Wigneswaran Announces Formation Of His New Political Party TMK

Northern Province Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran, the first Chief Minister of the province, today announced the formation of Tamil Makkal Kootani (TMK), a new political party led by him.

C.V. Wigneswaran

Wigneswaran, in a statement to media today, said his new party would uphold the “fundamentals of Tamil nationalism”.

The new political party is expected to adopt a harder line than the TNA when it comes to matters related to devolution of power and post-war accountability.

The announcement marks Wigneswaran’s official breakaway from the Tamil National Alliance, the party he represented since the last Provincial Council election, in 2013.
Wigneswaran announced the formation of his new party after the official term of the Northern Provincial Council expired.

Meanwhile, addressing a public meeting in Mullaitivu this week, TNA Parliamentarian Mavai Senadhirajah said fielding Wigneswaran as the Chief Ministerial candidate of the TNA in 2013 was a “foolish decision.”

      I don’t think/remember Vigneshwaran ever wishing to bomb the parliament and carpet bomb innocent people nor did he want to boycott google, yahoo, KFC, ……… nor did he say Indian national anthem was in Hindi, nor was FCID investigated him nor did he obtain more than one passport, …

      By the way do you know any Australians pursuing Vignashwaran for deal that went bad?

      Yes, but Wimal WEERAWANSE and UDAYA Gonthadipila will have to end up their journay in the weeks to come ONCE there court investgations for nurmerous allegations are focused.
      I have never seen a guys of that Udaya Gonthadiplia nature. He does not know what he is droping down from his cesspit ; remember the day Mr Medamulana hinted that one of his brother would well be appropriate to be the contender to next presidential electoin. Immediately this was made by MR to Indian press, Udaya Gonthadipila confirmed as the one of the SPOKESMEN of the most vicious outfit -JOINT OPPOSITION, that they all waited until their leader cat is out of the bag regarding their common candidate. Unfortunately, for his immediately their god father returned home, fully refused saying that he never meant GOTABAYA his younger brother known as the highly aggressive person among the Rajapkashe siblings ( master mind of whitevanning that took the lives of unknown numbers inthe country under his brothers authoritarian rule).
      So in civilized environments, Udaya Gonthadipila should make a public apology to have misled the people. He doens tkno what really for what the bugger is accoutable for. That is like GONAGE wade buruwa karanawa waage.. gonthadipila reacts with JO politics these days. I wish these men to be PUNISHED by all mighty god before long. So that we can feel, the nation is no longer misled.

      Good or bad Wigneswaran stands for something trying to uphold the rights of Tamils for the betterment as he sees it. What does Wimal and Udaya stand for other than carrying water for the Rajapaksa’s?

        And how do you define a Tamil?

        Also, all all Tamils equal? Aren’t there those who are in the “navy”, and those who are in the “air force”, be side those who own land and claim to be Vellara?

        How can the Tamils claim to have any “fundamental” or exclusive rights in the North that others don’t have?

        In fact, if you read Captain Percival’s account of Jaffna in the years 1800-1820 you see that the Moors were the majority, while the Malabars (Tamils) and Sinhalese were roughly equal and formed the second group. The Malabars were the Tamils from from the Malabar coast to work as slave labour in the the Tobacco plantations.

        And the Tamils drove out the Moors (Muslims) at gunpoint dueing the time of the LTTE terrorists. This act of ethnic cleansing has not been punished, and the Muslims have not yet been given their land and property which are theirs by right.

        Viggy was aJudge, but he has no idea what justice is. Having been

          Go and tell these lies and fairy tales to other idiots like you and they may believe. Sri Lankan Muslims are not descended from Moors. Moors are from North Africa Morocco and the ancestors of the Sri Lankan Muslims never arrived from there but from South India. They are descended from South Indian Tamil Hindu Dravidian converts to Islam , largely from the low and untouchable castes who converted to Islam to escape the Hindu caste system . A few hundred families may have a distant Arab male ancestor but this still does not make them Arab or Moor but Dravidian low caste Tamils who converted to Islam with a dash of Arab. To hide this lowly low caste Tamil origin and for political advantage they have jumped onto the incorrect identity that the Portuguese gave them “Moor” and now claim all sorts of fake and imagined origins other than their real low caste immigrant South Indian Tamil origin. The Portuguese called all South Asian Muslims irrespective of their ethnicity ” Moors ” and this only denoted to their religion and not to their origin or ethnicity. It was used very derogatively as they Portuguese hated the Moors who ruled the Iberian peninsular for around 1000 years. 99% of the Tamil low castes imported by the Portuguese and Dutch became Sinhalese . Stop lying .

