Sri Lankan Governments Have Cheated India Many A Time

By C.V. Wigneswaran

Justice C.V. Wigneswaran MP

Someone asked me: What have you to say regarding the Cabinet decision to not grant the Colombo Eastern Container Terminal to India?

My response was: What I have been warning earlier has come to pass. It is no secret that successive Sri Lankan Governments have cheated India many a time. This is another example. I expected this to happen after the Geneva sittings. I mentioned this in an interview with the media a few weeks ago. But it has happened slightly earlier. 

There is news that the Sri Lankan Government wishes to lease out three of the Islands close to Jaffna to a Chinese Organization to start certain projects to generate Electricity. This is a serious matter.

It is high time India identified the Tamils of the North East of Sri Lanka as their dependable friends and changed their present political stance making sure that the Tamil speaking in the North and East were granted the right to govern themselves while ensuring their safety. If the Southern Block of India is to be safe, India must ensure  self-determination for the Tamils of the North and East of Sri Lanka. It is appropriate for India to take the leadership to ensure a Referendum in the North and East to be conducted by the International Community so that the Tamil speaking people would decide their political future.

What happened to the Eastern Terminal will sure happen to the 13th Amendment soon. India must realize that any solution to the ethnic problem within a Unitary State of Government is bound to fail. 

In 1987 during discussions preceding the Indo-Lanka Agreement there was speculation that India preferred the same rights given to their Regional States be given to the Provinces in Sri Lanka. But JR Jayewardene tricked the Indians and brought out a toothless Thirteenth Amendment which gave very little powers to the periphery. After him President R. Premadasa went a step further and pulled out the Government Agents, Divisional Secretaries and Grama Sevakas from under the Provincial Administration and brought them under the Centre. Even the meagre Land and Police powers given under the Thirteenth Amendment have been denied to the Provinces up to date by successive Sinhala majority Governments.

The Sinhalese are generally adepts at giving ropes meaning giving false hopes. They would be subservient until they get their things done. Once done they will take high ground. India must realize this. Unless India gains the goodwill of the Tamils of the North and East both will suffer in the long run!

        Yes you are another SJ love Chingkalla racists and Thulluka Islamic opportunists and extremists. SJ is a China loving self hating Thamizh who has his own agenda. That is why he picks on Thamizh and runs behind Chingkallams and Thullukans . You are another opportunist and a turncoat, just like your Koppan and want petty revenge on the TNA and the rest of Thamizh for your turncoat Koppa’s untimely death. Just say that was his sacrifice to send you to Britain for your higher studies. Something that was denied to other Thamizh by a Thullukan and Chingkallams.

    After chasing Sinhalayo from North and East this guy want to have a referendum in North and East. North East is the land of Sinhalayo occupied by Demalu brought to Sinhale by Portuguese and Dutch. Until Brits dragged few Demalu from Yapanaya and settled in the East, Demalu were confined to Yapanaya peninsula because they were scared of malaria. After Independence brave Sinhalayo went and cleared the jungle and developed that area. Now some Demalu say Sinhalayo colonized Tamil land. BS!
    Best thing is to hold a referendum at national level on 13th Amendment and erase Provincial boundaries drawn by Brits for their administrative purposes from the map of Sinhale/Sri Lanka .

      Eagle,
      “After chasing Sinhalayo from North and E”…..”After Independence brave Sinhalayo went and cleared the jungle”
      So Sinhalayo who were brave enough to fight Malaria were afraid of Wiggy’s beard? The sad story of Sinhalayo.

      There is no history recorded anywhere that Chingkallams were chased away from the North and East and Thamizh from South India then came and occupied these lands. Even your Mahavamsam fable states many times , that the lands north of Anuradhapura and to the East were all Thamizh lands. Everything there is Thamizh and not Chingkallam . Hindu or Buddhist. Now Chingkallams , especially the recently converted immigrant South Indian varieties , who now make up half the present day Chingkallams, are making up fairy tales and chasing Thamizh from the North and East occupying their lands and killing Thamizh fishermen from India . Funny these Thamizh fishermen from India are the ancestors of the Chingkalla Karawe, many of them in Navy and armed forces, now killing their second and third cousins from Thamizh Nadu.

      Why not have a referendum outside the north and east too for a Sinhala Only nation. I’m sure 80% will say yes. That is the solution. Tit for tat.

      I know nothing about chasing the Sinhalese but after having killed off all the decent in North and East they want a separate North and East referendum away from the rest of the Sri Lankans? Interesting indeed.

      Did they call for the same in 1987 when the 13 th was implemented be it North and East or be ot Nation wide??

