Inviting more than 2,100 unemployed Tamil youth through village (GS) officials, the SL military establishment in Palaali staged an interview session on Thursday without revealing the real nature of the recruitment process in advance. The candidates were invited to attend the session with the offer of ‘government jobs’. But, the civil-clad military officers present at the venue came with the description of ‘military jobs’ as nurses, drivers, motor vehicle repairers, farm workers, electrical workers, painters, English teachers, dance teachers, music teachers and singers. Colombo is deceiving the Tamils to become a subservient workforce to serve the occupying Sinhala military through luring unemployed youth as the earlier moves by the SL military to woo Tamils to SL military have miserably failed.
Although the GS officials had been deployed to select and invite potential candidates with the offer of government jobs, the move was claimed as an initiative of an outfit named ‘Reconciliation Centre’. The name of the director of the organisation was given as one Mr S. Selva.
However informed sources told TamilNet that the move was executed through Mr Selvarasa Pathmanathan alias KP, who is being operated by the SL Defence Ministry in Colombo.
Two operatives, known as Kannan and Yathavan, associated with KP took the lead role staging the deceptive move of the Sri Lankan Defence Ministry at Nelliyadi Central College.
The principal of the college was pressurised to collaborate after the school administration was reluctant in allowing the school premises to be deployed as the venue.
At the end of the session, the military officers kept the original certificates stating that the certificates would be returned after processing the appointments.
The move also seeks to showcase to the world that the SL military was successfully employing a Tamils. At the same time the Tamils being lured would also be exploited as paramilitary ‘coolies’, civil sources in Vadamaraadchi told TamilNet pointing out how Tamil females were exploited by the SL military that lured them with the offer of data entry jobs at the computer section.
More than 50% of the job seekers trapped in the interview session by the KP operatives were women. A section of unemployed graduates from the University of Jaffna also got into the trap by the SL military establishment, the sources further said.
