With unchecked militarisation, North will end up like East in ten years: CM

[TamilNet, Friday, 04 May 2018, 20:48 GMT]
If militarisation is allowed to proceed unchecked at the current phase, the entire Northern Province will be demographically transformed [Sinhala colonisation] like the Eastern Province, warned the Chief Minister of Northern Provincial Council Justice C.V. Wigneswaran after returning to Jaffna from a trip to South India. In a fact-packed Q&A media release to Tamil media on Friday, the chief minister said Tamils do not need to be afraid as they were during the times of war in demanding demilitarisation of North.

We must tell the government and the military without any hesitation the implications of the militarisation, he said.

He also accused the Colombo Establishment of providing distorted statistics on the extent of lands seized by the SL military.

His statement goes on listing all kinds of SL military corporatism and exploitation as well as the occupation of lands taking place under various covert programmes.