      This defines this misery called FP/TULF/TNA….an undemocratic entity/outfit working for foreign government sacrificed our children and had a ride on them…then one group would not listen then they sided with the GOSL and spent time undermining them/identifying them to the Indians and the GOSL…..now the LTTE not operating they have gone back to their old mischief making at the expense of whoever left to live…can you blame the GOSL…we were exhausted and am sure GOSL too is exhausted dealing with this outfit?? UN does not know the history of this outfits the biggest joke in town.

    It is the purpose of government to outsmart its enemies and safeguard its citizens. Sinhalese don’t have any friends, unless you count the equally hapless Burmese. And maybe, the Japanese. Indians are like jews. Parasites. Sri Lanka owns Indians nothing, and Indians owns Sinhalese nothing. We defeated the Portuguese, Dutch and British on our own. We don’t need nobody help.

      Another Mahavamsa fairy tale in the making. You defeated the Portuguese , the Dutch and the British on your own? When? The coastal Chingkalla kingdom surrendered to the Portuguese and then helped the Portuguese to capture the Thamizh Jaffna kingdom and destroy over 500 Hindu temples in the north and east, including the ancient Thirukeetheswaran and Thirukoneswaram temple the king’s palace , Saraswathie Mahal. Just like in ancient times the so called Chingkalla monarchs inviting one South Indian kingdom or the other to intervene and then portraying these as invasions. The Chingkallams them invited the Dutch to chase out the Portuguese and then the British to chase out the Dutch and
      even betrayed the last Thamizh king of Kandy and his court to the British as they , were Thamizh. You never chased the British out. On the contrary the Chingkalla elite and upper classes were fawning to the British. The Ratwattes , the Bandaranaickes, Senanayakes and many others. This is why the British favoured them and gave everything to them when they left. They only used the Thamizh and left them in the lurch when they left. You only got independence from the British because the Indian’s who fought hard for independence got independence , so the British leaving the region automatically gave it to Ceylon. Chingkallams are very good at lying and twisting history .

      Demalu to be replaced.by TNA/FP please. The Trump equivalent.

      If you want to the trails we conducted for the “FP Tamil crime against tamils since 1970-1977-1981 please watch the Senate Hearing for the Trump impeachment then you know how that would have looked.

      The election irregularities for the 1977/1981 election conducted in Jaffna at the gun point of the FP/TULF also watch all the respective Trump investigations by various committees please…the same.

      I think what Trump did is to use the same CIA manual that is applied on banana republics regime change and did it on America instead.SL American Mission boys from Jaffan did the same wherever they were placed during the colonial times……..on behalf of their masters…now India is also changed sides from Russia to US.

    Srilanka and India, both are dishonest to each other and to the Tamils in particular. Both have the same mentality towards the Tamils. India wants to use the Tamil issue only for their benefit to threaten Srilanka . If India was sincere to the Tamils they would have object to the court ruling, that North and east should be separate, despite their agreement to the contrary in 1987, Both appears to be playing a game against the Tamils.. No wonder Prabaharan was was skeptical about India’s sincerity.

      KV,

      You are right. Not just India, but also other countries are the same. Just lip service for Tamils. No action. During the war, all the countries that are against SL at the UNHRC donated or sold weapons to SL to kill Tamils.

      What did India do to their own Tamil leader Jayalalitha? You know. That was done to prevent a broad political alliance from being formed outside the Hindi Belt. It worked.

      Malaysia is no different.

      Tamils are always condemned to live under others. Sad reality.

    The behaviour of Sri Lankan ruling politicians after the introduction of the open economy in Asia and the formation of SAARC in 1985 demonstrate the hatred towards India. When the Indo-Sri Lanka Peace Accord was signed, R.Premadasa opposed it and the result was the assault on Rajiv Gandhi by a Naval rating. Moreover the convicted Naval rating was immediately released soon after R.Premadasa assumed power as President. Even Mahinda Rajapaksa protested on the streets when the Indo-Sri Lanka Peace Accord was signed. The behaviour of Sri Lanka leaning towards Pakistan and China several times while being in the SAARC, was a signal that Sri Lanka deceives India. India did everything to satisfy Sri Lanka, but the Sri Lankan ruling politicians showed some hatred towards India forgetting its assistance rendered at crucial times. Sri Lanka never gained independence through a bloody war like India or USA and thus failed to realize the value of independence. But Sri Lanka was keen in creating problems for India – shooting & arresting the Indian fishermen forgetting that Kachchativu was donated by India, allowing Pakistani military planes to re-fuel at Katunayake Airport during Bangladesh war, leaning towards China for trade while being in SAARC, and creating a threat to India’s sovereignty & territorial integrity by leasing its Port to China knowing that China’s Debt Trap Diplomacy will affect Sri Lanka and finally giving three islands in Jaffna.