          contd: Jaffna was called a Tamil kingdom because it was populated by Hindu Tamils . There were hardly any South Indian origin Tamil Muslim low castes or any Sinhalese. The LTTE chased away 60000 Muslims from the north for spying for the Sinhalese army . 99% of them were dirt poor and never owned any lands. However the Sinhalese and the Muslims killed more than 300000 Tamils and chased over 1 million Tamils . You are very silent about this. Go and read the atrocities committed by the Muslim home guards on the Tamil Hindu population in the east and the destruction of many Hindu temples in their hands. Most probably you know about this already. Genuinely displaced northern Muslims should be allowed to return to their homes in the north , if they want to. Most of them do not but not fake ones , originating from places like Kurenegala and other parts of the south , who have never lived in the north , now claiming to be displaced northern Muslims , wanting to be settled there in order to create new Muslim majority enclaves in the north , that never existed. 60000 were chased out and most of them do not want to return but from somewhere 200000 now claim to be displaced northern Muslims. Humanly impossible even if they bred like rats in the past 30 years. What about the more than 100000 Tamils who were chased out of their lands in the east by the Muslim Home guards and Sinhalese colonists? When are their lands going to be returned and they allowed to settle ?

            SSS, Where did you get the number 300K (killed). Note, the Sri Lankan Tamil population was: 733k in 1946; 884k in 1953; 1100k in 1963; 1400k in 1971; 1880k in 1981 and 2300k in 2012. These figures are from Sri Lankan census. Based on these statistics the Sri Lankan Tamil population increased at a steady growth of approximately 150-250K every ten years and 500k exodus to foreign countries in 1983 onwards, 2012 census indicates 2300K instead of 2100K. Yes, there were number of Tamils killed during the war, but your figure is a far exaggeration.

            Tamils killed 230,000 Muslims and 270,000 Sinhala villagers and added to 300,000 Tamils killed by Sinhalese the total becomes 800,000 total. Still less than a million.

    As long as the majority of community fail to recognize the minority rights new Tamil parties will come and go. Provincial councils came over 40 years and thousands of dead bodies. It appears that many more sacrifices will have to be made to balance the situation we are in. Solution is seen in Buddha’s eight fold path which we have failed to follow.Can we call ourselves a Buddhist country?

      The minority community also must recognize the rights of the majority community.
      Every Tamil in Jaffna who makes it rich moves to Colombo, and if he gets even m and ore rich, he goes off and settles down in
      Sinapore, Canada, USA, Europe or Australia which has become wary of tamils. When they are in Cnada, they haven’t still asked to have the Canadian National Anthem sung in Tamil. The problem is, the Hispanics (17-20% of the US population) haven’t asked for the the US anthem to be sung in Spanish, and the Jews (more Jews in USA thanTamils in Sri lanka) haven’t asked the US anthem to be sung in Yiddish.
      But in Sri Lanka, even Air Lanaka is forced to utetr everything in three languages. The government business costs three times as much bercause of petty language politics.
      How ever, these very tamils have no problem operating even in Polish when they get their.

        The Tamils in India and Sri Lanka are different from the Tamils in other parts of the world. The Tamils are a minority in India but a majority in the Tamil speaking Territory of India. Similarly, Tamils are a minority in Sri Lanka but a majority in the Tamil speaking Territory of Sri Lanka. In Singapore, Malaysia, Canada, USA, Europe, Australia and other countries the Tamils neither had a kingdom nor have a separate Tamil speaking territory.

        The Sri Lankan Tamils are not just a minority but a minority with a separate territory or a territorial majority (a minority having a separate territory in which they are a majority). They had a clearly defined (Tamil speaking) territory, their historic habitat (formally Jaffna kingdom) in the North & East of Sri Lanka as their traditional homeland where they lived for several centuries as a separate nation with their own language, religion and culture until the British united the Tamil speaking North to the Sinhala speaking South in 1833 for their convenience in administration thereby reducing the Tamils to a minority and then left in 1948 without reverting back to the old federal setup that was existing.

