Colombo, May 14 (newsin.asia): Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has told the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) that he has warned Sri Lankan President Mithripala Sirisena that undue delays in addressing the outstanding issues of the minority Tamils, including the drafting of a suitable constitution to address their political grievances ,will only result in Sri Lanka’s coming under international scrutiny and pressure.

Modi said this in a 15 minute meeting with a TNA delegation led by the Leader of the Opposition in the Sri Lankan Parliament, R.Sampanthan. It was not a scheduled meeting but was arranged at the last moment just before Modi took the flight back home on May 12.

Sampanthan briefed Modi about the outstanding issues such as the release of lands  by the military and delays in the constitution making process. Modi was told that there are divisions among the government’s coalition partners on key issues like the abolition of the Executive Presidency. These issues are delaying the drafting of the new constitution and making the Tamils wonder if  a new  constitution will see the light of day at all.

To this Modi said that he had raised  these issues with Prime Minister Wickremesinghe when the latter visited New Delhi last ,and had mentioned them to the President at the dinner hosted by the latter on May 11.

Modi said that it is important for the TNA itself to be united. India on its part will take up the Tamils’ issues with the Sri Lankan government even as it aids economic development in Sri Lanka, including the Tamil areas in the North and East.

In the normal course, the Indian Prime Minister would have met the TNA before meeting the President. But this time, he did not,because the schedule was very tight given the short stay in the island.

He also did not want to use the visit for political discussions with various parties as it was primarily meant to be linked to a religious-cultural event – the International Vesak Day observances.

Modi also wanted to focus this time on reinforcing links with the Tamils of Indian Origin. He formally opened a hospital for them at Dikoya and addressed a public meeting  at the Norwood estate in the tea plantation district of Nuwara Eliya.

    PM Modi seems to be behind times. Earlier the international pressure was mounted on Sri Lanka by Hilary Clinton and her group since the Tamil Terrorists funded her campaign with lavish contributions, expecting her to win the US Presidency. Same with David Cameron who is supposed to have taken Pds St 400,000 from Tamil Terrorists. Now the situation has changed. Hillary is not in power anymore and neither is David Cameron. At present, Trump does not appear to care to get involved in problems of other countries. He has stated this quite clearly. Very soon the UN may drop the whole mess of unsubstantiated charges against Sri Lanka. If Modi is so concerned why did he refuse Indian citizenship to the so-called “Sri Lankan Tamil refugees”. In addition, if PM Modi removes the caste which is on every birth certificate and gives more rights for the Tamil people in India, they will not be leaving Tamil Nadu in drove to migrate to Sri Lanka and other countries.

    Harvey Perera had written an excellent article which explains the modus operandi of the Tamil Dalits in invading other countries. He had summarized the issue very succinctly in the following paragraph. See: http://www.lankaweb.com/news/items/2015/12/24/it-is-the-sinhalese-who-need-protection-under-the-r2p-of-the-un-from-77-million-tamils-across-the-palk-straits/

    “The whole world was told by the Tamils that they are a minority in Sri Lanka and the majority are discriminating, suppressing, killing and ill-treating the Tamils. On the contrary, they have more rights in Sri Lanka than in Tamil Nadu as they have Free Education and Health Care in Lanka only. None of the States adjoining Tamil Nadu allows Tamil as a National language. However even though there are only about 9% Tamils in Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka has adopted Tamil as a National/Official language. They get free education, free medical care and are free to live in the South among the Sinhalese. What do the Tamils lack in Sri Lanka which the other groups have?

    Most of these Tamils of Sri Lanka were Dalits or Untouchables from South India. In India ‘Untouchability’ is an institutionalized form of slavery. If someone is born to the Untouchable caste (now known as Dalits), they have little hope. Their station in life is fixed. In their birth certificates, they have to state their father’s caste. To escape caste many of them have migrated to other countries – a move which is most likely encouraged by India. They are in Malaysia, Fiji, Mauritius, Madagascar, Australia, Canada, Europe, Sri Lanka, South Africa, etc. and also large numbers in the west after the 1983 orchestrated riots. Sri Lanka is particularly vulnerable to illegal migration since Tamil Nadu is only 12 miles away across the Palk Straits. So by encouraging the emigration of the Dalits from India to Sri Lanka, Tamil leaders hoped to continue their earlier Separatist plans from North India. These earlier Separatist plans were stopped by PM Nehru in 1963 with the Indian Anti-Secessionist Law. Earlier Chief Minister Jayalalitha of Tamil Nadu was part of these plans” If India is not careful the formation of a separate Federal state in Sri Lanka may create a platform for Tamil separatism to break away from Central India.

    This is the main reason as to why the Tamils have created issues in Sri Lanka while in all the other countries they migrated to they have been lying low. They are hoping that by creating an issue where there is none, they can justify the creation of a separate state in Sri Lanka for Tamils, which will empower them to import the millions of Tamil Dalits from India and take over Sri Lanka. This method of exporting their unwanted to other countries is also a way by which India has been slowly invading all the countries mentioned above. In the case of Fiji, which is another small Island, the current percentage of Indians is 51%. Fijians have banned Indians from migrating to their country anymore.”
