Implement The 13th Amendment: Modi Tells Gota

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the joint press conference held yesterday (29) said that India is confident that the reconciliation process under President Gotabaya Rajapaksa will see the implementation of the 13th Amendment.

The newly elected President Gotabaya Rajapaksa accepting his invitation by the Indian Prime Minister made his first official visit to India this week. A special reception was held at the Rashtrapati Bhavan by the President of India Ram Nath Kovind which was also attended by Prime Minister Modi.

“I am confident that the government of Sri Lanka will carry forward the process of reconciliation, to fulfil the aspirations of the Tamil for equality, justice, peace and respect. It also includes the implementation of the 13th Amendment,” the Indian External Affairs Ministry translation of the statement made by PM Modi states.

The 13th amendment which introduced the provincial council system to enhance devolution. However, the full application of the 13th amendment is yet to be achieved.

President Rajapaksa who won predominantly from Sinhala Buddhist votes will have a challenge ahead of him to gain the confidence of the minority.

We publish below the statement in full:

Translation of Press Statement by Prime Minister during State Visit of President of Sri Lanka to India

Your Excellency President Gotabaya Rajapaksa,
Senior officials from Sri Lanka and India,
Friends,
Ayubovan!
Vanakkam!
Namaskar!

I am pleased to welcome President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and his delegation to India. I heartily congratulate the President for his decisive victory in the election. I congratulate the people of Sri Lanka for the smooth election process. The strength and maturity of democracy in Sri Lanka is a matter of great pride and joy. It is an honor for us that President Rajapaksa chose India for his first foreign visit and gave us a chance to welcome him in India within two weeks of assuming office. It symbolizes the strength and dynamism of friendly relations between India and Sri Lanka. It is also a sign of how much importance both countries attach to these relations. We look forward to working closely with President Rajapaksa for the progress of both countries and peace, prosperity and security in our entire common region.

Excellency,

The mandate that you have received expresses the aspirations of the Sri Lankan people for an organized, strong and prosperous Sri Lanka. In this regard, India’s good wishes and cooperation are always with Sri Lanka. A stable, secure and prosperous Sri Lanka is not only in India’s interest but also in the interest of the entire Indian Ocean Region.

Friends,

India is Sri Lanka’s closest maritime neighbor and a trusted friend. Our historical, ethnic, linguistic, cultural and civilizational contacts are a strong foundation of close relations between the two countries.

In line with my Government’s “Neighborhood First” policy and SAGAR doctrine, we prioritize our relations with Sri Lanka. The security and development of our two countries are inseparable. Therefore, it is natural that we should be aware of each other’s safety and sensibilities.

Today the President and myself had a very good and fruitful discussion on bilateral relations and international affairs of mutual interest. We have decided that together we will strengthen the multi-faceted partnership and cooperation between the two countries. I have assured the President of India’s commitment to a development partnership with Sri Lanka. As always, this cooperation will be in accordance with the priorities of the people of Sri Lanka. A new $ 400 million line of credit will give a boost to infrastructure and development in Sri Lanka. I am confident that the Sri Lankan economy will benefit as well as this Line of Credit will also accelerate the Project Cooperation of mutual benefit between the two countries. We are delighted that under the Indian Housing Project, 46,000 houses have been constructed for the internally displaced in the Northern and Eastern Provinces of Sri Lanka. There is good progress in the construction of 14,000 houses for Tamils of Indian origin in the Up-Country region. I am also pleased that we have agreed to use the previously announced $ 100 million credit line for solar projects in Sri Lanka early. There was a good discussion between President and me on 20 community development projects and other people-centric projects issued by India in Sri Lanka on the basis of grants in education and infrastructure.

Friends,

India has always opposed terrorism in all its forms and also expected action from the international community against other forms of terrorism, including cross-border terrorism. On the occasion of Easter this year, terrorists in Sri Lanka launched brutal attacks on the diversity of mankind and the valuable heritage of symbiosis. I went to Sri Lanka immediately after the elections in India to express India’s unwavering support in the Sri Lankan fight against terrorist and extremist forces. I have discussed in detail with the President Rajapaksa for mutual security and to further strengthen mutual cooperation against terrorism. Sri Lankan police officers in major Indian institutions are already receiving the benefit of counter terrorist training. I am happy to announce a special Line of Credit of 50 million dollars to Sri Lanka to combat terrorism.

Friends,

Issues affecting the livelihood of fishermen were also discussed. We agreed that we will continue with a constructive and humane approach in this matter.

Friends,

We also openly exchanged views on reconciliation in Sri Lanka. President Rajapaksa told me about his inclusive political outlook on ethnic harmony. I am confident that the Government of Sri Lanka will carry forward the process of reconciliation, to fulfill the aspirations of the Tamils for equality, justice, peace and respect. It also includes the implementation of the 13th amendment. India will become a trusted partner for development throughout Sri Lanka including North and East.

Friends,

I once again welcome President Rajapaksa to India. His visit will strengthen our mutual relations. And our cooperation will promote development in both countries and prosperity, peace and stability in the region.

Bohoma-Sthuti.
Nandri

Thank you

        America won’t directly involve while its proxy India is there to put pressure on SL. See, India is indirectly warning SL on 2 things ever since Gota came to power; China & Reconciliation. Indian foreign minister’s immediate & unannounced visit with Modi’s invitation looks like inviting him home, and telling what they expect him to do, then send him with some relief package. Just like an area thug warning a little boy. India doesn’t respect SL’s sovereignty, time to go with China.

              Wimply Kid,

              China’s interest in SL is commercial at least for now. As you can see China doesn’t interfere in our politics, and India’s interest is political, and often times, reflects its master USA’s agendas. Indian economy can’t survive without USA, so they will do anything USA asks them to do for selfish reasons. These days Indian economy is doing very bad, and Modi is giving us 50 mil USD to improve our security and half the Indians still don’t have access to toilets.

              Question is, do we really need to listen to a country whose prime minister, Modi just last month declared that ‘India free of open defecation’???

                Since Sri Lanka is unable to repay the loan taken to build Matala airport, China will take over and convert it a concentration camp to rehabilitate Sinhalese on Chinese culture, just like what they are doing to Uighurs. In future there will be no Rajapakse, there will only be Rou Park Chou.

