Colombo brings 1500 Sinhalese from South to Mannaar
Stepping up the process of colonisation of the country of Eezham Tamils, the occupying Sri Lanka has brought in 1,500 Sinhalese in buses to Musali DS division in Mannaar District, which is bordering the North Western and North Central provinces. The occupying Colombo government had already planned to settle down five thousand Sinhalese families from the South in Mannaar district in an attempt to change the demography of the district before holding the Northern Provincial Council election, according to a confidential document received by the Mannaar district secretariat.
The Sinhalese colonizers brought in have been settled in temporary sheds, news sources in Mannaar said.
The latest move by Colombo comes while the uprooted Tamils and Muslims from the Musali area are still residing as refugees in temporary huts without basic facilities.
The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) in participation with Tamil and Muslim civil representatives is to conduct a detailed discussion shortly on the land appropriation in Mannaar district, said TNA parliamentarian Mr Selvam Adaikkalanathan.
