Sinhala military schemes Sinhalicisation of Vaakarai under Sirisena's command

[TamilNet, Monday, 18 December 2017, 21:05 GMT]
The occupying Sinhala military of genocidal Sri Lanka is refusing to release the lands of 47 families in Koa'ra'laip-pattu North (Vaakarai) division, Tamil civil sources at the divisional secretariat said. The SL military forced the uprooted Tamils to put their signatures in blank papers and seized the lands for the military base of 233 Brigade of the SL Army in 2008. Now, the SL military has put up a Buddhist stupa in the lands. The area is located 68 km north of Batticaloa city on Batticaloa-Trincomalee A15 Highway.

The uprooted Tamil families from the area came together and staged a protest demanding their lands back in 2015. But, the SL military has not responded to their demands.

233 Brigade is one of the three brigades of 23 Division of the occupying Sri Lanka Army, which is stationed in Batticaloa.

The occupying Sinhala military stationed in Vaakarai is trying to carve out coastal access to Polonnaruwa district through Sinhala Buddhicisation of the area.

In the meantime, SL Mahaweli Ministry, which comes under SL President Maithiripala Sirisena is targeting to seize the border area of Batticaloa for Sinhala settlers from Polonnaruwa.

SL President Sirisena, who hails from Polonnaruwa, is also the Commander-in-Chief of the occupying Sinhala military.