          It has been always the fact. In 1983 when Western countries started to deliver propaganda to the world saying former Prez. JRJ was pro-West, India scared. India scared not because US, they scared because they will lose superpower status over Sri lanka. However, this was the biggest Western trick ever played to work toward black mailing India to become a permanent ally. This trick worked well on Indian, and Western countries proved to Indian by providing Tamil and Indian with immigrants and refugee status and told Indian and Tamil that they hate Sinhalese and love Tamil and Indian while on other hand, they kept Sinhalese’ eyes closed by continuously delivering propaganda as JRJ pro-West. At the time, if JRJ ever investigated what really Western countries were doing, there were 100% evidence that Jews and their Western supporters secretly met with Tamil and Indian and told them to “keep quiet”and just India have to work toward recognising Israel and open up businesses for Western countries.
          to “keep quiet” mean not to allow Sri lanka know that they were supporting Tamil or met Indian in the Western countries, also, not to allow any news of Jews meeting Tamil or Indian because Jews were supporting Sri lanka army which made sure Million of Tamil to be eligible for citizenship. Israelis made sure the war stays fore more than 25-30 years to guarantee Tamil citizenship, Indian recognise Israel, open up Indian business and come to military agreements. They achieved all these with Indian 20-25 years as planed

          Ha, ha, ha, haaaa… Native, that’s a good one indeed. So, let us call Novice Gota, the sucker of Hindutva juice. Both buggers are high on Islamophobia and Fascism imposed through the backdoor of so called “democracy”. Modi thumps on his chest, screaming like a baboon as “India is the largest democracy….” The scrap talk was trained by the Zionist masters to keep the slave kooli buggers happy as they themselves do not know that they are being slaved. As for the Gota and his goon team, its the same slavery. Both mass murdering thieves are in the same Zionist alliance and its dark project in destroying Muslim nations and total devastating Muslim’s social security leaving them open to genocides and state sponsored pogroms. India is targeting Pakistan and Iran as Israel wants them finished by 2020. Gota and his dumb Sinhala racists are locked in huge geo-political war games that is going to invite ballistic missile raining on Sri Lanka. That will be a great poetic justice to the 100 years of Govigama racism and its impunity.

          Gota is the most unsuitable one for leadership coming from the long line of GOVIGAMA RULING ELITE gangster bloodline. From DS up to the Gota, the entire GOVIGAMA ELITE’s progeny strangely were doing one thing deceitfully from the very beginning of the 1900’s (20th) century. Its the divide and rule strategy tactic of using the SINHALA SUPREMACIST Agenda to secure the TOP POLITICAL positions in the ruling of this unfortunate nation. Its a complicated one when someone from outside to the GOVI clan, an ordinary peasant would ever knowing this truth due to the secrecy of the Zionism and its backer’s power then. But, now its a known truth as the world events is a testimony to the facts found in Islamic eschatological factors and end time prophesies which confirming the world wide enmity engineered by the US/British/Israeli backed enmity leading towards destruction of Muslim life, property and faith. Narendra Modi was created by the Zionist Jewish mission through many incidents, including the RAW/CIA joint operation of pushing the Tamils for an armed insurrection that led to the controversial killing of RAJIV GANDHI which is still unknown who killed him as he was seen as an obstacle to the Zionist dream which is in progress right now. Now we know that it was Modi’s ascension to the throne as he can be used for the destruction of the Muslims. Modi supporting Gota and the Rajapakses is one of those obvious reasons that proves the Zionist agenda which is in progress right now at this very moment.

          See, everyone who followed the recently concluded FAKE Presidential election contest, know very well, that according to the enthusiasm shown by the mass population that Gota stands nowhere near of winning it. Its a foregone conclusion of the general public that it was Sajith Premadasa who will be the winner as the next President. But, alas everyone was surprised by the winning of an un-winnable SKUNK Gotabhaya Rajapakse coming out as the President. The moment we heard about this news, the doubts we had about the Zionist plans were cleared. Its nothing but the same ZIONIST plan which is growing stronger and stronger in the implementation of their plans as they are implementing all over the Muslim world in pushing them into wars and internal conflicts. Beginning from taking over of Palestine after destroying the Khalifate of Ottoman Empire, Destroying Moghul Empire, creating divided small Muslim nations and placing Jewish bloodlined secret Jews as disguised as locals to capture power that created Kingdoms and Sheikdoms sans true Islamic politics as taught by the Prophet of Islam, thereby creating slave puppet regimes that work for internal self destruction to pave the way for the presently successfully running of Greater Israel project. Modi, Rajapakses, Sirisena/Ranil, Aung San Sukis are all under this project of creating a bad world for the Muslims through their WAR ON ISLAM pogroms and genocides.

      Hon. Indian Prime Minister Nadendra Modi,

      Namaskar,

      Thank you for welcoming the newly elected Hon. President of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka.

      India already sacrificed one Prime Minister, by getting in the middle of the Para conflicts.

      The Para-Sinhala are already discussing scrapping the 13A, that was pushed down their throats by the Indians.

      All the Prime Ministers and Presidents carried out policies and actions dictated by the Para-Sinhala Para-Buddhist majority based on the desires and imaginations of the saffron clad Para-Monks. They all arrived from India Illegally by Boats called Hora-Oru and Kalla-Thonis.

      The core principle of the Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhist “ is hatred and jealousy of the fellow citizen, and is a distortion of Buddhism and is an insult to the Buddha. They also prostrate to imbecile monks.

      Ever, since the Paras landed from India, there was mayhem, the Pristine environment destroyed and the natives were driven into the jungle. This is confirmed by the modern genetics studies of mitochondrial DNA of the Paras and the Natives. The first 6 Para Kong’s did not prostrate to the imbecile monks,

      Therefore, we respectfully request, that because of the inability of the Paras to live together, because of the hegemony of the Para Monks,, Priests, Ulama and Mullahs, that you take your long-lost Indians back to their Homeland, Bharat, carve out a state out of Southern and Eastern Bharat, and resettle then, just the same way it was done during the Srima -Shastri pact.

      This land is the Land of Nature Veddah Aethho, and not the Land of the Paras.

      Then the Paras can live in peace with in their Homeland, where the Pristine philosophy of Buddhism originated, and may succeed in reforming Para-Sinhala Para-Buddhism.

      The Land of Native Veddah Aethho will be declared a natural sanctuary for the natives only, not the Paras. Then,there will be peace.

          Mrs. S C Pasqual,

          This is History based on facts and modern scientific genetic evidence.

          Why do you have to prostrate to saffron clad imbecile monks, when the first 6 Kings and the Sinhala and Tamils did not prostrate to them?

          From Nature Genetics, 2013.

          MtDNA haplogroup analysis revealed that several West Eurasian haplogroups as well as Indian-specific mtDNA clades were found amongst the Sri Lankan populations. Through a comparison with the mtDNA HVS-1 and part of HVS-2 of Indian database, both Tamils and Sinhalese clusters were affiliated with Indian subcontinent populations than Vedda people who are believed to be the native population of the island of Sri Lanka.

          The imbecile test. You can identify them, when you see someone who prostrates to imbecile saffron clad Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhist “ monk.

          Do you prostrate to Monks? If yes, you are an imbecile, somebody who lacks intellect.

          Based on this test, there are a lot of Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhists” , who are imbeciles, generally supported by the measured mean IQ of 79. Even the imbecile politicians have got into this imbecile act.

          The first 6 Para Kong’s in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho did not prostrate to imbecile Monks. There were none.

        Amarasiri with a mental disorder,
        “The Para-Sinhala are already discussing scrapping the 13A, that was pushed down their throats by the Indians.”
        Your mind has a problem to figure out who are ‘Natives’ and who are ‘Para’.

        ‘Para’ Hindians pushed 13th Amendment down the throat of Native Sinhalayo to please ‘Para’ Malabar Demalu who are the descendants of slaves brought to the Land of Sinhala and Vedda Eththo from Hindusthan. Since this unpleasant thing has caused serious stomach upset, Sinhalayo should drink lot of ‘Aralu’ and push that out from the other end.

