UNP wants to erect 1000 Sinhala-Buddhist temples in occupied Tamil country

[TamilNet, Friday, 02 February 2018, 22:42 GMT]
The UNP of the ruling Yahapalanaya alliance, particularly SL Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe, has recently gone on record vowing to erect 1,000 Buddhist temples in the occupied country of Eezham Tamils in the North-East of the island. The agenda is also mentioned in the manifesto of UNP in the run-up to the local elections. The UNP claims as it has managed to allocate 500 million rupees to the programme. The propaganda waged by the UNP and the SLFP in Vavuniyaa has been centred around the theme of SL State sponsorship to Sinhala-Buddhisication of Vavuniyaa and the North. The construction of 1,000 locations for Sinhalicisation in the North-East project is being termed as a ‘reconciliation project’.

Out of the planned 1,000 Buddha temples, 125 will be based in Ki'linochchi, according to the claims by the UNP.

In the meantime, SL President Maithiripala Sirisena, who has been waging propaganda seeking the votes of the Sinhalese for the SLFP, was promising 8 million rupees for the expansion of an educational establishment at the Sinhalicised village of Madu-kanthai in Vavuniyaa.

The UNP policy is nothing else than the so-called ‘Sri Lankan uniformity’ in the constitutional discourse which has been promoted by the Western establishment, commented Tamil activists in Vavuniyaa.
