Tamil Terrorists of Sri Lanka were a group apart, who had not accepted Sri Lanka as their motherland. They had also not accepted that they belonged to the larger Community of Sri Lankan people. They wanted therefore to break away to form their own Tamil fatherland, exclusively for the Tamils.
From about 2001 TNA were the spokesmen for the terrorists, and had no interest in Sri Lanka other than to break it up to realise posthumously their leader –the terrorist Prabhakaran’s dream of a separate Tamil Eelam State.
Even today TNA would go all the way to India, Canada or any other distant place, to discuss the rights of the Tamil people of Sri Lanka, overlooking more appropriate persons to consult such as the President of Sri Lanka, and his government. The Sinhala people are distasteful to TNA. TNA remains a part of the terrorist outfit-its rump. When they say they do not want to participate in the CHOGM one sees how disconnected they are from reality.
TNA are not acting as Sri Lankans, but more like the Tamil Nadu supporters of Jayalalitha. Their place is in Tamil Nadu and certainly not in Sri Lanka, perhaps their agenda is to finally join up with TamilNadu to make a larger Tamil Eelam.
Now after the elimination of the Tamil terrorists we find that not only were the Tamil terrorists of Sri Lanka, but all Tamils in Sri Lanka think as the eliminated terrorists. They want a separate Tamil Fatherland exclusively for the Tamils, and they do not seek to have any affinity with the rest of the non-Tamil population of Sri Lanka. Reconciliation is a meaningless word for them.
This became more apparent when the TNA Candidates won the PC elections in the North and formed the North PC with Vigneswaran as the Chief Minister.
Vigneswaran a Tamil from Colombo is a retired Judge. A judge is appointed from among the lawyers. He is not necessarily an intellectual nor an exceptionally intelligent person. Vigneswaran represents the Tamils living outside the North and East.
One expected that the Tamils coming from the South, think differently from the Tamils in the North or East and are more tolerant, learned and not down right hardcore Tamils with a leaning towards the Tamil terrorist way of thinking.
Vigneswaran was a Judge by profession, but his mentality is similar to that of the uneducated criminal terrorist Prabhakaran. Vigneswaran speaks the same language of his hero Prabhakaran, whom he equates to Keppetipola Mahadisawa, showing his utter lack of the knowledge of the history of Sri Lanka.
He said in his maiden speech as the Chief Minister of NPC, “We must try to diffuse our anger by learning how a single man called Kepitipola Disawe brought about anger in the midst of the Britishers and enthusiasm in the midst of the present day Sinhalese. War and competitions are those factors that would be working against us, but mutual understanding would bring about unity in our midst.”
With such foolish pronouncements Vigneswaran has kicked reconciliation on the “back”. No reconciliation is possible with a man like Vigneshwaran as the Chief Minister of NPC, he simply does not want it, and UNHRC Pillay should take note.
The myth the educated Tamils in Colombo and elsewhere in the South are different to those in Jaffna was busted when the Chief Minister of the North PC made his maiden speech . Vigneswaran enjoyed the peace, all the liberties, respect and opportunities the South provided for him; but the ungrateful man he is, he has turned out to be a Tamil politician like Sampanthan and the rest admiring and hero worshipping the Tamil terrorists, aspiring to do differently what his Talaivar Prabhakaran wanted to do through terrorism-to carve out a separate territory to the Tamils.
In his Maiden speech as the Chief Minister he talks as if he were the anointed King of the North. His maiden speech as CM of NPC was not in keeping with what is expected of a Chief Minister. He cannot be any different from the eight other Chief Minsters of Sri Lanka, and claim additional rights and privileges.
He says he does not condone the presence of the Army in the North for the reason of such presence based on National Security. He does not want the Army to acquire land and says the land should be returned to the rightful owners and “ mechanisms must be in place to ensure that it happens.”
He has also said , “……..that it was wrong to act without understanding the language, culture and civilization of the Tamil community while he added that police had become an obstacle to the people of the North in their daily affairs. He added that it would therefore be wise to recruit people of the North to the police force in the area.”
Vigneswaran as the CM of the NPC should carry out the duties allocated to his Office, without giving instructions to the government as to what it has to do for the Northern Provincial Council.
When he said that, “Our people will not work in a way which makes it necessary for the army to remain in full strength in the North," , he seems to have really lost his “ mental balance” . He is not wise, forward looking, and human. He demonstrated that he is not the man through whom peace, happiness, and progress would come to the people of the North. He does no seem to know that peace and prosperity will come to north only in uniting forces with the rest of the country.
