Still angered by Northern Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran‘s decision to take oaths before President Mahinda Rajapaksa earlier this week, Northern Province residents burned effigies of moderate TNA politicians including Leader R. Sampanthan, Colombo Telegraph learns.
Residents in Mullaitivu district burnt images of chief minister Wigneswaran and TNA national list MP M.A. Sumanthiran reports from the area said.
The reports come amidst strong statements from the EPRLF and Ananthi Sasitharan that they nay boycott tomorrow’s oath taking ceremony before the Northern Chief Minister.
The Suresh Premachandran led EPRLF is unhappy over the TNA’s decision about the provincial ministerial board.
Sasitharan who is the wife of former LTTE political wing leader of Trincomalee Elian is disillusioned with Wigneswaran’s decision to be sworn in before the president who was roundly condemned during thwarted TNA’s polls campaign.