      Continued : Finally, knowing that Jaffna has three islands and leasing its port to China poses a threat to India’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. There is also an incident where a Sri Lankan was seen waving the Sri Lankan flag during a farmers’ strike which raises some suspicion.. The only way option to India is to transform the North-East Province into an Independent Territory within the Union of India, which means
      Kachchativu will be retrieved automatically. This will enable India to monitor the infiltration of Chinese and Islamic terrorists with the sole aim of protecting India’s vital interests through Tamils.

          Rumble 2021,
          I had to be fair. The Sri Lanka politicians had not realized the value of independence because Sri Lanka never gained independence through a bloody war like India or USA. That is where the problem is. All are selfish and are not the least concerned about others.

          Dear Rumble 2021,
          The Indian Constitution was drafted carefully by Dr.B.R.Ambedkar who was very broad-minded after discussions all sections of the people in India. In Sri Lanka only the ruling politicians drafted the constitution for their personal gains in suppressing the minority communities. As a result Sri Lanka saw three constitution since independence and is expecting the Fourth Constitution. India has never changed its Constitution as it treat it as a sacred living document. This is the difference between the politicians in India and Sri Lanka. That is why it is always better to be as an Independent Territory within the Union of India rather than suffering under the racist rule. For instance the latest incident of excavation of Gurundur Adhi Sivan Iyanar Temple is a case in point. Ashta Thara Lingam is the witness of Pallavar era building designs. When a Shiva Lingam was found while excavating they were trying to twist the story when there is a Kundur Murugan Temple which is aquarius angle of Tamil Nadu and in Eelam’s Gurundur hill Adhi Sivan Iyanar Temple. Gurundur (Early name is Gurundanur) Kundur name is also similar. Buddhism was introduced in Sri Lanka in the 7th century after King Devanampiyatissa and not in the 1st century. Why should they suppress these facts.

            Dear AR

            (1) Respect your case making with some new proposals to consider from your prospective/journey and all that is always welcome in a democratic settings. We the opponents of FP/TULF have always done that even in the 1977 when people spoke we did not spent time undermining their wish…..time was give until the next opportunity in 1981 came about to measure the peoples wishes. The same folly was ready with even with more ammunition to undermine that too in the form of killings. We are where we are?? Yet to be tried.

            (2) I have no issue with India except her involvements in my Country as we all respect “all” for their greatness. In my side I can vouch I am more of an Indian than any Indian I know from my upbringing however my opposition to Indian involvement in my Country is very clear. I would not support anyone do the same to her even now…..we only wish good things on other people.

            (3) Whatever you have in your mind should be put forward to the people…I personally think is a no go solution with all due respect.

            Thank you and keep on sharing and respect always.

              Dear Rumble 2021,
              As far as Sri Lanka & India are concerned, it has to be analyzed within the terms of the UN Charter, UN Declaration of Human Rights and in the SAARC spirit in a situation where there is competition of Supremacy of Power in the Indian Ocean. I have been closely watching the behaviour of Sri Lankan politicians since 1956. The Sri Lankan politicians had been cunning especially since 1956. Moreover, it has been boasting of Non-Alignment, has it really according to that spirit. It was leaning towards China without realizing that Buddhism will be destroyed by China. The best option is that India should annex Sri Lanka as its part and divide into two Pradesh. Every problem will be solved.

              May I know your answer regarding the ‘government of the Gotabaya-Mahinda Rajapaksa-led Rajapaksa family, which came to power swearing not to sell the country, has made all arrangements to sell 21 state-owned tea estates to China.
              The Ceylon Tea Board has signed an agreement with a Starchina International Trade Company Limited in China and China will buy 4 million kilos of local tea at market price for a period of 15 years. But today there is a news item that 21 tea estates owned by the Government of Sri Lanka are to be handed over to China. It is said that China is working to modernize Sri Lanka’s tea factories by buying tea estates. It is also known that these tea estates would be bought by China (the new name to buy is investment) at an unimaginably high price. It is said that this high amount is enough to pay all the debts in Sri Lanka. When Sri Lanka was recently asked by India to repay a $ 400 million loan, China had already provided $ 1500 million to Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka paid off the debt in two days which made India surprise. Will Sri Lanka be eventually mortgaged to China.

    Referendum is only a Kapok fruit, conceived by TGTE, to pretend that it has too many ideas. Others, who following that is selling them to TGTE. TGTE invited Catalina politicians to support their Referendum call. But those politicians said in TGTE’s meeting the Referendum of their type is not suitable for Tamils. TGTE even have neglected its original moto of “Tamils’ Thirst is Tamil Eelam” to a new one that is “Tamils’ future must be left in Tamils’ hand” (an anti-West call, asking Western governments to leave Tamils alone). Further TGTE didn’t want the campaign done by it, but formed and Independent People Movement (, though led Finance Minister Nimal) to do it. That raises another suspicion that why TGTE is doing all these double faced dances? Then it is covering it up with lot of excuses.
    Back at home, it was taken by Sritharan and sold to the Missing Persons’ Relatives (MPR), because somebody is eyeing that IC is willing to listen to this MPR. So they want to push their product though this group and destroy the MPR’s image for their political opportunism. If IC sees MPR is controlled by political manipulators, the MPR will lose the recognition of IC. Remember, MPS is not a political party to jump into political solution. Some Tamil politicians are doing a serious damage MPR.

