Shivaji manifesto demands IC make Colombo to provide autonomy to Tamils

[TamilNet, Thursday, 14 November 2019, 23:48 GMT]
The Tamil people call upon the International Community (IC) to make the SL State grant autonomy to them in the merged North-East. If the SL State fails to offer Tamils their legitimate rights within the first one year of the new term of the incoming SL President, the IC and the UN should conduct a UN-monitored referendum to determine the political preference of the Tamil people. Furthermore, the IC and the UN should launch international investigations on the crimes committed in the island against the Tamil people, including the genocide, says M.K. Shivajilingam, the Tamil candidate contesting the presidential elections. The Tamil-speaking Muslim people and the Up-country Tamils are entitled to self-determination. They shall be given full autonomy to look after their affairs in their regions, the manifesto released in Trincomalee states.

Seven of the eight Tamil parties have failed to back Mr Shivajilingam as their common candidate.

Shivajilingam is contesting under ‘fish’ symbol.
