We will be forced to form a separate state- Mavai

22 October 2015 06:03 pm - 23     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


TNA MP Mavai Senathirajah said today that his party would be compelled to form a separate Tamil State with the help of the international community if any party resolved to form a Sinhala dominated state.

He said so in Parliament in response to a comment by MP Wimal Weerawansa that people should come together to safeguard the Sinhala identity and the sovereignty of the state.

“Statements such as these will push the Tamils towards separatism,” said Mr. Senathirajah.

He said the TNA was not satisfied with the OHCHR resolution which came out recently.

However his fellow party member MP M A. Sumanthiran said his party would help the government to work on the resolution. “We will wait and see what the government does about it,” he said. (Yohan Perera)

    TNA MP Mavai Senathirajah is nothing but a LTTE terrorist.He should face war crimes as leftovers of the murderous maniacs.

    The crazy Jokers have still not learned a lesson and still dreaming of a stupid Eelam. If they really need one, should return to south India and create one. Hope they could talk about a separate State and survive in their native Tamil Naadu.

    NIMAL Friday, 23 October 2015 07:06 PM

    Eelam lovers has to leave. Let Gota and Mahindha come back.

    Country was established by Sinhalese, others came as invited or uninvited guests, so we must admire the Sinhalese for their tolerance.