    Though Sumanthiran and Sanakian participated in P2P with TNA ID, Colombo Diplomats are still seeing it as organized and conducted by NGO’s, a good sign. So the politicians should leave the MPR to deal themselves with IC.
    India need not to conduct the referendum as Indian-Lankawe accord has recognized that North East as Tamil’s ancestral homeland and the 13th requests to conduct a referendum and merge them under one government. If India is still left with any influence in Lankawe, it should ask Lankawe to conduct the 13A’s referendum, right away. Then conduct the NEPC election too, immediately. By this we can contain the sudden, surprise, rocket fast colonization taking place. What we should request from India is, in March, to lobby Western governments to bring in a resolution to send the Lankawe’s war crime case to UN SC. But it looks like India may oppose that if one comes, to get Lankawe love attention. Even Tamil Nadu Students are not asking India to lead and bring the resolution at UNHRC to send the recommendation to UNSC. They had been leading on nudging the Central Government, in earlier occasions. This time even that is a disappointing trend.

    I don’t see more power left with India to do anything in Lankawe. A clip of a massive fishing boat singing in the sea is in social media. The world watched it as retaliation for FAM Dr. Jeysankar’s visit. Central government is pretending like it has not seen the murder of 4 Tamil fishermen. This is not the first murder by Chitanta governments. About 750 TN Fishermen have died. Indian PMs from Manmohan Singh to Modi did not act. Mr. Modi rushed to send a wishing message to King, while the dead fishermen wives were singing the Opari in their huts. Only a private TN activist has filed a case in India for that. Dr. Jeysankar could not make the Central government to cover the shame. Lankawe has thrown away the $400 M beggar dole India gave to Lankawe. Before his visit, Lankawe Muslims has requested Pakistan PM, Imran Kahn that when he deliver deliver his speech in Lankawe Parliament, raise it as a point of Muslims Burials. Now, even before Kahn comes here, Old King has said that Muslim bodies will be buried. So, like Muslims, Tamil politicians should take with India what can help Tamils. They should not ask for kapok fruit.

      There is no way, ABSOLUTELY NO WAY, of punishing the Sinhalese without Tamils facing a more severe backlash.
      If you impose economic sanctions Tamils will go hungry before the Sinhalese and even if you drop an atom bomb on Colombo more Tamils will die than the Sinhalese.
      More Tamils live in the Sinhala majority provinces than in the North East.
      .
      Probably you are unaware that Sri Lanka is an island.

        What is your point? Sinhala Buddhists understood those intricacies and is that why they went to disenfranchise Tamils and rob their rights?

        Can you explain me how your point is going to help Tamils to win back their lost rights?
        Or is that similar argument like that UOJ Saddampi and some others saying that America is doing war crime in ME so Sinhala Buddhists must do that for Tamils.

      No. It is the LTTE which compelled India to be reluctant in helping the Tamils. It never participated at the Thimpu Talks and opposed India by joining hands with the idiot R.Premadasa. Moreover, Anton Balasingam’s criticism of G.Parthasarathy is totally unacceptable. The assassination of Rajiv Gandhi was another greatest blunder. The list is long. At the same India cannot be blamed because it had its own problems with its enemies. We have to be practical. LTTE’s arrogant behaviour was the root cause for everything. We cannot easily forget how India threatened Sri Lanka by dropping four parcels from the IAF. One cannot have the cake and eat the cake.

    Sinhala right of self determination must be respected by all.
    Tamil right of self determination must be respected by all.
    Muslim right of self determination must be respected by all.

    If we do that, there won’t be any problem

    Only solution is to divide the island equitably into 3 mono ethnic nations. Until then all this will continue.

    We cannot be united as one nation. Simply impossible. Let’s part ways peacefully and respectfully. Don’t be too greedy. It is greed that breed racism.

