The Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL), which has obstructed the work of NGOs in the East, is seeking funds to carry out the agenda of Sinhalicisation in the East, after installing its paramilitary as proxy administration, the TNA MP told media following his meeting with the Norwegian Envoy saying that he conveyed the concerns of the Tamils to the Norwegian Envoy.

"It is of utmost importance to Eezham Tamils that India and the International Community realise the colonial agenda behind Rajapaksa governments development plan for the East," he said.

"Tamil voices are effectively silenced in the areas controlled by the Sri Lanka Army and the paramilitary groups operated by it," he told media.

"In the current context, the voice of Diaspora Tamil community is the only democratic voice we have," he further said.

Jeyanandamoorthy also took part in the Pongku Thamizh rally which was held in Denmark on Saturday.
