News: No strings attached to no-faith vote - TNA
Posted Date: 08/04/2018 (Sunday)
Debunking the conspiracy theory that the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) support for the Prime Minister at last week’s No Confidence vote had hinged on 10 tough conditions, the country’s main Tamil party said their primary objective in voting against the Joint Opposition motion was to ensure the continuity of the Government of National Unity, so that it can meet its 2015 pledges of reform and democratisation. Speaking to the Sunday Observer, TNA Spokesman and Jaffna District Lawmaker, M.A. Sumanthiran said the TNA had merely pointed out three areas where the Government’s attention needed to be focused immediately. These included the return of lands, answers for families of the disappeared, the release of political prisoners and employment issues in the North and the East.

News: Sri Lanka: base for the Asian great game?
Posted Date: 07/04/2018 (Saturday)
A recent talk by the Indian High Commissioner to Sri Lanka, Taranjit Singh Sandhu, received wide media coverage in Colombo, with almost all newspapers picking up one point. “Our aid is not to raid or invade,” he had said. The Indian envoy made the reference to India’s development assistance while delivering a talk on India-Sri Lanka relations in the light of New Delhi’s “neighbourhood-first” policy. In an address that elaborately traced the close historic and cultural ties between the people of the two countries, there was a clear articulation of how India sees itself and its foreign policy, particularly in the neighbourhood, where New Delhi’s preoccupation with China’s growing presence is no secret.
News: Plastic crisis: divert foreign aid to dumpsites in developing countries
Posted Date: 07/04/2018 (Saturday)
Plastic pollution in the oceans is a major problem that is finally getting the attention it deserves, thanks to Blue Planet II. It makes headline news almost every week – and famous figures such as the Pope, Prince Charles, Dame Ellen MacArthur and Sir David Attenborough have all joined the debate. Regular people without such platforms can at least urge governments across the globe to take action. And one idea would be to use the budget for foreign aid.

News: Let the youth not be provoked again
Posted Date: 05/04/2018 (Thursday)
Tomorrow April 5 is the 47th anniversary of the 1971 youth insurrection by the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) and it came in the aftermath or afterglow of the tumultuous parliamentary debate yesterday on the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. Many analysts believe the JVP insurrection was crushed and the youth prophets crucified possibly because it came too early. In 1970 the socialist Sirimavo Bandaranaike government along with the Lanka Sama Samaja Party (LSSP), the Communist Party (CP) and other socialist groups swept to power defeating even the United National Party leader, Dudley Senanayake who had been the Prime Minister for three terms.
