Federalism is a must for north - Vigneswaran

North chief minister C.V. Vigneswaran insists that a federal solution is a must if problems in his province are to be resolved.

He is quoted by ‘Irida Lankadeepa’a as saying that it is unfortunate the government is yet to properly respond to his overtures in this
regard on several occasions, aggravating the situation.

Vigneswaran also says the proposed new constitution should merge the north and the east and should devolve powers.

Instead of unitary, the country should be united, he stresses, adding that that will solve most of the north’s problems.
