys” did not have any experience in democratic government and so they ended up in producing a reign of terror on the Tamils. Fortunately, that was put down in 2009.

    However, although we could have made a new beginning, the TNA (an erstwhile mouth piece of the LTTE) is back in power because all potential Tamil leaders had been killed by the LTTE. These TNA guys stayed in the safety of Colombo, and now, once again try to rule from Colombo.

    Dr. Muthu is right. In any country, leaders who go to venerate a rapist would be called upon to resign. If Wiggie is ousted, a better leader (perhaps some professional like an engineer, an agriculturist, banker or a businessmen) rather than a lawyer is what we should get. Lawyers know to talk and take your money. They have never produced anything except hot air. Ramanathans, Ponnambalams, Chelvanayagams, Thiruchelvams, Amirthalingams, Wigneswarans and Sumanthirans are all lawyers who grew up in Colombo and go to the North for their holidays, accompanied by their servants and nannies.

    Is The Chief Minister Of The NPC Ethically & Morally Fit To Govern.

    2076 hindu temples – damaged / destroyed in the … – TCHR
    http://www.tchr.net/religion_temples.htm
    Damage caused to Hindu Kovils (Temples) in the North-East of the Island of Sri Lanka. (Not all the Kovils damaged/destroyed are included in this list.

    *** First of all you havent revealed your Religious background which is highly Unprofessional.
    In Sri Lanka the fight is mostly based on Ethnicity and religion takes second place but at the forefront of Religious Attaks it is the Attcks by the Buddhists on Hindu Temples and just to give you a Scale of attacks the above is the statistics.

    Compared to the number of attacks on Hind Temples the attack on places of Worship of other Religious denomintions is miniscule.

    But notwithstanding these attacks there is a bigger picture which you have conveiniently forgotten.

    There are no Sinhalese Hindus.

    But the Sinhalese are both Buddhists and Christians with powerful men lie Dayan the Catholic Preacher. They havent taken up the issue.
    As for the Muslims during the attacks on Mosques Raful Kakeem was in bed with MR and Gotha.

    But you are singling out CM who happend to wear ” Viputhi” which I am sure has irritaed you. I am not sure whether you are Christian but who knows you might be a Muslim. But in any event you sound a Religious Biggot. Let me take you through.

    1) The Chief Minister of the Northern Province Mr. Canagasabapathy Viswalingam Wigneswaran made a “private visit” to India in November 2014. It was reported that he was invited to deliver a memorial lecture in Chennai to commemorate a civil liberties activist Mr. K.G. Kannapiran, who is a person from the legal fraternity. Later Mr. Wigneswaran also attended a World Congress of Buddhism and Hinduism in New Delhi which was graced by Dalai Lama, among others.

    *** The key word is ” Private Vist”. Which simply means that he went there to deliver a speach in his individual capacity and not as CM.
    He was invited by World Congress of Buddhists and Hindus. The question is why didnt the Muslim Council and Christians Organisations invite him. Were they RACISTS.

    2) At the World Congress of Buddhism and Hinduism Mr. Wigneswaran had complained to the Dalai Lama about attacks on and destruction of Hindu temples in Sri Lanka. It is true that, during the time of the previous Rajapaksa regime, places of worship of minority religions came under frequent attack by religious bigots who had the tacit patronage of the ruling coterie. As a matter of fact many more Churches and Mosques were attacked than Hindu temples; in this circumstance, the Chief Minster complaining about the attacks on Hindu temples only smacks of parochial partisanship.

    *** No you are Totaally and Utterly wrong and speaking like an Idiot. If what you are saying about the Number of Mosques and Churches is true back it up with figures. I have given you my figures. So dont talk rubbish.

    3) It was unbecoming of the Chief Minister of a multi-religious province to highlight the attacks on Hindu temples only to the Dalai Lama. The Chief Minister should be aware that the population of Christian faith comprises twenty percent and the population of Islamic faith three percent of the total population of the Northern Province according to the Census 2012.

    *** Get your act together man. He was not speaking as CM with no power to influence but only as an individual. Have you ever asked Dayan or Hakeem this Question No. Because you would have taken in a White Van and body Dumped.

    4) It was also reported that Mr. Wigneswaran had also paid two other visits in India which are ethically and morally reprehensible.

    *** You really are a Moron. Pakistani, Saudi , Malaysian officialls come to Sri Lanka and never raise the issue of Suffering and what right or AAuthority the CM has to intervene. These foreign dignatories had more clout and influence. Dont be a Hypocrite.

    5) WigneswaranOne was to an ashram of late Swami (sic) Premananda in Trichy in Tamilnadu. Premananda was born in Matale (Sri Lanka) but moved to Trichy (India) after the 1983 riots and set-up an ashram there. He was arrested by the police on charges of rape and murder of few female disciples within the ashram, convicted, and sentenced to life imprisonment in the 1990s. He died in prison on 21 February 2011.

