World Bank helps Colombo’s colonialism of Tamil country

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 13 April 2011, 05:06 GMT]
When the effective link between northern and eastern parts of the country of Eezham Tamils are systematically neglected to disrupt the contiguity and to prevent the integration of Eezham Tamils, the World Bank on Tuesday has approved 100 million US dollar additional financing for road link of the east with the west to strengthen Colombo’s colonialism and the Colombo-centric subordination of Eezham Tamils. “Connecting people to prosperity between the East and West will be critical for Sri Lanka to realize its ambitious development goals,” said Diarietou Gaye, World Bank Country Director for Sri Lanka.

“This assistance is being provided for the scaling up of the project which will enable the Government of Sri Lanka to provide improved connectivity to the Northern and Eastern provinces and thereby reap the benefits of the cessation of the conflict,” the World Bank website said.

The World Bank has taken it as a policy to abet the Sri Lankan state in its structural genocide of Tamils and the dismemberment of the Eezham Tamil nation in the island. The diaspora has to rise up against the member countries of the World Bank that support such a programme in the island in the name of ‘development’, commented a development studies academic in Batticaloa.
