Pillayan demands CM post

    Military jingoism of this govt depends on Pillaiyan`s corporation. His demand has to be met if he is to be trapped within the agreement. CBK says one of her big mistakes was to have had an no-contest pact with JVP. JVP got 39 seats just because of the electoral pact it had with UPFA. Pilaiyan may become an unstoppable challenger to Mahinda Rajapakse`s grand design of cheating the minorities one at a time with Unitary Constitution.

    [A senior minister said a deal had been struck with the TMVP but refused to divulge if there had been an agreement to give the Chief Minister s post to a member of the armed group.]

    This automatically lifts the status of TMVP in the eyes of those driven by status - something that the people of Batticaloa are in need of. Whether this is fair and just is another question. Given the reality in Batticaloa, this may be their strongest weapon to be not second to any other province.

    [Pillayan demands CM post ]

    Yes why not.

    If they give it to a Sinhalese that is when the next trouble will start. The chances are it will.

    If they make him CM the leader of an armed group then they must also make VP CM of north no?
