“Sri Lanka has not honoured commitments made to India” – TNA Leader
Posted on October 22nd, 2012

The latest in the series of anti-Sri Lanka statements and pronouncements by the Leader of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) is that Sri Lanka has not honoured its commitments made to India and the international community vis-ƒÆ’†’ƒ”š‚ -vis the 13th Amendment, according to media reports on 22 October.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ The whole world knows, although many are not ready to admit, that the 13th Amendment to the constitution of the sovereign nation of Sri Lanka was not something that the Sri Lankan people ever conceived or wanted. It was merely an unnecessary and ill-advised ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”solutionƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ that was thrust upon a hapless Sri Lanka by a bully from a neighbouring country who wanted to throw his weight around. ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ The 13th Amendment did not solve any of the so-called problems that it purported to solve, instead giving rise to provincial councils, and with them their governors and ministers, that poor Sri Lanka could ill afford. Additionally, people of the calibre of the parliamentarians of the TNA have found the 13th Amendment a convenient weapon to vilify Sri Lanka at every possible forum.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Actions agreed upon under duress are not admissible in the courts of law of any civilised country. When the then President of Sri Lanka was forced to sign the Indo-Sri Lanka Pact, there were Indian warships moored just outside Colombo and Rajiv Gandhi had completed his infamous parippu drop over Jaffna, violating Sri LankaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s airspace.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Sri Lanka is not under any obligation whatsoever to honour anything in the 13th Amendment.
Additionally, it does not have to satisfy India or the so-called international community which comprises a handful of affluent Western nations, among whom are those that were in the forefront in plundering the resources of todayƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s poor nations including Sri Lanka for nearly half a millennium.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ The apt repository for the 13th Amendment is a garbage dump. All peace-loving Sri Lankans will no doubt wholeheartedly support the statements attributed to Mr. Gotabhaya Rajapakse wherein he is reported to have said that the 13th Amendment should be scrapped.

    For months on end, contributors to this web site have implored, that the Government should repeal the 13th Ammendment. NOW, THE DEFENCE SECRETARY HAS SUGGESTED THAT IT SHOULD BE REPEALED WITHOUT DELAY. HE HAS RE-ITERATED IT ONCE AGAIN.

    So who is pussy-footing now ?? Why the inordinate delay ?

    As a contributor suggested, there is no necessity for any referendum. It is an utter waste of poor peoples money.

    A bill presented by a Legislator, the 13th Ammendment, can by an act of Parliament be disgorged in a matter of minutes. Then all this TALKING THE TALK WILL BE IRRELEVANT.

    Defence Secretary repeats call for abolition of 13-A

    By Shamindra Ferdinando
    October 21, 2012

    Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa yesterday reiterated that post-war political strategy of Tamil National Alliance (TNA) left him with no alternative but to strongly recommend the abolition of the 13th Amendment. He urged the government, the Opposition as well as the international community to examine the conduct of the one-time mouthpiece of the LTTE.

    It was up to Parliament to decide on the 13th Amendment, the Defence Secretary said, adding that the eradication of the LTTE conventional military capability shouldn’t be a reason for the government to be complacent.

    The Defence Secretary was responding to a TNA delegation making representations to the Chinese Embassy in Colombo in a bid to block the on-going Chinese assistance to construct bases for security forces deployed in the Northern Province. The TNA was causing unnecessary friction, he said, adding that nothing could be as foolish as the TNA’s assertion that security forces were constructing bases on in Tamil areas.

    The TNA couldn’t be allowed to dictate terms to the State as regards the deployment of security forces during war or peace time, the Defence Secretary said, noting that it was the sole prerogative of the government. He said the 13th Amendment was nothing but a springboard for those seeking to accomplish what the LTTE had failed achieve through terrorism.

    The Defence Secretary said that that the government should realise the consequences of the TNA’s efforts to undermine GoSL’s relations with friendly countries. The TNA had never so much as issued a message of condolence when the LTTE killed Chinese nationals twice in separate attacks during the conflict, the Defence Secretary said. The TNA should be held accountable for its role during the 2001-May 2009 period, he, recalling that TNA leader R. Sampanthan’s had declared in the run-up to Dec 2001 parliamentary polls that the LTTE was the sole representative of Tamil speaking people.

