India’s confusion over its territories, despite its past failures

As per media reports, the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has received an assurance from India that it will support the ongoing constitutional making process until it could be brought to a successful conclusion.

According to the  said news item,  TNA  Leader Sampanthan has urged  the Indian Foreign Minister to exert pressure to the Government of Sri Lanka to ensure that the promise given to the people and to the International community.

It is a well known fact that the plotters of the 2015 regime change  have entered into  various secret understandings with the  TNA, so-called Tamil Diaspora, the West and India as a part of their political coup.

As a result, we are witnessing  how influential are the  separatist and foreign elements in day to day activities of the current Ranil- Sirisena administration. The bare truth about the current policies of both the UNP and the SLFP is that neither of the leaders of the day represents the interest of any community, but standing for their own self interest of either hanging onto power by hook or crook.

Seeking and receiving assurances from foreigners to resolve internal affairs of the country emerged as never before  after 1977, mainly due to the short-sighted policies adopted by the UNP government.

India became the first country, since independence, to interfere with the internal affairs of Sri Lanka.

The book ‘Assignment Colombo’ written by J. N. Dixit, the former Indian High commissioner to Sri Lanka (1985-1989), outlining his version of the story, tells us how the Indian government went all out to coerce Sri Lanka into submission.

India provided training to separatists to fight against the Sri Lankan security forces. Indian cargo planes invaded Sri Lanka’s air space challenging the sovereignty of our country, and almost forced former president JR Jayawardena (JR) to ‘invite’ Rajiv Gandhi to Sri Lanka to sign the agreement and to accept the Indian Peace Keeping Force (IPKF). Sri Lanka had no alternative but to ‘surrender’ to India’s demands and sign a hurriedly prepared document endorsed by the Tamil separatist groups including the LTTE.

India had to pay a heavy price for its misdeeds later.

India’s above reported most recent assurance to ensure further constitutional reforms to please separatist elements, whom they assisted in the past, after forcing us a certain form of a Federal structure via 13th Amendment to the Constitution 30 years ago  is a clear indication  that India is still in a confusion over its territories, despite its past failures.

    There was no India before the British made it.

    It is the problem for people within and out side India.

    Time to dismantle it.
