( July 15, 2014, Jaffna, Sri Lanka Guardian) Responding to the recent news reports published by several Medias in Colombo, the Chief Minister of the Northern Province, Justice Canagasabapathy Visuvalingam Wigneswaran, says that he never said anything about resigning at any stage while revealing the agenda behind those reports.

“I have never said anything about resigning at any stage. The Government probably expects me to resign for their own reasons. It had been flashed across the world by interested parties that I wanted to resign. I have never wanted this position and even now am not interested. But no amount of reversals in any form would make me run away from my duty bound position”, Justice C. V. Wigneswaran said.

“My clients are the people of the Northern Province. Their spokesperson has been TNA. Unless they want my exit no Government or other interested parties are going to tell me when I am to leave,” he added.

Here is the full text of the response that he given in a recent communique with Nilantha Ilangamuwa, editor of Sri Lanka Guardian.

“I have never said anything about resigning at any stage. The Government probably expects me to resign for their own reasons. It had been flashed across the world by interested parties that I wanted to resign. I have never wanted this position and even now am not interested. But no amount of reversals in any form would make me run away from my duty bound position.

“I have earlier said this and may I repeat it here. I am more or less like a lawyer who has undertaken a case for his client. My clients are the people of the Northern Province. Their spokesperson has been TNA. Unless they want my exit no Government or other interested parties are going to tell me when I am to leave. I shall serve my clients to the best of my ability. The fact that others are prompting on my behalf reflecting their thoughts and not mine, shows that I am doing well in my capacity as Chief Minister!