        President Gotabhaya Rajapakse should tell Hindians that low caste Demala people in Yapanaya do not want Land and Police powers given to NPC. Therefore, he has to respect the wishes of majority of Demala people in the North, instead of pushing something through the throat of low caste Demala people to please a tiny minority of Wellala elite politicians.

        President should point out that now more than 50% of Demala people from North and East live outside these two provinces and they are scattered in all 24 Districts in Sri Lanka.

          Eagle Confused Eye,

          Perhaps it is time to scatter the Paras from India across all the States of India, especially in the Southern and Eastern dates where their cousins live, and let them realize the utopia of Sinhala Buddhism in the land where Buddha was born and spread his message, and finally enlighten the convoluted Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhism “ into their utopia.

          Per molecular genetics of my-DNA, the Sinhala, Tamils, Muslims etc are Paras in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho.Even the Deepswansa and Mahawansa, for whatever it is worth, says so.

      It’s silly to assume that Gota has been put into power by Sinhalese only.

      Gota represents people so pressing Gota means pressing SL people.

      Even if it’s right why shouldn’t anybody listen to them?

      Why should India be concerned about our power sharing & why should power sharing be based on racial basis?

      SL majority community have to sacrifice their lives & let Modi to live happily for ever.

        So far the results of encounters of Sri Lanka with others:
        Vs Switzerland – Sri Lanka received a TKO (Technical Knock Out).
        Vs India – KO (Knock Out) with Sri Lanka floored.
        With this dismal performance, I could predict the future:
        Vs UN (United Nations) – Referee stopping fight on mercy to Sri Lanka.
        Vs UK (United Kingdom) – Sri Lanka losing badly on points.
        Vs USA (United States of America) – Definitely Sri Lanka ending in coma.

              A person from Sri Lanka who supports/defends this country.

              “When did people first start calling themselves Sri Lankans?”

              After we got independence and was renamed as Sri Lanka then we called ourselves Sri Lankan.

              “Why do you think they should be called Sri Lankan? “

              Why do you think an indian should be called an indian? why do you think an american should be called an american? Why should a chinese be called chinese?

              “What does it give them?”

              Gives them a nationality.

              In regards to the demala word, sadi demala used in the poem Rajasinha hatana is a good example.
              To add to that, in my opinion you ask me all these stupid questions while you expect the Sinhalese to not give a shit about there country while you people play around, you guys say Sri Lanka is a multi-ethnic state and that the Sinhalese should adapt accordingly to the minorities but, if it’s about tamil nadu being a multi ethnic state, nope, it’s a tamil state and everyone should follow tamil ways. You guys are pro-multi ethnic in SL but, in tn you guys are strictly tamil.

            Read the history carefully. Sinhalese always went for foreign assistance. To counter Cholas they asked for help from Pandyas paying kappam as well as taking brides from them. They lost sovereignty for 50 years to Cholas and had to get help from Pandyas to regain it. Kotte kingdom surrendered to Portuguese without a fight. British defeated Kandyan kingdom and subdued Sinhalese for 150 years. Even to defeat LTTE, help was got from many countries promising to settle Tamil problem in a fair manner, but it was never honored. Mahinda sought help from China to counter India in order to dodge the issue of reconciliation with Tamils. Hall mark of Rajapakses is “promise and come, we will see about it later” (Porondhuvela enda passe balagamu). This is exactly what Gota did recently. He agreed to the request (or is it order) of Modi without opening his mouth, and is now talking big after arriving in Sri Lanka, that 13th amendment cannot be implemented in full as you cannot do against the will of Sinhalese. If he was brave he should have told that to Modi, without being a mouse there and trying to be a lion back home. Now the situation is different with BJP in power in India. Gota cannot hoodwink BJP how Mahinda hoodwinked Congress party. He also said that he will re-negotiate the lease with China, which is another lie as he knows that if he antagonizes China, he will be toppled and Mahinda appointed.

              Dr. Gnana Sankaralingam
              What about during the kulashekra war when pandya nadu was ruled by the Sinhalese and the cholas were being massacred day by day at the hands of the Sinhalese army? Kotte kingdom became a vassal to the portugese because of their own stupidity and then the portugese took over the jaffna “kingdom”. Literally apart from kotte, the only ones who couldn’t fight of the portugese were the tamils in the north who had to be rescued by a Sinhalese Kandyan army (so you people should be thanking us right now since your people would be extinct in Sri Lanka if it wasn’t for the Sinhalese), sitawaka, raigama and even the small states ruled by patabendiges were able to beat the portugese to keep their independence. British ruled over us, sure, but they didn’t gain that through war. On the other hand, the Sinhalese didn’t bend over to the british and become plantation slaves while the reason you tamils are in Sri Lanka is because of being brought as slaves. If you look at history you can see a pattern where tamils hit only when someone is at their weakest and even then they get beaten back which is why such a small island with a small population was able to push back a pathetic empre such as cholas. You people should be worshipping the Sinhalese not your animal-headed gods for not following the same policy of hitting when at weakest and asking for mass deportation of tamils after the war and the last time I checked no foreign army fought the ltte during the 4th war.

                Not to mention, the Sinhalese even after the portugese gave fight to keep their independence even though they lost some parts to the dutch and british they fought fiercely to keep the parts they had and to take back the parts they lost. On the other hand, the portugese came, took over the tamils in the north and that’s it, not a peep out of them. For the next 100s of years of europeans the tamils didn’t rebel or do anything except the tamils just rolled over and preferred to take it from the europeans while the Sinhalese fought tooth and nail. Now in the modern age they come around talking how they fought for this country just as much as the Sinhalese and how their history on this island is on par with the Sinhalese history. Just get lost you cancerous people.

            Eagle Confused Eye,

            The Sinhalayo, the Demalu, the Mattakalu, the Pranagio, the Suddho , Jabari, and the Cheenu are All Paras in the former Pristine Land of Native Veddah Aethho, per modern molecular genetics studies on the mitochondrial DNA of the Paras and the Native Veddah Aethho .Besides that the historical records from Deepawansa and Mahawansa, for what it is worth, despite its lies and imaginations also claim that they all are Paras, including the Sinhalayo.

            You need comprehension training and molecular genetics education, to properly evaluate information and data. You need further education, just like the Greeks and The Catholic Church needed in astronomy and the Heliocentric model.

            2/2=O, is not correct , even though the Para-Sinhala Minister Wimal Buruwansa claims.

          In Plato’s Republic he described in The Republic, the ideal city, or polis, was one based on justice and human virtue. … Plato set forth a five-fold classification to describe how the city ought to be governed. The best form of government, he argued, was an aristocratic model based on the rulership of philosopher kings.

          In the Rajapakse Mafia Republic, the ideal state or country, the Dhamma Deepaya, was one based on injustice and Para-Sinhala Para-Buddhist “ethics” of hatred and jealousy of fellow citizen, and insulting The Buddha. Rajapaksas and the Para-Sinhala Para-Buddhists set forth a five-fold classification to describe how the state ought to be governed. The best form of government, they argued, was an aristocratic model based on the rulership of crooks and criminal presidents, with fleets of white vans filled with imbecile Para-Buddhist goons and supported by Imbecile Para-Sinhala who prostrate to imbecile Para-“Buddhist” Monks.

