Sinhala settlement is being set up in front of the Pulmoddai Military Camp!

 

-Special Correspondent for Global Tamil News- Is the Scheme of Sinhala settlements prevalent even after the regime change?

Sinhala settlement is being set up in front of the Pulmoddai Military Camp!

In Trincomalee, houses are being constructed at the sides of the road in between Pulmoddai town and Thennaimaravadi village with the intention of setting up the Sinhala settlements.

The people of this area demanded the authorities to stop these illegal Sinhala settlements.

Sinhala settlements were already made at the Kokulai which is the border village of Mullaitivu district and Thennamaravadi which is the border village of Trincomalee.

Manalaru which was the native Tamil homeland was completely changed as a Sinhala area with the name of “Welioya”. In the meantime, as the continuation of the setting up the Sinhala settlements, Sinhala settlements are being set up at Pulmoddai area.

Sri Lankan military is engaged in building the houses with the intention of setting up the Sinhala settlements at Pulmoddai which is the border area of north and east. The intention of this Sinhala settlement is to make the Sinhalese domination at the border between north and east, according to the people of this area.

During the Mahinda’s regime, hundreds of houses were built at Manalaru area to where Sinhalese were brought to be settled.  

Meanwhile, Pulmoddai Sinhala settlements clearly indicate that Sinhala settlements are still being set up in a well-orchestrated manner even after the regime change.

In the meantime, lands are still being seized at this area where Buddha statue is being erected.

Will this present government, which came to office because of the voting power of the Tamil people in north and east, stop the Sinhala-Buddhisization?

Or else, will it continue the well-orchestrated Sinhala settlements to oppress the Tamil people at their homeland like what was happened during the Mahinda’s regime?
