Eezham Tamils set to lose Vavuniyaa North to Sinhala colonists in civic elections

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 07 February 2018, 15:08 GMT]
The Sinhala colonisation and demographic changes engineered by the genocidal unitary State of Sri Lanka in Vavuniyaa North have gone to the extent that Eezham Tamils would be losing their political hold of Vavuniyaa North Divisional Council (Piratheasa Chapai) in the forthcoming civic elections, Tamil civil sources in Vavuniyaa said. Vavuniyaa North was entirely a Tamil division before the colonisation by Sinhala paramilitary-led colonists following the State-sponsored anti-Tamil pogrom in 1983. Although the area has been subjected to Sinhala colonisation for a long time through settling Sinhala paramilitary personnel and their families, the extent of silent colonisation has been accelerated after the war in the recent years with the aim of transforming Vavuniyaa North into a 'Sinhala Only' division as the recently Sinhalicised division of Weli-oya, the civil sources further said.

[TamilNet, Friday, 26 January 2018, 23:49 GMT]
“In South Africa, the political problem was solved and then the Truth and Reconciliation Commission came into being. Before all these things, the necessity of solving the national problem or the Tamil problem looms large,” said NPC Chief Minister Justice C.V. Wigneswaran, who was invited as a guest to the Colombo and New Delhi centric business exhibition Jaffna “International” Trade Fair” (JITF) held for the 8th consecutive year in Jaffna on Friday. The Chief Minister was also conveying the reservations of the native people in the North to the big-scale external investments not sensitive to the economic culture and concerns of the war affected population. Although the entire island is globally ranked as a ‘Middle Income Country’, the conflict and war affected homeland of Tamils in the North-East is below the poverty line according to the global standards, the CM further observed.