    Commenting on persistent TNA allegations that outsiders were being settled in Tamil areas since the end of the conflict, the Defence Secretary said that the main Tamil party was making an attempt to trigger ethnic tensions. “First of all let me tell you there is absolutely no necessity for the government to move outsiders to Northern and eastern Provinces. But people must have the right to live in any part of the country. There cannot be different sets of rules for Tamil speaking people and others.” He said people from the North and the East had moved to Colombo and its suburbs during the conflict and were living there peacefully. Likewise, other people, too, should have a right to live in any part of the country without being troubled by political parties or politicians, he added.

    Lets strip these TNA bastards of their Sri Lankan citizenships and make them stateless donkeys. Lets see if any country will accept this trash. Why should we let them be nourished by tax payers money and go against our nation?

    I think we should stand outside parliament and drench them with dog excrement but then I’d rather not offend dog excrement.

    The sooner the better!

  6. lingamAndy Says:

    We Tamil living in Sri Lanka never ever work for Indian ( does not matter north indian or South indian for us India are india ) !!!

  7. Dham Says:

    Poor brainless Tamils are now hopeful of India and the West will punish Rajas and because of fear they would kneel down.
    Before the resolution they were quite. Now they drunk again.
    Unfortunately Sri Lankan Tamils will be extinct in 30 years time. Very sad but we cannot give brains to them.

  8. lingamAndy Says:

    any other alternative left for Poor brainless Tamils ? NO

  9. Dham Says:

    No country in the world is bound by any “commitments” made under Duress. ‘Commitments’ made under Duress are Null & Void in any court of Law, in any part of the world.

  12. lingamAndy Says:

    Fran Diaz
    No country in the world is bound by any “commitments” made under Duress. _ Correct but not applicable to big brother India !!!
    They know How to brain washed us, how to trained us, how to wiped out us, how to summons us ( eg laters news Our DEFENCE SECRETARY will need to go to indian this weekend ) !

  13. Fran Diaz Says:

    Why isn’t ‘commitment’ applicable to India ? Sri Lanka is not doing anything to harm India.

  14. mjaya Says:

    Lets chant this day and night where ever our leaders can see.



  15. Dham Says:

    Lingam Malli,
    This is the last time I am going repeat the question,
    Tell me what is THE PROBLEM ?

    If no answer given I am going confirm that you are a RAW agent posing as an innocent Tamil. I had this suspicion all the time.

    As I said, Tamils are discriminated heavily in Malaysia. Also to an extent more than Sri lanka in Singapore. Needless to say Australia, Canada every Asia is discriminated.

    So tell me what is BLOODY THE PROBLEM ?

    I want to give you a solution if can describe the problem. If you are an Indian agent you cannot honestly discribe the problem.

  16. lingamAndy Says:

    Tell me what is THE PROBLEM ? We Tamil living in Sri Lanka want excectly NEP (similar -not more or not less) like Kerala in india !

  17. lingamAndy Says:

    So tell me what is BLOODY THE PROBLEM ?- I want to give you a solution !
    Please can you give us NEP administrat ourself like Malayalee adminstrating in Kerala , Gujaratis adminstrating in Gujarat !!! not more not less !!!

  18. Dham Says:

    I didn’t ask you what do you want. I asked “WNAT IS THE BLOODY PROBLEM”.
    If I said I want a government like Singapore it is not going to happen.
    I can also demand I want a “Tamil Free” SriLnaka , that I cannot get.
    You can ask anything but you must be practical.

    You cannot discribe your problem. You just want to ask for a seperate state for the asking sake.
    Your intention is still tamil Eelam. You think you can keep on cheating Sinhala people.

  19. lingamAndy Says:

    You cannot discribe your problem. ! Yes I agrred Our is not problm our is life !
    What we want life to live that all ! NO DC or PC or OC(Free) !
    Since Indipendant We were chased out (1956 to 1983) waster than dogs!
    1983 to 2009 VP’s time Karma worked backed ward !!!
    2009 to Now ! day light lies to cheating/manupilation (Eg: Zero civilians dead to 13 Plus ) !

    Your intention is still tamil Eelam- Fully agrred no alternative left for us !

  20. Dham Says:
