Rotating the chief Ministeria​l post from time to time would affect the developmen​t work: S.Chandrak​anthan

Former Chief Minister of the Eastern Province Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan alias Pillayan said the Tamils in the East should not be worried about their future as he would be playing a leading role in the development of that area since he had been appointed as the Presidential Advisor on Eastern development.Addressing a press conference in Colombo former CM went on to say, There wouldn’t be any issue with the Muslim Chief Minister or with the SLMC as all three communities could work together in the East under present circumstances. He said this was practical as there were members representing all three communities in the provincial council.He also said that it should be determined whether there are constitutional provisions to implement the demand made by the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) for the rotation of Chief Ministerial post in the Eastern Province.Mr. Chandrakanthan told journalists yesterday that rotating the chief Ministerial post from time to time would not be a wise move as it would affect the development work. He made this point especially with regard to the proposal made by Senior Minister D. E. W. Gunasekera for a multi-party administration in the East.