    *** You are out of your mind. If a War Criminal like MR can go to Thirupathi what is wrong with CM going to the above places.

    6)It was disgraceful for the Chief Minister of the Northern Province, Mr. Wigneswaran, to pay respects to a rapist and murderer while violence against women (including rape) in his province is rampant, which Mr. Wigneswaran often blames on the security forces personnel. His visit to the ashram of a deceased criminal is an affront to women who outnumber men in his province and who had undergone immense suffering during the course of the long civil war. Even worse is the fact that, in April 2015 Mr. Wigneswaran had written to the Prime Minister of India pleading on behalf of the family members of the disciples of Premananda who are co-convicts in the rape and murder cases and serving life sentences in the prisons in Tamilnadu.

    *** You hold a PhD which counts for Nothing. You are struggling to seperate the Culprit( who has been punished ) from the place of Worship.
    As a Christian do you know how many Anglican Bishops have been found guilty of abusing young Boys. What you are saying is people should not visit these Churches.

    7) Mr. Wigneswaran is also infamous for frequent sexist gaffes (against women) in public. One such was against the former Chief Secretary of the Northern Province (top most civil servant at the provincial level), Mrs. Ramesh Wijeyaluckshmi (the first ever female Chief Secretary in the country and a widow). Whatever the political differences between the Chief Minister and the Chief Secretary, the insinuation of a sexual nature against the former Chief Secretary sometime in 2014 is an affront to women in general and the widows in particular.

    *** This is a bit rich coming from you. She was attacked for taking orders from a RAPIST and a THUG
    8) This author also learns that the Chief Minister Wigneswaran had met the head of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS – National Volunteer or Patriotic Organisation) in New Delhi in November 2014.

    *** I dont see anything wrong and for your information Modi is an RSS member.

    9) Furthermore, the Chief Minister (CM) of Northern Province (NP) appears to dodge meeting useful persons from overseas and within. It was reported that the Malaysian Special Envoy on Infrastructure to India and Southern Asia (with ministerial rank), Mr. Samy Vellu (former longest serving President of the Malaysian Indian Congress and the second longest serving minister in the country), visiting Sri Lanka in March 2015 wanted to meet the Chief Minister to explore investment opportunities in the NP, but the CM had not responded to the request for a meeting. The Chief Minister should be aware that Malaysians are one of the largest investors in Sri Lanka and the NP should proactively seek private or public Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) from Malaysia. Some members of the Northern Provincial Council also complained publicly last year that they are unable to meet the Chief Minister to talk about provincial matters.

    *** He was a High Court Judge he can pick and choose who he wants to meet unlike you.

    You are a disgrace to your profession distorting facts. All in all you are Anti Hindus and Wigneswaran Hater and you are not alone an you have Dr. R. Narendran who is a formidable Animal Docotor and you are like him Dr NO Little.

        Sengodan,

        I am a Christian and a Tamil nationalist who has a great amount of respect for Wigneswaran. I am appalled by your chauvinistic Hindu centric approach. You are a total and complete disgrace !
        I have seen your other spurious comments laced with unvarnished chauvinism that is as bad as that spewed by the likes of Jayatilleke , Rajapkasa and a host of Buddhist priests since the 1950’s .

        The Tamil cause is not a religious chauvinistic project but when this noble cause for justice and equality for an oppressed people is articulated by the narrow-minded, mean spirited, appalling, repulsive, repugnant and plainly nauseating people like you I feel like puking.

        Shame on you!

          LOL, the tamil struggle was a manufactured struggle by the land owning Tamil high caste politicans who controlled jaffna as their kingdom oppressing the lower caste tamils.
          That is what history tells us

          AKP,

          You have ‘a great amount of respect for Wigneswaran’ and yet you relish the rubbish written by Muttukrishna? With all that respect, why didn’t you think of critiquing this rubbish article?

            “Relish” in the English language means when you enjoy something
            How on earth did you get the impression that I relished M’s writing
            The comment was directed at you
            I am well aware of M’s politics and have no time wasting my time critiquing it

            You seem to be not only ignorant of being chauvinism but also English a language
            What a pity! People like you do a great disservice to the Tamil cause which extends beyond religion class and others that divide rather than unite people
            M is one of them your are another

    A good revelation.
    Apparently he suffers from a puerile notion that adoring and worshipping such frauds and murderers who are magicians could short circuit his aspirations to reach heaven. This killer Premananda had record for murder and a reputation for causing illegal abortions on women he impregnated. He had a partiality for European women who came to his “Ashram” supposedly for solace,whom he supposedly molested.Bensen

      Is there any evidence that CVW met Premananda who is in jail? His visit to his Ashram should not be confused as a visit to Premananda!
