The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) yesterday said it would never support moves for a federal solution.

Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation Nimal Siripala de Silva during a press briefing yesterday criticised the statements expressed by Northern Province Chief Minister, C.V. Wigneswaran.

“The SLFP will never endorse for a federal solution,” he said. “The SLFP severely condemns remarks made by the Chief Minister. It only provoked those who are eyeing to spread racism in the South,” Siripala added.
