Moves are underway to remove Northern Province Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran from the Tamil National Alliance (TNA).
The move follows statements made continuously by Wigneswaran against the TNA leadership.
The Jaffna based media quoted some TNA parliamentarians as saying they support moves to remove Wigneswaran from the TNA.
Wigneswaran contested the last Northern Provincial Council elections under the TNA ticket and won the polls and was made Chief Minister.
However at the last Parliamentary elections Wigneswaran had not supported the TNA and instead decided to remain neutral.
