Wigneswaran says the 13th Amendment to the constitution has its shortcomings but yet it cannot be changed without consulting India.Wigneswaran said that the 13th Amendment came about as a solution to address issues faced by Tamils. He also said that Tamils in Sri Lanka do have issues and it is “shocking” if the Sinhalese majority are not aware of that.Wigneswaran is also confident that the Tamils in the North will vote for the TNA at the election and not fall prey to the false assurances given by the government. (Colombo Gazette) He said that the Tamils had put forward several proposals for the Indo-Lanka accord but everything was not accepted and so the 13th Amendment, in his view, has some shortcomings. “This is an international agreement. This came about following an agreement between India and Sri Lanka. But if it is going to be changed then India must be consulted,” he said.