      Can you point out which party is non-racist. Both UNP and SLFP have committed racist acts such as racial discrimination and violence directed against Tamils. Leftist parties were non racist until 1963 and subsequently for power abandoned it and embraced racism. Other sundry Sinhala parties are off shoots of either UNP or SLFP and have a racist agenda.

        There’re individuals in any community with racist attitudes & are easily be misled to act in anti-social manner as we witnessed especially in 83, where the leadership completely failed to contain the racial block in the UNP that went on rampage against minority Tamils.

    Why the Tamil ultra-nationalists like Wigneswaran, Ponambalam, Ananthy and so on wants to have their own political parties? Why cannot they join together as one Tamil ultra-nationalist party so that the people can decide between Tamil moderates and Tamil ultra-nationalists?

      “Why cannot they join together as one Tamil ultra-nationalist party so that the people can decide between Tamil moderates and Tamil ultra-nationalists?”

      They can’t stand each other.
      They do not know what they want.
      They do not know who the common enemy is.
      They do not know how to deal with their common enemy.

        During his tenure as the Chief Minister of NPC, can anybody tell me one good thing (development or future plan or autonomy or anything) that Wigneswaran did or achieved in the North? Northern Province has become a hell hole after Wigneswaran took over as CM. The people of Jaffna do not need these Ultra-nationalists, they need visionary leaders who can plan to develop the Northern Province.

    Since the formation of ITAK alias Federal Party by Selvanayakam, Tamils have become loosers in every field. Finally having accepted his failure and out of frustration Selvanayakam asked god to save Tamils. The government then reacted to this call by dropping bombs on Kovil and churches. Now god and rich devotees have fled the country leaving a large number of destitutes at the mercy of TNA rouges.

    Tamils hope and pray that the new party will choose a different path and bring relief to Tamils and other communities.

        “He was a good judge who failed to become a leader with good judgement.
        As one acquainted I hold a different view.
        The TNA for purposes of it’s own managed to persuade him to join knowing the mind of the Tamil community.
        It was purely an election tactic to gain popularity for the TULF and relegate other Tamil political aspirants to unimportance.
        The ex-judge is certainly not a consummate politician but he had a mind of his own and as an honest person was unnameable to being taken advantage of or get pushed around due to his sincerity about the plight of the Tamils which he may not have been been sensitive of till he realised the enormity till he bacame CM of the NPC.
        That certainly was a problem for the TULF.
        The causes for the dissensions in TNA is same.
        But what the ex- judge is going achieve for the Tamils in his new avatar following the divorce with the TULF certainly is something to consider.

    SriLankan Tamils do not need any outsider for their downfall . They are smart enough to do that them selves. They always keep working hard in out manoeuvring their own community. ( regardless of where they are) To this add apathy,jealousy and arrogance and you have the perfect prescription for failure. If 30 years of struggle, human loss, destruction, displacement and grief is not enough to make a change then there is nothing else can. As I had mentioned else where I do not have any empathy for Lankans. They deserve what they ask for. In India they have thousands of factions with infighting but a stupid reason like Jalli Kattu is good enough for people to come together in voicing their resistance. Same is the case with Telangana , Kannadigas, Mallus, Marathis and others. If it is a national issue (Pakistan) then all states will get together with in movements. Our retards are only good in making fun of others without realizing their stupidity.

    Vigneswaran, a surrogate of LTTE was kicked out of TNA hence he is forming this party for his own survival. If he is so interested in his Tamil Culture, why is he associating with his children who are married to Sinhalese? Do not get me wrong I am not a racist, but I have to show the double sidedness of this idiot. Have the Tamils in the north suffered enough due to LTTE, now this idiot is trying to make them suffer more by resurrecting LTTE? We all know Mahinda Rajapakse paid Prabaharan, I wonder how much Vigneswaran got from Mahinda?

    These retired Judges and Solicitors have some sort of mental stigma. They think they deserve respectful position and status within the society by default. CM Wigneswaren is a typical example. Another one is London reject solicitor Mr Rengan. As soon he returned to Jaffna he formed a splinter Bar Association in Jaffna. I do not know what append to that organisation. Likewise Wig will last for just 6 months after he left the office. Better he find a good Archramam and retire in India.

      What you have said about Wiggie is absolutely correct. There are nice Archramams where he can take Mary also and “serve” the people. Rangan (who returned from London) is a person who really wants to serve the people who were badly affected by the war without any expectations. There are people who crave for power,perks etc. etc. But Rangan is not that type.A very simple man who doesn’t even have a bicycle to go to the court.