      GATAM,
      Demalu and Muslims who live in Sri Lanka are the descendants of Dravidians who are from Hindusthan and sought asylum in Sinhale.
      In case of Muslims, they came as refuges to escape from persecution by Hindus. When they were in Sinhale once again they faced persecution by Portuguese. Sinhala Buddhists saved them and gave them asylum.
      Demalu were brought to Sinhale by colonial rulers, abandoned them in Sinhale and ran away. Kind hearted Sinhala Buddhists gave them asylum and citizenship.
      Asylum seekers have no right to talk about ‘Self Determination’ and breaking the country into pieces. Either they live with Sinhalayo who are the Native people in a ‘Unitary State’ or find some other place where they feel more comfortable. Sinhalayo did not invite them to Sinhale and Sinhalayo are not forcing them to stay in Sinhale/Sri Lanka. They are free to choose.
      The plan to Balkanize Sinhale/Sri Lanka will never materialize.

      The island had only two ancient ethnicities and nations . The Chingkalla nation and an Eezham Thamizh nation. This is what even the Mahavamsa fairy tale record. The colonial powers who ruled the Island , the Portuguese , the Dutch and the British record. This is also what the Banda/ Chelvanayagam pact in 1956 , the
      Dudley /Chelvanaygam pact in 1965 and also the international Indo/Sri Lanka pact signed in1 987 records . The north and east of the island is the ancient land of the Eezham Tamil and the rest of the island the land of the Chingkallams . There is no mention of any Muslim or Islamic homeland anywhere from ancient to recent times. Why? Because they are only recent immigrants from South India , who only arrived here a few centuries ago , most of them during the British era. They are no Arabs or Moors but descended from largely low caste Hindu Thamizh converts with a dash of Arab in few families 5% the most.

        Recent immigrants and refugees who only arrived here to trade or fleeing from persecution have no right to the homeland of other people or self determination. In Britain the Scots the Welsh and the English have this right not South Asian and Caribbean immigrants , however long they lived there . This now Islamic homeland , that too exclusively only on the Thamizh areas and not in Chingkalla areas where most Thullukans live, is now being advocated by Chingkalla racists and Thulluka Islamic extremist deliberately to muddy the waters and to deny the Thamizh justice and steal more of their lands not for the Muslims but for the Chingkallams. These Muslims who advocate this are very pro Chingkallams , if they want an Islamic homeland that never was they can have it in the Chingkalla areas. The Muslims here are ethnically Indian Thamizh and have everyright to live as equals and in dignity amongst the rest of the Thamizh but no Islamic homeland for a recent immigrant community that too arriving as refugees and ethnically Thamizh. Good try Jadam

        You did have a Jaffna Kingdom for about 300 yrs which was mostly restricted to Jaffna Peninsular. Yes, the Tamil invaders ruled even Polonnuaruwa and Anuradhapura. The Britsh ruled the whole country.

    It would be an honor to think that we Sri Lankans cheated India. Far from it India is well aware of what goes on in its own backyard. Before you go trying to turn the current situation into a pretext to get India to push for self rule in the North get some perspective. There are far more pressing issues for India to deal with regard to Sri Lanka. There is absolutely no need for China to start three wind farms on the three largest islands that belong to Sri Lanka in the northern coastal waters. This is nothing but a pretext to set up intelligence gathering oprations as close to India as China could get. China is poking India with a stick to see how far they can go. If you think India does not know this you are very much mistaken. How you can then go link this situation to the Tamil ethnic issue sounds foolish. When China bought the port city and the Shangri La hotel land India countered and got the Rajapakshes kicked out of power. It then got the port city deal reversed and converted into a lease. It also entered into a tripartite deal to lease 49% of the ECT with Japan.

      Svenson,
      You are right. Sri lankan governments have cheated not only India but also Sinhalese. They talk lot about LTTE for nearly 5 decades but they couldn’t arrest or charge not a single LTTE or any other militant group leaders in their courts. They could n’t arrest Pirabaharan or Pottu amman or Soosai or Tamil Chelvan, Nadesan, Kiddu, Mattaya, or any other LTTE leaders. They couldn’t charge even the KP who was arrested in Malysia and brought back to Srilanka. He was the international LTTE head. Even they couldn’t arrest Karuna or Pilliyan who did most of the killing of Sinhala people. They couldn’t arrest Varatharaja perumal who declared Tamil Eelam in this land. The EPDP leader, EPRLF leader, PLOTE leader all are in this island never charged in Srilankan courts or not a single investigation by Police. Why? Because Srilankan leaders are good deal makers. I don’t know how many of the Buddhist Monk leaders are involved or partners in the deal making but that is real. Poor soldiers lost their lives for deal makers.

        It was an excellent summary except the last sentence…they saved more Mother Lankans dying by making all the deals as required as is what the Government’s suppose to do too. We failed toggle credit….npt half empty but half full is how we suppose to see things fora better day?

        Who is in the parliament……..TNA..FP/TELO/EPRLF/PLOTE/X LTTE etc…is also the GOSL way to say let us have future just as they did with JVP…..a very exceptional Government in the world.

