News: An appeal to Tamil political leaders on the ‘new constitution’
Posted Date: 21/02/2017 (Tuesday)
I make this appeal to all Tamil political leaders without limiting it to the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) or its affiliates. This includes not only the leaders in the North and the East, but also the rest of the country, though many of my submissions may directly be relevant to the first category. I make this appeal as a citizen of Sri Lanka based on my experience, concerns and respect for the country and its future. The context to make this appeal is the ongoing negotiations within the Steering Committee of the Constitutional Assembly to bring a consensual draft for a new constitution that can be put before the whole of Parliament and then before the people at a Referendum. My basic appeal is for you to moderate your positions, as much as possible, on the questions of ‘unitary state, federalism, merger of the North/East and foremost position to Buddhism,’ among some of the other controversial matters.
News: India will not press for merger of north, east Sri Lankan provinces: Jaishankar
Posted Date: 21/02/2017 (Tuesday)
India will not be pressing Sri Lanka to merge the Northern and Eastern Provinces to form a single Tamil-majority, Tamil-speaking province as envisaged by the India-Sri Lanka Accord of 1987, the Indian Foreign Secretary S.Jaishankar told the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) here on Monday. He was reacting to a demand made by the leader of the Eelam Peoples’ Revolutionary Liberation Front (EPRLF) Suresh Premachandran, that India should honor its promise to keep the North and East united. It had even said that it would not allow a referendum to be held on the issue. When the united province was de-merged in 2006 by a Supreme Court order, India did not protest saying that it was for the Sri Lankan government to appeal against the judgment. India had clearly lost interest in the issue. Its interests lay elsewhere in Sri Lanka.
