Colombo demarcates new Batticaloa villages for Sinhalicisation

[TamilNet, Monday, 20 February 2012, 22:27 GMT]
The Colombo government has been engaged in creating new villages for Sinhalese who are being brought down from the south to the Eastern Province. The SL government authorities have set aside around 25,000 acres of land in Vavu'natheevu in Batticaloa district under the pretext of allowing members of the so-called Sri Lanka Civil Defence Force, who are Sinhala home guards trained to colonise Tamil land by the Sri Lankan military, to do cultivation. Hundred percent of the paramilitary home guards in the unit receiving the lands in Batticaloa are Sinhalese.

The Eastern Provincial Council led by a leader of a paramilitary group as its Chief Minister has started fencing the land for the exclusive use of the SL Home Guards, according to Batticaloa district Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian Mr.P.Selvarasa.

The TNA MP revealed the hidden agenda of the Colombo government while addressing a meeting at Vellave'li Kalaimaka'l Viththiyaalayam (school) in Poaratheevuppattu education zone of the Batticaloa district.

Mr. Selvarasa further said that the Tamil people are struggling to restore their lost rights and traditional lands. But the Tamil ministers in the Mahinda Rajapakse government are engaged in making speeches to divert the attention of Tamil people from this goal.

“We will not stop our struggle until we reach the goal to fulfill the political aspirations of Tamil people” Mr.Selvarasa declared.
