Speaking to Ceylon Today, Mr Premajayanth, said,
“What is the ethnic issue? It is Sampanthan of the Tamil National Alliance who is talking about the ethnic issue. What he wants is North-East integration and to establish autonomy which we will never allow. We are not prepared to give anything beyond 13.”