      Many days’ thief, (eventually) one day in jail.
      A story: once while a woman was stitching, her needle’s ear broke. She carefully placed it somewhere and brought a new one to finish the job. But she forgot to remove it. Out of the kids playing near to her, one, noticed the incident, secretly snatched the broken needle and took to his mother. She too, without saying a word, took it and kept it carefully somewhere. One day when the judge was condemning the boy, who now was gown up man, to death penalty for his burglaries, asked him what he like as his last wish. He said he had to tell a secret to his mom. Judge allowed. He went near the woman and bit off her ear. She cried. He said you lost only one ear, I am losing my life because of your mistake that you failed to make me understand on the first needle theft that I should not steal. He and she learned it only after they both lost. Time will come for you, be patient, Svenson. Just don’t babel now.

        Thank you for telling a very nice story.
        All the hardcore LTTE Tamil terrorists in jail who might possibly face death sentence should do what that boy did to his mother to racist separatist Malabar Vellala Demala politicians who encourage them to take up arms and say:
        ‘You lost only one ear, I might lose my life because you failed to make me understand that I should not kill innocent Sinhalayo using suicide bombers, claymore bombs, multi-barrel guns and chemical weapons to grab their land to create a separate State using a bogus claim ‘Traditional Homeland.’

    CORRECTION:
    Indian governments have cheated Sri Lanka many a time.
    Under Sirima-Shastri agreement India was supposed to take Tamils back, which they haven’t honored.
    According to Indo-Lanka accord India was supposed to disarm LTTE terrorists. Again, they haven’t honored the accord as well.
    Even with their so called trade agreements, they are cheating gullible Sri Lankan governments big time.

    13th amendment was dead on arrival. 13th amendment is illegal because it was forced on Sri Lanka with coercive tactics and at gunpoint (remember Parippu drop?).

    Definitely some Chines presence is needed in Jaffana and Mannar arears. So India will think again before drop Parippu

      Tony,

      Be careful in using words. It is about Indian population, not about Tamils.
      “The central part of the pact was the granting of Ceylonese citizenship to 300,000 of the Indian population in Sri Lanka, while 525,000 would be repatriated to India.”
      According to Indo-Lanka accord India disarmed LTTE weapons.
      “Militant groups including the LTTE, although initially reluctant, agreed to surrender their arms to the IPKF, which initially oversaw a cease-fire and a modest disarmament of the militant groups.”
      It is the Srilankan government gave LTTE arms to fight Indian army.

      When did you come to know 13th amendment is illegal? Only now?

      It is good that you agree that Srilanka is now ruled by China.

        Just to follow up on my above comment and your correction to Tony….

        Your statement/implying….LTTE reluctantly surrendered the weapons and then to say they carried on fighting because they were armed by the GOSL is totally a misleading statement to make………..you have bridged the gap what led to the first scenario to the next has its own separate history?? you seem to know very little about too.

        Further more GOSL had managed many events since 1970 onwards national/regional/geo political to leave us where we are itself is a miracle and against all the odds. (remember GOSL is not all Sinhalese and nor the Armed forces is not all Sinhalese either).

        Please also remember most of the Tamil representation you have today in the form of TNA (FP/TULF/PLOTE/TELO/EPRLF…) all were sitting in the parliament and supporting/identifying/fighting against the LTTE all the way until the end.

        When you say GOSL they are an elected entity spared their children’s life to save the Nation to remain as one..irrespective all the odds. The future lies here for any takers…as other alternatives would never have saved the Nation on a long run..except if the LTTE saved themselves and joined the GOSL then we would have made up all the lost time in few years to be a first world Nation too.

(This is ADB project to supply electricity to Islets dwllers. Dirty Aanduwa hired China to install the solar cells and connect electricity to bankrupt Grid because of Chinese Nuraicholai.

      India was not legally bound to take back any of those estate workers brought to this Island by the Brits, yet they ill advisedly did Sri Lanka a favour! If anybody had the obligation to take them back it was the Brits, just as they did when Idi Amin expelled the Indians taken to Uganda by the Brits.

      On disarming the LTTE, it was the then Sri Lankan govt of Premadasa which frustrated India in disarming the LTTE, by arming them instead!

      As regards to your point on trade agreement, they are not charitable agreements by any stretch of your imagination, these are agreements entered into by informed willing parties at arms length, at their free will. If you have voluntarily entered into a bad agreement, how on earth can blame rest with the other party to the agreement?

      13th amendment to the constitution was consequent to bilateral agreement entered into by two sovereign states. India did not hold a gun JR’s head to sign it, though he had his naval rating do the despicable thing of assaulting a visiting Head of State!

      On your last point, do not hold your breath!