Vigneswaran is certainly out of place in the North as Chief Minister. He does not speak as a wise man, a retired Judge at the ripe age of Seventy, but as a man in his dotage, who loved the terrorist leader who without even a proper education built a great terrorist fighting force. He now wants to take up the reins to realize his hero’s dream in a more acceptable way as an educated person and a retired judge.
Vigneswaran has become a sleepwalker. His main preoccupation is the Army. He does not want the Army in the North. Poor man is amnesic. He has forgotten that it is after all the Army that brought peace to the people of the North who gave him an “ over whelming” support. He seems to have forgotten that his making the Maiden Speech as the Chief Minister of the Provincial Council of the North after a democratic election, was made possible by none other than the Armed Forces of Sri Lanka that he now wants to send away.
Vigneswartan is no better than his political leaders the Sampanthan and the click, he says in his maiden speech not of things that he proposes to do for the upliftment of the living conditions of the people , how he proposes to make the North prosperous, and the people happy, but he speaks of separation, removing the Army, and changing the Governor.

He goes a bit too far in saying that the Governor of the Northern Province should be removed. He added, “If the President is really interested in a civil administration, we urge him to appoint a person, not a military person, but a civilian as the Governor. I wish to inform that the Northern Province people expects a Governor who has experience in the post conflict period, who has the experience in rehabilitation, reconstruction, resettlement, development and a person who has the interest in the affairs and welfare of women, children, elders, youths and in the former armed cadres.” (emphasis mine)
What an ignorant man ?
What does Vigneshwaran who praises Prabhakaran comparing him to Keppetipola Dissawa, know about Major General G.A.Chandrasiri ?
The people of the North if they have any sense of gratitude and knows at what cost the peace that they enjoy today has been brought to them, should consider it a great privilege to have Major General G.A.Chandrasiri as their governor. He is the symbol of peace that is now prevailing in the North, which Vigneswaran, Sampanthan and his TNA cohorts are trying to upset and create disorder.
Major General Chandrasiri as the Governor in the North is not representing the Army, but he is a retired civilian appointed to the office of Governor by the President of Sri Lanka, as much as Vigneswaran does not represent the Judiciary, but a retired civilian appointed the Chief Minister of the NPC by the Governor G.A.Chandrasiri following the PC elections in the North.
Major General G.A.Chandrasiri is however a National war hero. He had a brilliant past before his retirement. Vigneswaran was only a Judge, listening to cases in a clean and neat courtroom, and living a comfortable life in Colombo, in peace and security. Nevertheless Vigneswaran cannot hold a candle to Major General Chandrasiri who in his military service was risking his life to keep people like Vigneswaran safe and in comfort.
|Major General G.A.Chandrasiri the Security Forces Commander in Jaffna with Robert O'Blake and Richard Boucher Ambassador UK|
Major General G.A.Chandrasiri was the Commander of the Security forces in Jaffna. He joined the army in 1974 when he was only 20 years of age. He was the Brigade Commander Armoured Brigade and Commander of the Area Head Quarters in Mannar. As the Commander of the Security forces in Jaffna he resisted several attacks against Jaffna by the terrorists. Later after a successful offensive he pushed the terrorists out of Jaffna, and recaptured Elephant Pass. After elimination of the terrorists he was the Competent Authority for approximately 3,000,000 internally displaced personnel and was in charge of the resettlement process. He retired from the Army in 2009 and was appointed the Governor of Northern Province.
What better man is there to be the Governor of Northern Province other than the retired Major General G.A.Chandrasiri. He is better than a civil administrator could ever be. He saved Jaffna from being mutilated by the Tamil terrorists, and helped in the resettlement of the IDPs. He risked his life to save the Jaffna Peninsular. Not only the Tamils in the North, but also the present Chief Minister of the NPC should be grateful to G.A.Chandrasiri and be proud to have him as the Governor.
The retired Major General G.A.Chandrasiri has a greater right to be the Governor of the Northern Province , than the retired judge Vigneswaran to be the Chief Minister. Perhaps Anandasangaree would have been a better choice.
Vigneswaran came from Colombo, lived, studied, and worked in Colombo. He was invited by the former spokesmen for the terrorists the TNA , who are not patriots of Sri Lanka , who never risked their lives to keep the North secure and out of danger from the terrorists, to be their CM Candidate for the North Provincial Council elections.
The Tamil people of the North perhaps voted for him as they thought he is different from the unclean TNA politicians, (who may have frightened them as they have faces that made them fearful), and hoped that Vigneswaran will be more respectable and create for them a gentle and a peaceful political environment than the egoist TNA the shadow of the terrorists.He Hh H/hHHh
