Colombo unleashes dangerous scheme of demographic genocide choking North-East

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 21 March 2018, 22:24 GMT]
The Mahaweli Authority of the occupying State of genocidal Sri Lanka has schemed a new plan to destroy the territorial integrity of the traditional homeland of Eezham Tamils by changing the demography of 13 km long narrow coastal stretch from the south of Nayaa'ru lagoon towards the provincial border with Eastern Province at Kokku'laay in Mullaiththeevu district. The Sinhala colonial governor of Northern Province Reginald Cooray and Thissapura Gunarathna thero the intruding Sinhala extremist Buddhist monk at Kokku'laay have been working closely with the Mahaweli Ministry of SL President Maithiripala Sirisena with the plan to Sinhalicise 7,000 acres of lands along the two sides Mullaiththeevu - Trincomalee highway. It is the most dangerous plan to choke North and East, Tamil civil officials in Karai-thu'raip-pattu division of Mullaiththeevu district told TamilNet on Wednesday.

The Director-General of SL Mahaweli Authority R. Rupasinghe informed the planned acquisition over a phone call to civil officials at District Secretariat at the presence of Mullaiththeevu District Government Agent Mrs Rupavathy Ketheeswaran. SL Governor's Secretary L. Ilangovan was also present at the meeting, the officials said.

The occupying SL Navy, SL Ministry of Fisheries and the Fisheries Department have also been deeply involved in the planning, the sources further said.

276 Sinhala colonist families have encroached into the public and private lands of Eezham Tamils in the 6 GS divisions where around 6,000 Eezham Tamils of 2,000 families reside.

The entire strip being seized is 13 km long, starting from 21st km post of Mullaiththeevu - Trincomalee highway to 34th km post in Kokku'laay.

The SL authorities have not consulted the democratically elected Northern Provincial Council. The Tamil civil officials were shocked to learn that the entire area as coming under the so-called ‘Mahaweli L Development zone’. This in practice means a major Sinhala colony.

Hailing from Polonnaruwa, Mr Sirisena has been implementing a long-term Sinhalicisiation agenda within the so-called System B targeting the East and System L targeting the north of the country of Eezham Tamils.

A section of uprooted Tamil families resettled in the GS divisions of Kokku'laay East, Kokku'laay West, Karunaadduk-kea'ni, Kokkuth-thoduvaay North, Kokkuth-thoduvaay South and Kokkuth-thoduvaay West after 2010.

The Government of India, United Nations Human Settlements Programme (funded by Japan), HUDEC Caritas and SL Red Cross Society have already carried out some housing schemes for resettling Tamils in the 6 GS divisions.

In the meantime, Sinhala fishers from South have encroached in large numbers into Mukaththuvaaram, the mouth of the Kokku'laay lagoon.

They have seized the jetties and fishing Paadus along the entire coast after 2009 (Paadu: 10 feet coastal sea-bed falling within the scope of a draw-net).

The occupying SL Navy, which has two naval detachments within the coastal area coming under the occupation scheme, has been thoroughly backing the Sinhala colonists so far. The occupying SL Army also has a military base for its 593 Brigade at 20th km post. The occupying colonists have been hostile towards the native Tamil fishermen with the backing of the Sinhala Army, Navy and the SL police.

The extremist Sinhala Buddhist monk is planning to link Nayaa'ru Rajamaha Vihare and the controversial Vihare establishment, which he is constructing at Kokku'laay with already Sinhalicised Ma'nal-aa'ru (Weli-oya), a Sinhala-only division carved out in the Mullaiththeevu district.

The division has now wedged the contiguity between the Tamil districts Vavuniyaa in the Northern Province and Trincomalee in the Eastern Province, while it established contiguity with the Sinhala district Anuradhapura in the North Central Province.


Weli-oya is situated 25 km west of Kokku'laay.

The 6 GS divisions are going to be populated by Sinhala colonists under Mahaweli L Scheme.

The Mahaweli authority has named the colony in Sinhala as Mayapura, the sources further said.
