Vastavam web: A no confidence motion against Sri Lanka’s Northern Province Chief Minister C V Wigneswaran was handed over to Governor Reginald Cooray with the signatures of provincial council members, the Governor’s office said today.Some 22 out of 38 council members had signed the motion after friction resulted by Wigneswaran’s move to sack some ministers of his administration.A committee appointed by the chief minister last year submitted its report last week. It found evidence on the charges made against the two ministers.
Wigneswaran, a former top judge, had asked the two ministers in the four-member cabinet to resign so that allegations against them can be investigated.However, Wigneswaran has expressed dissatisfaction with the government’s delivery of reconciliation pledges. Cooray’s office said he may send a letter to Wigneswaran asking him to prove his majority in the house.
