Sajith is best for President - Vigneswaran

Former Northern Province Governor C.V. Vigneswaran said he is happy to see Minister Sajith Premadasa becoming the President of this country notwithstanding certain shortcomings on his part.

He said Sajith Premadasa is most outstanding when compared to all others who have come forward as Presidential candidates. He believed that Sajith Premadasa’s knowledge and learning and the political acumen inherited from his late father will enable him to ensure a sound administration. Vigneswaran expressed these sentiments speaking to the media in Jaffna.

Vigneswaran said Premadasa’s readiness to govern the country by taking over the Sinhala Buddhist mantle and assurance given to protect war heroes were some of the shortcomings he saw in him (Premadasa).

But he was happy because Sajith Premadasa had not been identified or seen as an anti-Tamil politician so far. Vigneswaran pointed out that Sinhala Buddhists comprised 75 percent of the country population while 85 percent of the population in the North and East comprised Tamils.

“This should be understood by Sajith Premadasa,” he said.

Vigneswaran said Sajith Premadasa could obtain the unstinted support of Tamils in the North and East if he arrived at a correct and timely decision and acted accordingly.

Vignewaran said Premadasa would fall into unnecessary trouble if he did not trust the TNA and acted according to the whims and fancies of its members.
