The government is doing everything to make Eastern PC ungovernable.


“According to reliable Muslim sources from Akaraipathu, the government has armed about 200 Muslim young men in the East to target those who are opposing the government’s secret stand on the administration of the Eastern Province.”

(November 10, London, Sri Lanka Guardian) According to reliable sources from the Eastern Province, the government is heavily involved in weakening both the Tamil and Muslim communities to extend its age old policy of turning the balance of power to the Sinhalese.

It is claimed that the rift between Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan known as Karuna and the Chief Minister Chandrakanthan alias Pillaiyan are in fact government making to ensure their party TMVP not playing an important role in the east. The internecine conflict between the two is said to be engineered by the government to keep both of them at loggerhead, so that the government machinery could carry on with its mission to proceed with the Sinhala colonisation scheme.

The government is not permitting the talented Tamils to engage in the provincial administration work, fearing they will become impediment to government mission to further dilute the composition of the population. The government decision to put pressure on the able Chief Minister’s Secretary Mr Vigneswaran by not paying his wages confirms to the extent it will go to pressurise the administration to tow its line.

According to reliable Muslim sources from Akaraipathu, the government has armed about 200 Muslim young men in the East to target those who are opposing the government’s secret stand on the administration of the Eastern Province. The sources said Sri Lanka Muslim Congress activists are to be targeted by this armed group to ensure their politics are removed from the east.

The sources also said the government has publicised allocation of lands by public notices. These notices are drafted in such a manner to prevent the Tamils or Muslims getting allocations. It is also claimed JHU’s Champika Ranawake’s supporters and the violent Labour Minister Mervyn Silva are actively involved in violent campaigns to ensure only applications made by the Sinhalese are considered in the allocations.

A leading political figure in the East told us in anonymity that the government mission in the East has a clear agenda. It wants the Eastern Provincial Council administration to fail to extend its underhand work in the province and also wants to tell in India that the Provincial governance is not suitable for the Tamils and the area should come under the direct rule of the government in Colombo.
