TNA relays US-India paradigm for ‘nondescript’ model of solutions

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 8 November 2011 09:39 No Comment]

Addressing a diaspora gathering in London on Sunday, The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) politicians elucidated on trying a ‘nondescript’ model of solution for the national question of Eezham Tamils. The TNA relay on the paradigm comes after conditioned for long by New Delhi and after conferring with ‘creative thinking’ in the US State Department on the models for solutions. The TNA leaders didn’t hide the fact, but said it is worth trying, as the UN, EU, India and the USA are watching and any failures could be suitably addressed. Commenting on the nondescript nature of the model, Tamil political observers said that it is ideal for imperialism to get leverage and time for ‘development’ inroads and would provide more legitimacy, time and bartering power for genocidal Colombo to complete the annihilation of Eezham Tamils as a nation, while engaging them in a prolonged day-to-day struggle.

Relaying the outlines of the nondescript model at the gathering attended by all shades of Tamil polity, TNA leader R. Sampanthan said that “contentious” terms such as self-determination and homeland should be avoided.

We do not say that the North and East in the island belongs to us, he further clarified the fundamentals of the model he wanted to relay.

Mr. Sampanthan was harping on “workable and durable” solution to meet the linguistic and cultural diversity of the North and East part of the country traditionally inhabited by “our people.”

He was also harping on a solution to get “sufficient access to governance” to decide political, economic, social and cultural aspirations of the people in the North and East.

We will not accept anything not substantial, we will tell the international community if things are not workable, he was confident.

Sampanthan ‘indicated’ that the powers that paved way for the war are keen in finding an acceptable solution to uphold their own credibility.

His speech also implied that TNA is the favoured choice of Tamil leadership for India and the US to support.

Sampanthan indicated that the TNA would pursue the war crimes investigations.

He spoke against colonisation in the North and East and said that the TNA had brought out this matter to the attention of the powers, but refrained from talking on structural genocide.

Mr Sampanthan, a lawyer by profession, denied the long legacy of the call of Eezham Tamils for self- determination, and said that SJV Chelvanayagam spoke against separation in 1970 and that he was always prepared to take up workable solutions, even after passing the Vaddukkoaddai Resolution.

According to Mr. Sampanthan all those who were asking for separation were rejected in politics, and even the LTTE was prepared to try internal self-determination as evidenced by the Oslo declaration.

India will not accept separation, Sampanthan asserted.

Orientating his political position on a majority – minority formula, below the level of a national question, Mr. Sampanthan said all solutions should be found only within the island.

Mr. Sampanthan stressed that there should be no difference of opinion and all should work for a workable solution.

Meanwhile, conscious of the unworkability of their own paradigms in meeting the realities of the concerned people and the frustrations it may cause, various intelligence agencies are keen in knowing what political steps the Eezham Tamils might take.