      Like how SWRD released a set of mad dogs in 1956 and paid the penalty when tried to control them, the same fate will fall on Gota. Now he has released another set of mad dogs. He cannot satisfy one party or other, and there is no room for tight rope walking. If he tries to satisfy one, other one will get him. This is why I had been telling Tamils to get Gota elected either by voting for him or abstaining, so that everything will be in a mess. Fortunately the same result was obtained despite Tamils voting against Gota. Stupid TNA fellows had been taking Tamils for a ride according to their selfish agenda. This is an opportune moment for Tamils to get their aspirations to live with dignity and safety.

    Gota has had his cojones squeezed tight by Modi. The line of credit is the beginning of a stranglehold around the collective crotch of the Medamulana louts and their hangers-on. Watch this space. Any buggering about with the Tamils will be dealt with with fearsome force. Unfortunately this also means the muslims can and will continue to buggered about with, the poor sods.

      It is nice to hear a Sinhalese opting for a Federal Solution to sort out the ethnic problem of Srilanka. Now that Gotha has been returned to power overwhelmingly and as Sajith too has received Tamil votes overwhelmingly, I am sure there won’t be any obstruction to a federal solution. Gothabya considers himself a leader of the Sinhalese people and not a follower of the masses. Hence there can’t be any hurdles to clear.

            What the hell are you on about??? first of all, Sri Lanka is a Sinhala Buddhist country whether you people like it or not just like how tamil nadu is a home for tamils Sri Lanka is the home for Sinhalese, if you think Sri Lanka is a mutli-ethnic land where everyone has their share of claim to history I’m sorry but, you’re wrong. Sri Lanka is a Sinhala priority country. Second, the reason Gota was elected I would say is if they picked UNP that means the Sinhalese would be the ones getting the boot in their own country since puthano is hanging around some unlikeable muslim minister and seems to have bent over to the pro-ltte TNA. The way I see it, you guys are upset not because Gota is pro-Sinhalese or pro-Army, you guys are upset because you didn’t get a president who would bend over to you people’s demands. The Goo and Pee government showed how useless they are and the people are doing the logical thing without letting in any of the spineless puppets like ranil from unp back into govt. Plus, who the hell are you to insult Anagarika Dharmapala, that poor man at least gave us Sinhalese a spine while under the white man’s boot in our own country but, of course, your people had no problems under the british since you tamils lived like kings under them while being top men of the govt. Now that you people can’t rule, all you can do is oppose everything Sinhala.

                Was tamil nadu tamil when it was created? nope, but, it became tamil because they were the people who lived there for the longest time, fought for it and built it from ground up. Same applies here, the Sinhalese fought for it, built it from the ground up and lived here which is why it’s a Sinhalese country.

                “This island can be “home” to any number of people with different culture, religion, language, heritage, ……………….. however an island cannot have an exclusive religion, language, heritage,………….

                Of course, many ethnicities and religions can be on this island but, that does not mean they will be the representatives of this country. There are buddhist Sinhalese in tamil nadu but, when you see a culture, religion or a person to represent tamil nadu its a tamil, hindu who follows tamil culture just like in Sri Lanka even though certain minorities with different cultures exist they will not be the representatives of the country.

                “You don’t belong here, as you are a descendant of Kallathonie convert from South India.”

                  I don’t care how Tamil Nadu got its name however I ask you a question answer it properly.

                  All those wars you mentioned were fought by imported vellaikkara padei, from various Erivirar Pattinams in South India.

        Why should Native Sinhalayo who shed their blood and sacrificed their lives to save this country from ‘Para’ Demala, ‘Para’ Portuguese, ‘Para’ Dutch, ‘Para’ British and ‘Para’ Malabar terrorists and kept it as a Unitary State give a part of their country as a Federal State to the descendants of slaves brought to Sinhale by colonial parasites to exploit this country. ‘Para’ Wellala Malabars joined British and helped them to keep Native Sinhalayo who opposed colonial rule oppressed.

        Now Demalu live in all the Districts in Sinhale. So how can a Federal solution benefit Demalu who are scattered all over the country.

          waste of time talking to sinhalese about federalism.Even the educated ones don’t understand it,let alone the country bumpkins in the villages.If you explain that federalism is the thread that keeps together a cloth of different varieties like in india or switzerland or malaysia,they haven’t the IQ levels to understand that and will always think the opposite that it will lead to separatism.

          so tell wiggy and crowd without waiting for something they will never have to go for the full implementation of the 13th amendment.From what i can see the 13th will allow tamils in the northeast to manage their affairs.

          Also the 13 plus mahinda promised india in order to wipe out the tigers can also be asked for.A plus could be a senate where instead of population the no of senators are based on regions.That will stop any adverse legislation against the tamils to be passed.Mahinda said the plus he referred to was the senate.

          We can’t be asking for federalism which the sinhala leaders can’t give without getting a backlash on them.We have to expect and get less than tamilnadu.(don’t forget that tamilnadu is tamil country while the north and east is disputed territory due to the chola invasions.We all know what happened to anuradhapura)

            There is no recorded history anywhere in the island of Sinhalese being forced to leave their homes and lands in the north and east and moving to the south and Tamils from South India coming and occupying them. Even the Mahavamsa constantly refers to the north and east of the island as Tamil lands. This story of Cholas invading and creating Tamil lands in the north and east of the island , after ethically cleansing Sinhalese is a recent story created by Sinhalese extremist to justify denying, the indigenous native Tamils from the NE their just rights by falsely portray them as immigrants who do not deserve anything and the ethnic cleansing of their lands by the Sinhalese and Muslims is now justified. The North and East of the island were already Tamil lands and the Chola invasions only strengthened this Tamil identity, culture and the Saivaite religion in these lands, but did not create them. During these invasions immigrants from the Chola country would have settled but they did not create the Eelam Tamils , they settled and got assimilated into the already existing Eelam Tamil nation. Sri Lankan Tamils only share a 17% DNA with Indian Tamils but share a 55% DNA with original Sinhalese( the indigenous Dravidian Naga/Yakka) and 28% DNA with the Bengali , proving there is very little South Indian contribution in their DNA . They are largely evolved from the local Tamil speaking Naga tribes and from immigrants from NE India, with later addition from the Cholas/Pandians. Proper Sri Lankan Tamil dialects are far closer to old Tamil , proving they have been a relatively isolated people , evolved in isolation with hardly any contact with the Tamil country in the Indian mainland. The Chola invasions were more concentrated in the Sinhalese south ., where they even established Polonarruwa and created many of the ancient monuments.

              that is why i say north and east is disputed territory.The chola invasions and magha invasion from kalinga creates disputes and as a result it is a grey area,whereas tamilnadu is clearly black and white.So because we have had control and kingdoms for about 700 years before portueguese and dutch took it away,we can expect substantial devolution to manage our affairs but it can’t be to the extent of quasi federalism that tamilnadu enjoys as they vis a vis us have been undisputed tamil territory for more than 5000 years.and separate chola,chera,pandya countries and empires.If tamilnadu is satisfied with quasi federalism(correct me if i am wrong,i think it is quasi,not full federalism)then we should be satisfied with 13th amendment with land and police powers and a plus to that in the form of a senate.Lets just ask for that and move on in life.

