Justice C.V.Wigneswaran

Chief Minister

Northern Provincial  Council



Dear Sir,

We refer to the numerous challenges issued  by you to the Sinhalese urging them to debate with you on various historical and political matters related to  the North-South conflict.

The latest is the  letter sent by you Mr. Gallage Puynwardana, President of Sinhale Secretariat with heading ” Vultures hover to devour Tamil ancestral lands” . In this letter dated 8/.6/18 you raise five points.

Mr. H. L. D. Mahindapala, the  most senior journalist in Sri Lanka, and also the former President of the Sri Lanka Journalists’ Association and the Secretary-General of  the South Asia Media Association,

has accepted your challenge and requested you to debate with him the listed issues in the letter sent by you to Mr. Punyawardana.

We sincerely hope that you would kindly accept the invitation and debate the issues with Mr. Mahindapala for the public to  gain a broader and an  in-depth view of the  controversial issues.

You would no  doubt agree that such a public debate would also contribute considerably for the good of peace and reconciliation.

If you agree we will be  glad to act as convenor of this debate and provide as much logistics as possible for its success.

As things stand now we think that it  is preferable to  have the debate in December in a venue in Colombo.

If you agree please contact us to work out  the details.

Your assistance in  this will be much appreciated.

Wishing you all the best

Yours sincerely


Ranjith Soysa
