New Buddha statues in East

[TamilNet, Thursday, 02 August 2007, 08:20 GMT]
The Sri Lanka government are taking steps to install statues of Buddha in areas captured by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in the Moothoor east Eachchilampathu divisions. Buddha statue is being used as a symbol of naked aggression, said Mr.K.Thurairatnasingham, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian representing the Trincomalee district, according to Colombo media reports.

Local residents said statues of Buddha are being erected on a rock at Ilankaithuraimuhathuwaram in Eachchilampathu division, and at 3rd milepost located along Moothoor-Ki'liveddi road.

Mr Thurairatnasingham said that the Supreme Court has rejected fundamental right violation petitions filed displaced Tamils from Moothoor east and Sampoor due to military operation. This has shown that Tamils cannot expect justice from Sri Lanka's courts.

The government is taking steps to develop the east without consulting Tamils and their representatives elected by them. The government has planned to develop the east according to the plan formulated with the assistance of the Sri Lanka Army, the MP said.
