World Bank aid diverted to Sinhala colonisation in Mullaiththeevu
[TamilNet, Saturday, 03 September 2011, 00:06 GMT]
The assistance given by the World Bank to North East Services Improvement Project (NELSIP) to improve road development in recently resettled areas in the Puthukudiyiruppu and Karaithu’raippattu divisions of the Mullaiththeevu district is diverted to a recently initiated Sinhala colony called Sampath Nuwara in the district at the instructions of presidential sibling Basil Rajapaksa and SL colonial governor of the north Maj. Gen. Chandrasri. SL minister Rishad Baddiudeen is also involved in the racket. The World Bank has allotted the funds to help the war-torn people and while the local administration has almost finalised the programme of road development, all of a sudden the fund amounting to 15 million has been diverted to an intrusive Sinhala colony Sampath Nuwara initiated in the Ma’nal Aa’ru area now Sinhalicised as Weli-oya in the district.
SL Colonial Governor Chandrasri has issued stern orders to officials to spend the money for the road development of Sampath Nuwara (which literally means ‘wealthy town’ in Sinhala).
This Sinhala colony in the Mullaiththeevu district, recently settled with thousands of Sinhala families, is protected on all sides by Sinhala military camps.
All basic facilities are provided to this colony.
Even though the colony is in the Mullaiththeevu district, for Sinhalicisation purpose, administratively it is linked to the Anuradhapura district. But when it comes to funds the funds allotted to Vanni are spent on this colony.
The Indian donation of tractors about which the Indian Foreign Minister was recently bragging in the parliament, as India’s assistance to war-torn Tamils, were actually first distributed to the Sinhala colonisers of Sampath Nuwara. Chandrasri was behind that racket too.
Informed circles say that Chandrasri has personal political and material ambitions built around Sampath Nuwara and Sinhala colonisation in Mullaitheevu.
By not recognising the national question and genocide in the island India and the USA contribute more and more to genocide through what they brag as development. The Indian Foreign Minister and the US Asst. Secretary of State should stop fooling around Eezham Tamils and the world by their talk of tractors, sewing machines and ice to fishermen, when they can’t attend to the fundamentals, Eezham Tamil politicians said.
