There is no language called Sinhala - Wigneswaran

Northern Province Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran had made a comment to a newspaper in Jaffna on September 14 that there was no language known as Sinhala and it was coined together using the Tamil language and several other languages.

He had further stated to this newspaper that the leader of the Tamil National People’s Front Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam is not a politician but a terrorist.

It is reported that Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam had later confronted Wigneswaran and scolded him over his statement.
