SL departure from 30/1 could step up external intervention as blessing in disguise: Mavai

[TamilNet, Thursday, 20 February 2020, 23:22 GMT]
If the SL government opts to withdraw from its commitments to the co-sponsored UNHRC Resolution 30/1, such a move will end up escalating the external interference in the island, said Tamil parliamentarian Mavai Senathirajah during his address to the SL Parliament on Thursday. The international intervention was needed to resolve the national question, which is being ignored by the Sinhala politicians, both ruling and the opposition, even after experiencing high financial burden during the three decades of war, he said. While registering ITAK's strong objections to SL Government's reported discourse towards the closure of co-sponsored commitments to the Geneva resolution, the ITAK Leader said the external interference would continue to prevail until the root cause, the ethnic conflict, is resolved.

The national question has remained unresolved for seventy years with the consequence of thirty years of war escalating the financial burden and hampering the development in the island, Mr Senathiraja said.

Foreign debt has become a significant problem. SL Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, who recently visited India was seeking a moratorium on loans.

The main reason for this burden is the failure of the successive governments to resolve the national question.

But, no one wants to talk about it, neither the rulers or those in the opposition, Mr Senathirajah said adding that the Sinhala leaders were not prepared to resolve the national question.

SL President Gotabaya Rajapaksa is not even prepared to admit that there is an ethnic conflict. The trend was witnessed during his election campaign, swearing-in ceremony and in his maiden speech to the SL Parliament on 03rd January, ITAK parliamentarian said.

The ITAK is the main constituent party in the Tamil National Alliance (TNA).

Forty-seven countries backed the UNHRC Resolution, and the cost of reneging on it would only step up external intervention. Such intervention is needed to resolve the underlying ethnic conflict, he said.