    I had worked in one of the department and one of the special project under economic development ministry in Northern Province from 2009-2012 prior to first northern provincial Council elected and functioned … during that period northern provincial departments functioned under direction of then governer Chandrasri… He had done a tremendous job … all departments were under control and did significant development projects and shown good progress…,,
    But After Northern Provincial Council elected , all the development projects became standstill…. Its all bcoz of Wigneswaran… he should have focused on Northern development rather than National issues.. bcoz to solve issues we have parliament … at Provincial council level , we can do development only… instead of it , he focused some other things which were unrelavnt and unproductive…

    I feel ashamed of Wigneswaran and of course us … we were the one elected him unknowingly though we knew he was hidden till the civil war end in Colombo.. obviously he had no idea what Tamil people want after the war end and will never know ( he may know what Tamil diaspora want … yeah should be )

    What I feel the best action to be taken by Colombo is solve the national question immediately. The diaspora will be very angry with Colombo for many reasons – The Nanthikadal episode, having to migrate to far and distant and unfamiliar lands and start life from scratch, leave their motherland as refugees, getting absorbed into a new alien culture and losing their identity. Hence, the diaspora for right or wrong reasons will support any organisation or politician who will trek the nationalist agenda. So, Colombo must solve the tamil peoples problems and win over the moderates and the community at large.

        Could you explain to us what exactly you meant by self-serving.

        The dictionary meaning is

        -If you describe someone as self-serving, you are critical of them because they are only interested in what they can get for themselves.

        – habitually seeking one’s own advantage, esp at the expense of others

    The so called ethnic problem started because S. J. V. Chelvanaykam, the political father of Prabhakaran, went from kachcheri to kachcheri urging the Tamil public servants not to learn Sinhala.
    Demalu (Hindu and Muslim) are illegal immigrants to Sinhale. They should have learnt the language of the country they decided to live. When Demalu move to UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand they learn English. No fuss!. When they move to France, they learn French. When they move to Germany, they learn German. When they move to Italy, they learn Italian. But in Sinhale, they were not allowed to learn Sinhala by opportunistic elite politicians for their survival. There is a school in the North established by a Buddhist monk for low caste Demalu. They requested a teacher to teach Sinhala but NPC refused to give. This is the problem. As long as these rotten racist elite politicians are there, the problem will drag on. Low caste Demalu should rise against these elite opportunistic politicians and dump them in the Indian ocean if they want to live in peace in this country.

      Now now, we are all Sri Lankans so Sinhalese should learn Tamil and Tamils should learn Sinhalese. Unlike Sri Lankans moving to France and studying French, In Sri Lanka its their own mother land so they speak Tamil. That does not mean they should not learn Sinhalese. Similarly since 1/3 of SL population speak Tamil, Sinhalese also should learn Tamil.

    It is beyond belief that the Tamils can be so naïve and lacks intellectuality. Hanging on to “SJVism’ can only bring destruction and more suffering to the livings in the Island. The diaspora Tamils who are propping these puppets like CV or GP need to take a hard look at their ideals and erase the fanatic from their mindset. The Tamils living in Sri Lanka does not want a bar of the concoct ideals.

    1.TNA is a became a puppet of indian south block
    2.Tamils doesn’t have an alternative leadership now
    3.The ongoing political agenda of sri lankan government is on full scale now (militarisation , Sinhalisaton of border villages , and archeological manipulation of traditional tamil homland , creating gangs and violences in the tamil areas with the help of Military/police, Restricting autonomy of tamils in their home land etc)
    4.There is proverb ”Keerai kadaikkum ethir kaddai veenum”(Even a small shop need another shop to compete the business)-Rise of Wigneswaran with the alignment of other para plotical parties will stabilise the political power of tamils for sure
    5.(watching commentators here for a while -most of them are regular guys fight each other for nothing fruitful, that’s the reason i try my best to avoid commenting here)

      Al right, now tell us what the stupid Tamils should do to free TNA from Hindian South Block, find alternative leadership, stop militarisation , Sinhalisaton of border villages , and archeological manipulation of traditional tamil homland , creating gangs, ……………………………… .

      Are you the Australian right hand man of Chief Minister?

      Didn’t the South Block parachuted Justice C.V.Wigneswaran from Colombo into North in the first place.

