Newly appointed Minister of Womens’ Affairs at the Northern Provincial Council (NPC), Ananthi Sasitharan denied claims that Chief Minister, C.V. Wigneswaran was biased in his appointments of new ministers.

Speaking to the Nation, Sasitharan said that she was appointed based on the number of votes she had obtained at the 2013 Provincial Council polls and not because she had backed the Chief Minister during the recent turmoil.
