It has been reported as breaking news in Sri Lanka  that several regional politicians of Tamil political parties in the Eastern Province have decided to support the Government of Sri Lanka in the forthcoming election for the Eastern Provincial Council. This is very encouraging and perhaps an important step towards the much sought after reconciliation within Sri lanka which seemed to have run into a few snags due mainly to foreign interference as well as pretentious Tamil representation with their own agendas such as the TNA  albeit though blatantly obvious manoeuvring to whom the concept of a completely united Sri Lanka is simply “a spanner in the works” as it defeats their objectives where some of their cronies still harp in the theme of Eelam to the backdrop of Tamil cacophony of related musings!

 Very significantly towards the cause of reconciliation despite the views of some who may not agree  reportedly 52 regional leaders representing the EPRLF and the PLOTE organization have met Minister Basil Rajapaksa and extended their support to the Government which is indeed an allegiance of  faith in astute widsom on their part. and needs to be graciously recognized perhaps as an all important step towards further fostering the need towards national unity.

The reality of how important this is, becomes pellucid  by the media spokesman of the EPRLF Murugesu Sivagnanam saying that “the relevant decision was taken to prevent the future generation undergoing the difficulties he underwent during his childhood. and what the Tamil National Alliance wants is to create conflicts between the Sinhala and Tamil people and take political advantage out of it.” Truer words have never been spoken by any Tamil political  or other faction in Sri Lanka previously  and need to be acknowledged for the courage and insight it carries with all due acollades as it is an acquiescence that comes from a previously unlikely source.It needs to be made an example of so that others may follow towards the well being of Sri Lanka where the undercurrents of discord often initiated by the likes of the TNA are not the panacea towards a united Sri Lanka under one banner and one leader, particularly the present incumbent who has done so much towards the cause.

It surely  seems to be a bitter pill for the TNA to swallow where the EPRFL has said unequivocally that “in the past the TNA attempted to get their objectives fulfilled through the tiger terrorist organization, and at present it has become their objective to get their aims achieved with the interference of America or India” to which one can safely add on ~ also various other sources such as the UN, the EU and the UK in measured as well as veiled perspective where the objective seems to be more often than not triggered by the never ending attempt by diaspora Tamils and their global henchmen to discredit the Government of Sri Lanka.

One of the most significant statements issued by  the EPRLF representation to date is the acknowledgement that ” the difficulties suffered by the people in the Eastern Province during the last three decades have been alleviated under the leadership of President Mahinda Rajapaksa and what. the Tamil National Alliance is attempting to do is  change the situation and put back the people in a dark era based upon which it is the responsibility of the people to defeat their objectives.” and most importantly towards a show of genuine attempt towards reconciliation, the EPRFL pledging responsibility to provide  better living conditions to the people of their area in collaboration with the Government.

This is an about face from TNA demands that they need devolution of power in a domain they wish to fashion out for themselves in a divided Sri Lanka ( much in the same vein as the LTTE towards what many analysts have concluded as none other than secession where the only difference would be that the means of the LTTE was through direct terrorism and wanton destruction and those of the TNA none other than subterfuge which could eventually lead to unrest and confrontation which needs to be nipped in the bud if any signs of emergence ever presented itself!).

There is also a significance towards the EPRFL throwing their weight behind the GOSL as forthcoming Provincial Council Elections are once again due with the TNA contesting, in particular with an eye towards landing the post of Chief Minister where it seems a foregone conclusion that such an aspiration this time around would be beyond their expectations and inauspicious towards the well being of the region with particular effect on the freedom loving Tamils who have decided to back the Government which in hindsight seems to be fortuitous.

In conclusion it needs to be said that the Eastern Province Tamil political support of the Administration needs to be emulated by all Tamils within Sri Lanka where all ethnicities need to co-exist  side by side and contribute in unanimity towards the progress Sri Lanka has made in the post insurgent environment of today as the Nation makes great advances towards posterity and a better future for all Sri Lankans. This despite the myopic and biased views of some whose opinions have little impact on reality  and regardless of  how loud and visible their dispensations are.

    These political parties have no parliamentary, provincial or LG seats in the east. They are just name board political parties.

    They have their own nasty agenda, especially PLOTE which still supports Tamil Elam. They want Tamils at the top post in the Eastern Province. Government should not be fooled into this. Muslims are the largest ethnic group in the Eastern Province and the chief minister must be a Muslim and certainly not a Tamil. That way Tamils can be made politically irrelevant in the Eastern province unless they totally give up separatism not just for an election.