    History has a dirty habit of repeating itself! SJV left the ACTC led by GGP almost 70 years ago and formed the Federal Party. SWRD was the catalyst to launch the FP to occupy centre stage of Tamil Politics with the Sinhala Only Bill; The EX:Chief Minister of the NPC has several catalysts to launch his new Party; Can he do it? Your guess is good as mine!

    Now srilanka is coming to a stage to take decision we need a strong party to face slfp of Mahinda, they are Hitlers , most powerful and authontorian governments ,they have the entire business class in their hands ,they closer 6 million block votes as a single party, they have media, they have powerful government mechanism even they are in opposition 80 % of middle class and upper middle class are die heart supporters of them for their business oriented capitalism economic policy and the huge economy and high standard rich life style of middle class which was architected by slfp after 2005. Because of this business class and upper middle-class and middle class they winning the electrotes like kaduwela ,kesbawa ,Homagama ,jaela by 50000 majority of votes. So there is no way to defeat the mahindas slfp and their business class since the party like unp the people like Jr or premadsa does not have any manage ment skills and showed by their performans in past by not been able to uplift the srilankan economy at least up to 15 billion USD. Unp does not any thing about this huge 80 billion economy which was architected by slfp after 2005. So how the anti Mahinda parties going to face the dictorial Hitler type party like slfp of Mahinda, we has to face the reality the small party powerless pathola party like unp which has only 23% vote base and lead by the small leaders like Jr or premadasa can face the party party of Hitlers the slfp of Mahinda. Impossible , to face the power Hitlers party like slfp unp is too small and innocent so we need a another strong party atleast to face the tough rule of slfp that is JVP .

    We only need 2-3 parties nationally for the purpose of empowering people of SriLanka in a democratic basis. We could explore one party system for another 20 years too until we get our of this rot as the current scenario is not sustainable.
    Equally we could change the system as follows- No Presidential slot, PM/MP’s (much reduced in numbers than what we have but with basic public service records as a minimum)/Few functioning Ministries manned by very qualified technocrats, No LG at district levels but very functioning Municipalities with no elections for another 10+ years until the services are streamlined and a good foundation layer throughout the country, Compulsory armed service for all, No parties with race/religion/language names, None of the religion have anything do with state and all 3 language based education. Infact the Constitutional assembly scope should be redefined/redirected towards delivering the above. Sooner we do this the quicker we can get back to the real scope the Nation Building. Infact we should bring the same draconian measures like in Malaysia that you ever open your mouth on racial issues you will disappear without trial and behind bars.
    Lessons learned never allow foreign involvement in National issues as North and Southern youth have brought foreign boots on the grounds is a real National shame .
    This is the only solution that will deliver Chief Ministers wish list most of which I agree are urgent indeed specially the people behind bars without any evidence/trials etc. With his approach he is going to compound all the issues just as all his predecessors did for the past 70 years beyond human comprehension and will contribute to normalising the unthinkable…..created a Tamil cause non deliverable in theory and in concept and took the entire Nation down with them just as the JVP did down south earlier. Now we have a second Indian Consulate in Jaffna and the CM connects to foreign countries bypassing the Head of State too.

    Wigneswaran is starting this political party after taking “santhosam” from Mahinda Rajapakse, same way Mahinda gave “santhosam” to Prabaharan. This is done by Wigneswaran so that he can split the Tamil votes during the next Presidential election to make Rajapakse nominee to become the President.

    I kindly ask the CM to reevaluate the direction he is leading the people or rather the small amount of people who in fact will be voting for these events and we will be treating this as a mandate to further grave the situation please. Any further aggratvation can only be possible if the entire diaspora and their children can be at the front lines as it was not the case last time around……We have already lost my generation of children up north including the armed forces and innocent public at large too through out the country. All of them had dreams too for better life.

    The discussions need behind the door diplomacy if that is what we want for our children and not so much public dirty washing. And most importantly this requires fresh faces and not the same old please.

    I have never disputed the problems we all had but only the solution offered each time by respective parties from North to South. If we learned anything as a Nation please appreciate two wrongs never make anything right and let us set example through our tolerance and humility too please. We will find the desired outcome are much more easier this way too. thank you.

    Kindly publish a graph showing number of people died due to violence (whatever form this was) against time please since 1948. We can all see clearly the cause and effects and is not a sustainable nature.

    Let us invest our energy finding reasons why we should forgive each other and not other way around. Nation building requires lot of give and take and let us educate our children to just that.
