Former TNA MP Suresh Premachandran condemned the comments made by MP Udaya Gammanpila on Northern Chief Minister C.V.Wigneswaran.

The Northern Provincial Council was not involved with Eluha Thamil demonstration organizers and no council vehicle had been used, said Suresh. He expressed the above when he participated in a news conference held in Jaffna yesterday (27th September 2016) .

Udaya Gammanpila participated in the paada yaathra which was Detrimental towards Tamils and we did nothing in that kind,  he added.

Udaya Gammanpila accused Wigneswaran of misusing his letterhead and deploying employees and vehicles of the Council in the demonstration held on Saturday in Jaffna, urging a federal solution to the national question among several other demands.