        “That’s so stupid, why would such a small country with such a large majority need federalism?”

        It is because a tiny minority of Sinhala/Buddhist fascists should not be allowed to dictate the rest of the people such as when to use the toilets, how many times they use the toilets, how to wash their bum, how to make love, …………………

        “What we should concentrate on now is the assimilation of tamils and muslims into the Sinhalese majority not separating them even more.”

        Kallthonie Tamils have already been assimilated into and have become Sinhala/Buddhists and now being transformed into the Master Race, Aryan Sinhala/Buddhist Fascists. Probably the Tamil descendants Radala Nayakkas are losing their grip on polity.

        Are you a Tamil descendant of Nayakka or simply part of recent arrival turned noisy Sinhala/Buddhist fascist?

        The truth is Tamils and Sinhalese are the descendants of South India irrespective of their ancestors date of arrival.

You say a tiny minority of Sinhalas should not dictate, you think if you get federal there isn’t going to be a tiny minority who’s going to make you people bend over? the only difference would be these people would opt for another war since most of the idiots asking for federal is from pro-LTTE TNA and would not give up their dream for eelam. Second, the tamils are descendants of south indians, the Sinhalese are mainly descendants of bengalis and other north indian groups while they may have some south indian ancestry from recent immigrations they are not the same as tamils.

        Jayasuriya comrade,

        Sinhalese wanted to assimilate the Tamils from the time TN Tamils came to do Cinnamon peeling. Shore land (low country) Sinhalese, especially the Negombo Tamils who speak Sinhalese and practice Buddhism are the eye witnesses for it. But, even after they all are converted to Sinhala Buddhists, SWRD like Kandyan Radala wanted to split the country into three division and keep the Negombo Tamils separately, not to been as equal with Sinhala Buddhists. That is why the North East Tamil don’t want to live with or be assimilated by the Sinhala Buddhists. They want their land.

    President Gotabaya well aware that it is India who played a greater role in defeating LTTE which is used by Mahinda family for their personal benefits. It is Mahinda Rajapakse who promised to go beyond 13 plus in front of Indian Prime Minister. Gota and Mahinda can cheat poor Sinhalese but they can’t cheat the big powerful nation India. India also offered the same level funds that was equivalent to American Millennium Fund. Rajapakse family can’t play game with India anymore as they did before. What are they going to tell to those who cried a lot about selling Srilanka to America? What is the agreement they made with India to receive $400 million dollars?

    I don’t believe that GoRa is in a mood to share power with Tamils & Muslims. Therefore, my guess is that he will pursue a policy of forcing minorities into guessing game so that he can make them angry at election times in order to win solely with S/B votes. Under such a scheme, he will look at PC elections in two ways: 1. Hold elections right after the general election just to appease Modi but do nothing more regarding the devolution of power or; 2. keep postponing elections in order to give the priority to cut spending while proposing more development programs to N & E. Let’s wait & see!

      He might try to drag his feet, but will not succeed for BJP has its own agenda! BJP won a resounding victory in the last Indian Parliamentary elections virtually in all states, but Tamil Nadu! BJP and by extension the Modi govt. will put their maximum ‘effort’ behind getting the Tamil issue in Sri Lanka resolved successfully to give them the edge by projecting the party as the sole saviours of Tamils, giving little or no room for either the Congress or the Dravadian parties to take any credit.

      The significance of the location of Tamil Nadu for Modi’s summit with Xi Jinping is no coincidence, it had two underpinning objectives one local and the other being external. Locally BJP was signalling that they are seriously committed to do everything to break the hold of Dravidian politics in Tamil Nadu, whilst externally signalling to both China and Sri Lanka that India is in no mood to compromise the security of Indian Ocean at its southern tip. One can be sure that this message has been conveyed to Sri Lanka loud and clear in no uncertain terms. Hence, GR will paint himself into a corner if he tries to evade his commitments vis a vis Tamil issue or even if he tried to play China against India, for BJP is no congress and Modi is not Manmohan Singh to be taken lightly!

        If Gota thinks that he can take BJP for a ride like how Mahinda took Congress for a ride, then he is sadly mistaken. He never opened his mouth in India when Modi told him to implement the 13th amendment, but after coming back he says he cannot implement it in full because Sinhalese are against it. He says to judge him after five years how he would usher peace. If he thinks that he can make Tamils to forget their self respect and be satisfied by the crumbs thrown to them by him, then he is again sadly mistaken. One way he can try to placate India and make them forget about Tamil issue is to get China completely out of Sri Lanka, which is a near impossibility. He told in India that he will re-negotiate the lease with China in order to please them, but that could be a lie as he knows that if he antagonizes China he will ousted. So he is in a soup and with not being able to sign MCC accord with USA, he is going to lead the country further down from the current precarious financial position. BJP has definite plans to keep Sri Lanka as a vassal state and will carry it out by all means, whatever opposition that may arise from Sri Lanka or abroad.

    Modi just wants to be seen as standing up for Tamil rights.

    But he is not really interested in devolving power for the Tamils here ( he is a farsi) because that will create problems for him in South India. Note that he arrested that kallathoni Vaiko trying to protest against Gota in Delhi.
    /
    The need is to repeal S13 because that produced nothing for the Tamils except bringing Colombo elite like Viswalingam to power. Nationally the provincial councils are eating up so much money corruptly, it is a curse on the country.

    Saying no to India at this time will have dire consequences for the Sri Lankan government.
    India and the international community have wanted federalism to be implemented in Sri Lanka since the 1980s to my knowledge. During the LTTE era it was not possible as prabhakaran was not cooperative and wanted full separation. This is one reason why in the 2000s, India gave full support to the SL government to defeat the LTTE. Sinhala politicians promised to implement federalism back then when the war was over. But they proved to be liar. I even remember a top UN official publicly call sinhalese politicians as a bunch of liars. Saying he was growing tired of their two faced behaviour.
    India in the past was not 100% serious about what happened in Sri Lanka. But the Chinese have forced India to take action.
    India is currently ruled by a nationalistic and assertive BJP government. And the USA has arrived to back up their plans to drive the chinese out of the Indian ocean region. The USA is also ruled at present by a nationalist who has made it clear that he sees China as a world wide threat to US interests. And he was not afraid to start a trade war with them.
    The chinese have proven that they wont take on the USA and have in the past fled when the USA has stepped forward. Same will happen in Sri Lanka also. So Gota cannot rely on China to protect him this time.
    And if Gota goes ahead and implements federalism, he will be seen as a traitor among the sinhala nationalists who voted for him.

      Hello Jegan,
      Sri Lanka should choose what it is good for Sri Lanka and no other country should impose conditions. We all remember how India trained terrorists (LTTE) because JRJ contemplated allowing USA to use Trincomalee tank farms. Tamils were a mere tool to be used to promote Indian interests. The issue then was that Sri Lanka was seen as pro-West and consequently, a threat to Indian interests.
      The present problem India has is Chinese influence in Sri Lanka. Implications of Indian policy is that Sri Lanka should do what India wants at all times. India chooses to use the Tamil issue again to promote its policy.
      Sri Lanka should resist and remember Tamils are Sri Lankans too!
      It is inconceivable that Tamils would consider Indian interests above those of Sri Lanka.
      The harder India pushes the more Sri Lanka’s should promote Chinese influence in a calibrated manner until India realises that pushing Sri Lanka would be counterproductive.
      USA view that China is a worldwide threat to its interests is not a matter for Sri Lanka, notwithstanding Gota’s close links with the USA.
      We all know what USA did to Iraq, Libya and attempted interference in Syria. We are yet to learn what happened in Bolivia and what will happen to Venezuela.
      American influence is exactly what Sri Lanka does NOT need.