    Indian Gov’t’s negligence on Sri lanka from Sirima- Chastri Pact up to present cancellation of Colombo Eastern terminal will lead to many problems in future. Sri lanka’s stupid decision of allowing three Islands of the north to China under the pretext of producing Green energy would further aggravate further problems. What would they do if India cancels Kachchative agreement, take back the Island for their safety and security and install a permanent military and navy camp at that southern boarder to watch china’s presence in their waters.? All these Rajapaksas military planing would finally end up in Indo -China war in Palk Strait!

      Pon Lanka will the Indian government ever care . It has never cared for us the Eelam Tamils but only used us as a bargaining chip with the Sinhalese when ever they needed something and then dropped us. Most times even betrayed us and then as usual pandered to Sinhalese racism and xenophobia , incorrectly thinking that the grateful Sinhalese will reward them. The Sinhalese will never reward the Indians with anything but will again and again use them with useless promises , that they never intend to keep and then run to China. If any Eelam Tamil thinks that India will ever help them or side with them , they are mistaken. India will help North Indian Hindus, Pakistani Hindu , Bangladeshi Hindus, Fiji Indians anyone other than a Tamil. This is why they just kept quiet when Sri Lankan navy kept on shooting Tamil Nadu fishermen.

        Look at the reaction when when the Italian navy imprisoned or captured fishermen from Kerala. The Sonia government that was run by anti Tamil Malayali, self hating Tamil Brahmins and North Indians was jumping up and down , despite Sonia herself being of Italian descent. Look at the reaction of the Indian government , even the current BJP , when something minor happens to Hindus in Pakistan or Bangladesh. Even when some piddly little Hindu temple of no importance is destroyed of vandalized there by Muslims. They have declared Pakistani and Bangladeshi Hindus Buddhist and Christians can automatically get asylum in India and become citizens but completely ignored the largely Hindu Eelam Tamil population , that faces the most amount of persecution and structural genocide in the island. As they are in cohorts with the Sri Lankan establishment.

          Look at all the planned destruction of ancient historical Hindu temples in the north and east by this government and covert them to Buddhist places of worship . Armed with fake concocted history. A deliberate attempt to erase the ancient history of the Tamils in the island and impose Sinhalese Buddhist hegemony on the whole island. Not a whimper of protest from the so called Hindu nationalist government from Delhi. These are ancient historic temples that are thousands of years old and not some piddly temple like those found in Pakistan or Bangladesh , that deserve a lot of hue and cry from India. To the Indians only North Indian Hindus matter . Tamil Hindus with their more ancient form of Saivaism do not matter . What happened to the fake Archeologial department that was forcibly trying to convert this ancient Hindu temple to a Buddhist Vihara in Mullaitheevu with fake history and the armed forces help. They only had egg on their faces when only an eight faced ancient Sivalingam belonging to the Pallava era , was found and not any Buddhist relics. This sort of Sivalingam is found even in India , however some Sinhalese medial were falesely try to portray that this lingam is some ancient Buddhist relic belonging to the Anuradhapura era .

            This definitely proves that only the north and east but the entire island was once the land of Siva and the land of the Tamils until Hindu Saiva king Theva Nambiya Theesan son of king Mootha Sivan converted to Buddhism 2300 years ago and the Sinhalese gradually evolved from them from the converted Buddhist Tamil Yakka and some Naga.

    What you say is 100% correct Vigneswaran. The Sinhalese sadly are a bunch of racists , other than a few most of them ,are generally very happy with what happened to the Tamils and what is also now happening to them. They will never acknowledge the truth of what they did to the Tamils or what they are now doing. This is why they vote for these racist war criminal scoundrels . They fully well know what they are doing. Their media both English and Sinhalese completely ignored the civilian Tamils from the north and east ,including the Muslim Tamils marching from the deep south of the east Pootuvil to the extreme north Polikandi to demand justice for the island’s Tamil speaker and to fight for justice for them from the Sinhalese state and armed forces. The Sinhalese elite and politicians had planned this genocide of the island’s Tamils long before independence and took the them Tamil politicians and the largely Colombo based elite for a ride and are now executing what they had planned very efficiently . The may have ruined the country in the process they do not care , the main aim is to destroy the Tamils as a people and will deal with the rest whatever happens. Britain also favoured and helped the Sinhalese by handing power only to them and no protection for the Tamils.

      Yet the Sinhalese keep on lying that the British favoured the Tamils to justify their genocide Even after 70 years of independence they keep on using this excuse and stupid Indian and western journalists who do not do any research keep on repeating this lie and other Sinhalese lies too.
      As for India they will never help the Tamils . They do not care about the Tamils and only use their plight for their benefit to pressure the Sinhalese but otherwise are in hand in glove with the Sinhalese in the Eelam Tamil genocide. The South block is full of anti Tamils , some even call themselves Tamils but think their caste is more important than their Tamil ethnicity. No wonder they are hated by the rest of the Tamils. This is the opposite in Sri Lanka as you observed the number of Hindu priests leading the march for Tamil rights. To these South Block people keeping the Tamils in their place and even destroying them is far more important than India’s strategic interest. Like the Sinhalese their hatred and prejudice blinds them, the Sinhalese know it and take the Indian’s for ride , fully well knowing nothing will happen as many anti Tamils rule the roost there. Damn good for India , serves them right for betraying the island’s Tamils again and again and pandering to Sinhalese racism.

