“Once that is done he will meet the President. That meeting should take place over the next few days,” Maulana said. Maulana said that Chandrakanthan is currently meeting his supporters in the eastern province who had voted for him at the election. Former Eastern Province Chief Minister Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan (Pillayan) is to meet President Mahinda Rajapaksa this week to discuss the outcome of the elections in the eastern province.Chandrakanthan’s spokesman Azad Maulana told the Colombo Gazette that the meeting will focus on the governing administration to be formed in the east. The Tamil Makkal Viduthalai Pullikal (TMP) which is headed by Chandrakanthan, is meanwhile confident that the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) will back the government to govern the eastern province, Maulana said.He said that the SLMC should be aware of the development work undertaken by the government in the eastern province after the LTTE was defeated and so supporting the government will be the right option.