        Sunil Abeyratne, the best solution to prevent India interfering using Tamil problem is to settle the issue according to the aspiration of Tamils to live in dignity and safety. If you do not need American influence, get rid of Chinese Influence. If you think that you can keep India at bay by increasing Chinese influence, you are sadly mistaken. I can assure you that if there be an Indian military intervention in Sri Lanka, China will only make statements and do nothing further. China cannot fight a war with India in the southern front. India is not weak like under congress government when China took chunks of land in Arunachal Pradesh and Kashmir. Recent military defeat of China under BJP government shows that China is restrained in the north. Best thing for Sri Lanka is to cooperate with India and avoid humiliation. Recent invasion of Syria by Turkey is a dangerous precedent. As you cannot fight Turkey there, USA withdrew and Russia made a pact allowing Turkey to invade and set up a safe zone. Similarly India can cite Islamic terrorism being exported from Sri Lanka and carve out a safe zone from Jaffna to Chilaw, 50 kilometers deep.

          Hello Gnana,
          The scenario you have described is perfectly logical in the context of Islamic terrorism, although such an outcome will reflect Indian desperation to disregard the associated international consequences for India.
          History suggests that Tamil population in Jaffna would resist and fight Indian occupation with the assistance of Sinhalese in the South. India is not naive not to know of such an outcome following the IPKF experience.
          A meaningful dialogue to resolve issues around the aspirations of the Tamil speaking people should have happened after the LTTE defeat and it is still not too late.
          Thank you for the response.

    First of all, the 13th amendment is illegal, signed under coercion, a threat to Sri Lanka’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. If india is so concerned about their Tamils and Muslims in Sinhala-Buddhist Sri Lanka, why can’t India let their people return to their homeland Tamil Nadu??????? Tamils and Muslims must fight for their ‘right of return to Tamil Nadu’!!! Cursed Gandhi family inflicted the cursed 13th amendment on Sri Lanka’s constitution and has made Sri Lanka a colony of India. India is the security threat.
    /
    Saharan, Prabakaran, Safi, Badudeen, Hakim, Sali, etc are all ethnic Indians. It’s not a secret that Saharan and Prabakaran got their orders from India. And India should give the $50 million to Tamil Nadu where the birth place of all the problems of Sri Lanka.
    /
    Sri Lanka must not put up with foreign bullies anymore. SL government must flush (repeal) the illegal 13th amendment down that pan, secure Sri Lanka’s borders, stop on arrival visas for south Indians, Maldivians, etc, warn Western embassies and high commissions not to stick their snotty noses in Sri Lanka’s politics, order minorities to integrate with native Sinhalese or face repatriation.
    /
    Also, it’s time idiotic Tamils should know that India or the West couldn’t care less about them. They use Tamils to interfere with Sri Lanka’s politics because they are desperate for a foothold in the island.

    A close Indian Indian buddy who has influential political connections in the right places in New Delhi, reliably informs me that the visit of the Indian External Affairs Minister [ the Indian Foreign Affairs Minister ] rushed in with a curt order to the newly deceptively elected American citizen kallathoni President for him to visit New Delhi if he knows what’s good for him.
    So our war crimp with his tail between his legs and having unstoppable bouts of diarrhea took the first available to New Delhi to pay pooja to the Indian powers to be.
    He then made many a rash promise saying that he will resolve the much willfully delayed promises to resolve the frustrations and issues of the minorities especially to the economically powerful Tamil’s, which has not been fu filled since 1956 when his blue Amude clad blue mongrels created mayhem by stirring up racial riots which sadly left many a Tamil meet his or her maker’s sooner than expected.
    Then to appease the foreigners who were trying valiantly to bring down the scantily attired loin cloth called Amude.
    In fear of their miniature genitals being exposed to one and all, especially the females of their yak clan they signed an agreement which was called the Banda / Chelva pact.
    Then the yellow-clad sexually withheld frustrated Buddhist monks, who were servicing their poor Abitha’s and a few politicians began a protest march from Kandy to Colombo and it was stopped in Imbulgoda before it could reach the due place – Colombo.
    The then racial homosexual Prime Minister was unceremoniously gunned down by his own Buddhist monk and his widow another racist b…h took the mantlepiece and immense hardship was caused to the hapless minorities.

    This is a headline calculated to inflame the Sinhala extreme. The 13th Amendment is a joint SL-India product created after years of study by politically unbiased political and legal experts to meet a particular time in history. It had several authors – to name 2, Prof GL Peiris and Dr Neelan Tiruchelvam. Even the ambitious political CJ later admitted he played mischievous negative politics in irresponsibly negating the Agreement signed by two sovereign governments.

    Gota, to whom I did not vote, is moving in the right direction. In rejecting fancy clothes, the satakaya, excessive security retinue etc. he will win public confidence and acceptance. What is of crucial importance is not whether the country is ruled by Gota, Pohottuwa, SLFP or UNP but that it is ruled to good plan, professionally and successfully so that all communities can benefit. The country must move forward and realise its full potential. For this we need the support of India, USA, China, Japan, the EU and all. From the current signs it looks like Gota is the right man for the right job at the right time. Let’s all forget divisive politics and allow the current regime to go its full term so that the country wins.

      The 13th Amendment is still there alive and present in the Constitution. It has not been abolished or nullified. Despite the efforts of a former CJ to play truant about it a successor lady CJ got into trouble over it by getting impeached by the very PM now holding office when he wore the crown as President in the government he headed previously.
      At the recent meeting in Delhi the Indian PM has told the current SL President in unambiguous terms about the wisdom of implementing the terms of the Indo-Lankan Accord of 1987.
      So let us hope that he conveys that message to the people at home who made it possible for him to become President and in addition keeps up the promise of his sibling who is now the PM who said ‘he would even go beyond the above said 13th Amendment’ ,when he said that he would lead the country successfully for the benefit of all communities even if they did not vote for him in his speech following his election to high office.

        Uthungan,

        Just after Modi reportedly told GR to implement the 13th, see what GR told Suhasini Haider, the Indian TV journalist and daughter of Subramaniam Swamy, in The Hindu. He says the 13th is now part of the constitution and everything is there except for police powers, which he can’t give, but that he can discuss alternatives. He says he can’t go beyond what his majority community is willing to give. He didn’t discuss land powers at all.

          The majority community that GR represents has a congenital problem when it comes to it’s sense of forming a sensible attitude concerning the minorities who have lived together historically in the island with them for many centuries past.
          That situation occurred in 1972 after the island became burdened with a constitution that gave foremost place to Buddhism and every lunar full moon day a holy day.
          That unleashed the loony fascist rabid yellow robed bald heads to cause havoc in the minds of the majority community to have a nervous break down.

            devolution, devolution, devolution for 70 years” with no result. So to expect GR would do anything to help the Tamils and Muslims get their rights, except perhaps some development through people like Devananda and Karuna Amman, would be foolish. The people should prepare for the challenges ahead.