        If India wanted just Tamil rights it would have been achieved long ago. They helped the Sinhalese to destroy the LTTE and also Tamils for petty revenge , kept quiet when the Sinhalese dishonored all the agreements regarding Sec 13a and the demerging of the Tamil North and East . Many even stating that was fine. This was an international agreement. If India had put its foot down all this had happened. Now China is just a few miles from Tamil Nadu and Imran Khan is here enjoying Sinhalese hospitality. Indians will never realize however much they pander to Sinhalese racism , the Sinhalese only use them but are anti Indian to the core and then will run to China. Good.

A Chingkalla soldier tried to murder him in Colombo when he was the Indian PM but he failed miserably. However instead of punishing him and court martialing him , he was considered a hero by the Chingkalams and was honoured and even became a member of parliament , if I am not mistaken under the Rajapakse party ticket . Shows what hypocrites you Chingkallams are.

        stupid, out of depth , using some Thamizh women who was an IPKF rape victim , stating it was revenge for what Rajiv did to the Thamizh , deliberately sending Punjabi Sikh battalions to the Eezham Thamizh North East to kill,murder and rape the Eezham Thamizh population and subjugate them , after he made an agreement with cunning fox racist JR Jayawardene, who outwitted and out smarted stupid Rajiv. Rajiv could have sent Thamizh or other South Indian battalions/troops , who were ethnically and culturally similar to the Eezham Thamizh and would have been sympathetic to them but he deliberately choose not to but sent Sikh Punjabis and other North Indian troops deliberately to create mayhem in the Thamizh areas. The name given to them by the Eezham Thamizh is the not Indian Peace Keeping force but the Indian killing raping and looting force , as they were not here to keep the peace but otherwise.

Further the Sikhs were waiting the take revenge on the Thamizh , just like the way they wanted revenge on Indira Gandhi, his mother, as many of the troops who were sent to the Punjab to quell and put down the Khalistan rebellion and to storm the Golden temple were , Thamizh , the Madras regiments. It was a Thamizh officer who led the operation to kill many of these Khalistan leaders who were hiding inside the temple and recapture it.

        The Sikhs were seething and wanted revenge. So Rajiv and the anti Thamizh in the South Block decided to let them loose on the hapless Eezham Thamizh , who had nothing to with all this , were living in a different land and were fighting their own war against racism and injustice. They dare not and could not do this to the powerful Indian Thamizh from Thamizh Nadu so the hapless Eezham Thamizh , who had no state and no one to fight for them other than the LTTE then , would do , the Sikhs after taking their revenge and blood from some Thamizh even Eezham who had nothing to do with Khalistan war or the Golden temple can return to Mother India to be greeted as bruised war heroes , fully rehabilitated and their lust for revenge against Thamizh now quenched , as long as it was not against the powerful Indian Thamizh and powerful Thamizh Nadu. Imagine if the Punjabi Sikh troops had run riot against the population in Thamizh Nadu or even Kerala or any other Southern State. This was a win win for the Indians and for the Chingkallams. This is why he LTTE and poor rape victim Dhanu who detonated the bomb took their revenge, as they knew Rajiv’s and South Blocks dirty game. It said when MGR angrily questioned Rajiv about the behaviour of these, Sikh troops in Eezham , Rajiv laughed derisively .

    Kallam Paraiyum SJ Thatha . All Indian states have issues with the neighbouring states. Not just Thamizh Nadu. Even the two Telugu speaking states Andhra and Telengana have issues with each other and the various Hindi speaking states in the northern and central parts of India amongst themselves. Trying to just constantly pick on the Thamizh and run them down is your specialty. You get some sort of kick in this. The Sikhs are not that friendly towards the Thamizh , may be certain individuals but not most. Most Punjabis suffer from sort of superiority complex , especially towards Southern Indians. Even other northern Indians do not like them generally . Be they Hindu or Sikh Punjabi. Just because the Bollywood movies constantly portray Hindu Punjabi and not Hindian culture does not mean they are wonderful. I am also posting in context of what happened in the 1980 during the Khalistan rebellion the important part that many Thamizh Madras regiments took part during this era to put this down and their part in storming the Golden temple and finishing the rebellion and the after math of that . The IPKF. Stop Nit picking for the sake of nit picking.
