Colombo wants Sinhalicised village to be annexed with Vavuniyaa Division

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 21 June 2017, 22:40 GMT]
Kokkachchaan-ku’lam, a traditional Tamil village in Vavuniyaa district, was Sinhalicised into Kala-bogas-wewa and Colonized heavily during the Rajapaksa regime in 2013 and 2014 with an active role by the then SL Governor to North and Namal Rajapaksa, the son of former SL President. This village is now being demographically integrated with Kallik-ku’lam GS division of Vavuniyaa Tamil division. In the meantime, another part of the former Tamil village of Kokkachchaan-ku'lam is being demographically annexed with Kebithigollewa of Anuradhapura district of North Central Province, the civil sources in Vavuniyaa further said.

The latest move also aims to add 400 Sinhala voters to Vavuniyaa Tamil division almost over night. This will enable the Sinhala colonists to seize 2 seats in the civic body creating inroads for further Sinhalaicisation and colonisaton into Vavuniyaa, the Tamil civil sources in Vavuniyaa further said.

Recently, a written instruction has been sent by Colombo's local government ministry to the Divisional Secretariat of Vavuniyaa through the SL Government Agent of Vavuniyaa.

The nearby Vavuniyaa South division has been subjected to heavy Sinhala colonization over the years. It has now become a ‘Sinhala-Only’ division with more than 97% of the population being Sinhala settlers.

The Sinhalacilization is now targeting Vavuniyaa division and two other divisions of Vavuniyaa North and Cheddi-ku’lam division, the sources further said.