        China is a open prison in all but name, ask any ordinary Chinese and they will tell you if they had the right to freedom of speech, expression, thought or the even the right to choose their political leaders, nothing at all. Just look at what’s happening in Hong Kong, they are several fold richer than any other part of mainland China on a per-capita basis, but they would not compromise of their democratic rights, much to the annoyance of the Chinese communist rulers. Everything from your housing to the size of your family is decided by the communist party. Even the town of Wenlou in the adjacent province of Guangdong, where they have been protesting have learn’t from their HK neighbours that their rights are something they would not like to be run roughshod over. Perhaps, you like the system that treats its citizens like sub-humans, but the right thinking man or woman for that matter would certainly prefer to live freely, and in that regard India is much better than China. Indians would not want such a system of autocratic governance, even if they had to survive on porridge their whole life. Being free, is the right of all beings humans and non humans alike!

    There was lot of expectation from Tamils, who flinched, disappointedly and with empty handed after the election, where they voted historical unification. After 70 years of negotiation with Sinhala masters and 5 year of reconciliation process with the special blessing of IC, the election just completed clearly showed geographical dividing line of the Sinhala and Tamil communities, in North East and Central. Sinhala community knowingly elected the worlds’ most Notorious Crime Family, hoping that family will use their criminal tendencies to protect the country. So the King’s visit to India had spread out a presentiment feeling in the mind of Sinhala community, induced by Sinhala Buddhist fear mongering agents. It appears PM, Modi was sensitives to Tamils’ fears and Sinhalese fears and has responded to both in theirs way as they wanted. He has announced $ 450 M aid package, a $50M especially earmarked for security enhancements. In his speech, he has said, he visited to Lankawe right after his election to show his concern about security matters of Lankawe. By media, we came to know it was India, who first found out of 4/21. Indian government did its own investigation of Ester Sunday too. He says he is determined to keep out the external terrorist elements from India and Lankawe. He is hoping this would make the majority community’s concern, which’s excess was exposed to the whole world by Sinhala Majority overwhelmingly voting for a war monger family, ignoring their own rejection of the family in 2015.

    PM Modi have addressed to Tamil’s concern too. India has been building houses in North East and Central area. It helped to improve the patients’ care in hospitals. Indian embassy has been heavily involved in cultural activities with. (After PMs Cameron & Modi’s visits to North, basically all embassies have been showing some interests in North East’s cultural activities. But India has been doing it from IPKF time. ) Many times, Modi has expressed his expectation on honest reconciliation and real implementation of 13A, not box ticking.

  • 4

    PM Manmohan Singh has been asking Lankawe to go beyond 13A. He had received promises from Royal Family of 13+. Royal Family is now back again. Modi was known for his position of Indian States’ need more power from Central government. He understands the 13A is not power devolution anything more than the provincial administration arrangements the British government used. In both, a GA or a governor is the chief, no one elected. So his intention of asking to implement 13A is about meaningful power devolution, like Indian states.

    Even after UN investigated of its failure in 2009 & accepted its injustice to Tamils, IC continues to deny the justice due for Tamils for the last 70 years. Tamils remaining as world’s worst affected underdog. Unlike the King demanding from Tamils, continuous oppression is not anything to forgive and freedom is not something to forget.

    After the physiological needs, freedom is the first psychological element human mind seeks for peaceful life. Mr. Modi knows with what virulence Indian Community supported Gandhi and Nethaji on their fights for freedom. Tamil have fallen behind 70 years for Indian community. But all these years they have not had their hands tied up and watching. Their first leader, Eelaththu Gandhi, SJV conducted his struggles for 30 years. Then Leader Pirapaharan followed it for 30 years on Nethaji’s way. But this cancerous problem is still continuing to haunt Tamils. After visibly explosive election results, India’s attempt to address both communities’ fears through one channel is telling the Indian policies need overhauling to solve Sri Lankan turmoil and put the Indian ocean zone in rest. The lack of politically active diaspora community in India may leave the Indian think tanks short of ability to visualize the full impact of the Lankawe’s communal disharmony. India’s failure to solve Tamils’ problem has the potential to make the zone not just a cold war area of the far and beyond super powers, but a hotbed for nuclear testing ground for many countries.

    13th amendment is the solution for NATIONAL QUESTION of Tamil politicians. Implement the delimitation process FIRST -past voting system and change the 15th amendment. Make the National list appointment very strict and not to appointed defeated and all the jail birds who supported corrupt politicians. Tamil and muslim people wants to live and not Political solutions. IF their living conditions are better they will not like politics.

      Even before the ink on the Press Statement of Modi had the time to dry, GR told The Hindu that the Police powers granted to the Provincial government in 13A will never be permitted. He did so on Indian soil. Any guess if Modi will lick his wounds or issue another Press Statement.

        It is weak leaders like those of congress party put out joint statements. In the practice of BJP it is the sole statement which other party has to obey. Fact that Gota did not say that in front of Modi, and only later is for Sinhala consumption. Gota knows that he cannot play the fool with Modi. Did you hear that in the election manifesto of British conservative party, it proposes for a two state solution for Sri Lanka.

    Wonder how many Square Kilometers Modi’s mates will put in in fine print , when Nanadsena signs the Papers for this Hindian USD 400 Million?..

    I thought Modi annexed half of Kashmir, which had been independent since Prince Charle’s Uncles time.
    Surely Modi can’t now ask Nandasena to give one third of our Land for just two minor Ethnic Communities who do not make up even 20 % of the inhabitant population.
    -.
    Most of our 7 Million who elected Nandasena weren’t even born when the Hindians forced their Separation Plan down the throats of a hapless Government, which had been hammered to the ground by Tamil Terrorists who were trained and armed in Thamil Nadu by the Hindians themselves.

    I know it is the Silly Season for Granting Wishes.

    But Nandsena must think about those 7 Million Voters first.
    And and tell Modi that he has to run it past the 7 Million whether it is OK to fulfill Modi’s wish to give Vellala Party Freehold Deeds and the Police powers to control One third of their Land Mass. ,

      “I thought Modi annexed half of Kashmir, which had been independent since Prince Charle’s Uncles time.”

      Can you also discuss the Pakistan occupied Kashmir?
      Is it too embarrassing to upset Sri Lanka’s all weather friend?

      “Surely Modi can’t now ask Nandasena to give one third of our Land for just two minor Ethnic Communities who do not make up even 20 % of the inhabitant population.”

      Modi is not asking Gota, in fact he is telling Nandasena to do the right thing.
      By the way as far as the Hindians are concerned Sri Lanka is the Sinhala state of Hinida. FULL STOP. Please check Gota’s tail.

      I know you are eternally grateful to the psychopath VP for getting rid of Hindian from this island when the poor Sri Lankan security forces were hiding behind VP’s fat bum and their women folks.

      “And and tell Modi that he has to run it past the 7 Million whether it is OK to fulfill Modi’s wish to give Vellala Party Freehold Deeds and the Police powers to control One third of their Land Mass. ,”

      Think twice, as it would be very costly to refuse Modi’s wishes, given the history of Hindian destabilisation of this island between 1983 and 2015. Hindians will catch Gota and his brother by their b***s, drag both of them all the way to get what Modi wants.

      Its difficult for you to learn from past lessons as you believe your little island has become mightier than the rest of the world put together. Good luck.-

      The sweetener for the the clan is not $400 million however its actually $550 millions.

      It is not in this little man’s purview. Its for the Hindians at Sultanate of Delhi to decide.

      “Indians are very keen to make Sri Lanka another Indian state.”

      As far as the Hindians are concerned Sri Lanka is already the Sinhala State of Hindia part of its Akhand Bharat.

      “They may be our big brother but we don’t want them to meddle in our affairs.”

      If Sri Lanka treats all its people well there is no excuse for neighbours and strangers to grope your women folks.

          You will come around to accept it kicking and screaming.
          You are still stuck in the racist Anagarika Homeless Dharmapala era. It will probably take another hundred or so years for you to understand how globalisation is bringing people closer and how diffusion of technology is making great changes to human thinking.

          With stupid people like you and 52.25% of the voting public your racist war criminal can build a ditch large enough to crash into, not transform this island in to a dreamland, Singapore. It takes a lot of courage to shed his racist, bigoted views and own up his part in war crimes, necessary condition for a visionary.

          BTW, what did Gota do to Modi to receive $550 million?
          Did Gota agree to Modi’s any other indecent proposals? Remember Modi is not sharing his bed with any other human being.

    In the mean time Sinhalese Buddhist Fascists and Buddhist monks have arrived in the Mullaitheevu area , with a huge 33 foot Budda statue to be installed at the, ancient Neeravadi Pillayar Hindu temple. Where the cancerous body of an extremist Sinhalese Buddhist monk was recently cremated on the premises of the temple , creating a sacrilege. This was done openly with the support of the local Sinhalese Police and armed forces , contravening court orders . Now a huge 33 foot Buddha statue has been brought to Muallaitheevu by Sinhalese extremists and Buddhis monks to be erected on the premises of this ancient historical Hindu temple . Just after the Goat’s victory. This again is being done in contravention to court orders. Most probably the Sinhalese armed forces and the police will be there again to assist these Sinhalese Buddhist Fascists to erect this huge Buddah statue , inside the Hindu temple. The Goat like all former Sinhalese leaders and his elder brother is just going around the world including India and taking them for a ride , regarding reconciliation , federalism for the island’s Tamils . He has not intention. He was elected on the racism ticket by most Sinhalese including many Sinhalese Christians( shame on them) . His primary duty is towards these Sinhalese racists . Now they have been embolden by his victory. 90% of these so called Sinhalese Catholics were all Tamil Catholics a generation or two ago and now playing the racist card.

      The erecting of Biddha statues all over the place is not what Buddha wanted.

      this is not interference in internal affairs.This is implementation of agreement between two countries.Unless india agrees to scrap the 13th amendment,it has to be fully implemented.same goes for the hambantota harbour to be given back to sri lanka.If china does not agree nothing can be done.Agreements cant be made and broken whenever we feel like doing so.Therefore before signing we have to be careful.

      Way back in the 1950s, Jawaharlal Nehru did warn S W R D Banda that this island can’t afford to have a separate foreign policy from that of Hindia. Further more as far as the Hindians are concerned Sri Lanka is a Sinhala state of Hindia, part of Akhand Bharat. Full stop.

      Hindians financed MR’s election campaign in 2005, part of it was paid to VP for his services to democracy. Hindians also financed the war to the tune of at least
      $1.15 billions.

    Tamils issues is that key factor of “Homeland for Tamil speaking race in World” That crucial issue is not yet resolved by Republic of India…even under the BJP rule in India it has ignored totally. Eventually that BJP wanted that passed into People of Sri lanakn and its Repbulic by base on 1987 Indo -Sri Lanka accord. This is unfair for Tamils race who are living in Indian Republic as well as Tamils living outside Tamil Nadu . !
    The Tamil-Race of nationalism and Chauvinist in Tamil Nadu which that claim
    and blame for “Homeland” instead India,but in land of island of Sri Lanka.
    The Primer India of Modi of BJP said that “Tamils right to Homeland that claim has refereed to 13th Amendment of constitution of Sri Lanka.
    Undoubtedly ,Indian big-power stick has been imposed by 13 Amendment of invaded of that IPKF troops in 1987 July by INC of Rajiva Gandi .
    Meanwhile Tamils living in Island seek greater portion lands for that few millions of Tamil living in Sri lank for their “homeland. That is an undeniably quite an impossible of “as illegal Tamil immigration in Sri Lanka.
    In any case that BJP denied Tamil Nadu is Tamil homeland for Tamil race,there will be dilemma of “Tamils Homeland issue ?
    Sri lanka is small Island- country that land cannot accommodated 75 millions of Tamils living in Tamil Nadu India. Not only that Tamils are seeking Tamil speaking people in world that wanted their homeland in our Island.
    Whole Tamils speaking in the world has to an Occupation this land of Lanka? That is quite obvious 13 demand from TNA+ LTTE, Tamil Diaspora and Tamil other outfits wanted eliminated Sinhalese -Buddhist nationals for Island once and for all.

    But sorry to say by that political influence of MCC and SOFA of USA, UK, EU and Swiss while UNP leadership of Sajith and Ranil agreed for that on 2019 Nov 16 Presidential election.

      When did the island become the sole preserve of the Sinhalese ? From 1948 ? It was never an exclusive Sinhalese Buddhist land. Large parts of the island from ancient times have been Tamil and Hindu and ruled by Tamil rulers. The Sinhalese harldy never had any peep or sway into these Tamil lands. On the contrary the Tamils were ruling the Sinhalese for centuries and many of the so called Sinhalese royal dynasties have a South Indian Tamil origin. The last being the South Indian Telugu origin Tamil speaking Madurai Nayakars from South India. Even your famous king from Kotte Alakeswara was a Tamil. The Tamil and Sinhalese parts of the island have always been separate lands with their own kings and rulers , even when parts of the Tamil east came under the loose rule of the Tamil/Sinhalese kings of Kandy they were still ruled locally by the Tamil Vannimai chiefs and to these Tamils considered the king of Kandy as a Tamil Hindu. So can you call the island exclusive Sinhalese Buddhist land? It was the British who for their own administrative convenience merged the Tamil and Sinhalese parts of the island in 1833 to create a new colony called Ceylon and made the Sinhalese who until then were confined to the Southern parts of the island , a majority in the whole island and the Eelam Tamil nation that was a 100% majority in their own lands now a minority. The Dutch and Portuguese ruled the Tamil and Sinhalese parts as they found as two separate colonies. The British in 1948 gave the country on a platter to the Sinhalese with no adequate safe guards for the Tamils their lands, language culture employment etc . They had no right to have done this . They created this mess. The Sinhalese indigenous!

      And why not? Because it was a part of the Indo-Lanka Accord (forced on Sri Lanka at gunpoint). According to this agreement India was to eradicate the LTTE and SL was to implement 13A. India did not keep to their side of the agreement so…
      As far as Federalism is concerned, The Belgian/Swiss idea of Federalism is not the same as the Tamil idea.
