Issues of Sri Lankan Tamils need quick solutions but if the government fails in giving solutions, the people will feel fed up with this government as well, Opposition Leader R. Sampanthan has said in Vavuniya on Wednesday. 

According to PTI, he has said Tamils in Sri Lanka had anticipated a change for the better with President Maithripala Sirisena’s election two years ago, but they are yet to receive solutions to their problems.

"We see a difference in the current government from the past one on their policies, statements and standings, but our people are yet to receive solutions to their problems. It has been over two years since this government came," he said addressing a ceremony to handover houses to people displaced due to the LTTE conflict.

    What are the specific problems that tamils hvae that others dont?

    RuwanL Thursday, 13 April 2017 08:44 AM

    Quick solutions will meet only solve your side of the issues! The government should look at a holistic solution that is acceptable to the majority of the people and that will take time!

    No Sinhala politicians are willing to resolve the Tamil issue. The main trump card these politicians use is Tamil issues for their own agenda. You all remember what MR said immediately after winning the war. 13 plus plus. Now what happened 13 minus minus. Maithiri is no different to Mahinda. Same blood.

    YOU ARE ALWAYS EXPECTING BIG THINGS FROM THE COUNTRY WITHOUT DOING ANYTHING USEFUL TO IT.

    ANTON Thursday, 13 April 2017 09:09 AM

    IT IS HUMAN NATURE TO THINK WISELY AND ACT FOOLISHLY. .......

    @Sheri's comment - you like my name as well? LOL! And, your comment is absolutely irrelevant to the news item in question! Get real!

    cheers Thursday, 13 April 2017 09:42 AM

    Your wait will be a wait for ever and we waited for 30 years of terror to end and dont think you will see this change from the sinhalese if change happens you will be surely will be dead by then

    Nobody wants anything at the expense of Sinhalese people. Tamils need equality in employment ,development and education and language rights just as much as has Sinhalese ,not as somebody thinks more than Sinhalese or want to have which the Sinhalese do not enjoy .This is what power sharing was mooted out in 1987 ,but it was not implemented due to unwillingness of the government and LTTE

    Look around you old boy, the govt. is standing on its head to please you much to the frowns of the people of the South and yet you are expecting miracles to happen overnight. Your own 'boys' brought misery to your people which this govt. with all its problems are trying to put right, so please give it a chance. Don't be like the JO!!!

    You always talk about problems, but don't say what they are. And you think only your people have problems. Please be reminded that you politicians' greed with insatiable wants the whole country was plunged into a 30 year war. Now not only Tamils, but Sinhalese are suffering more than any other community. Pl. don't let this country drag into another war again.

    B S Perera Thursday, 13 April 2017 12:33 PM

    "Sri Lankan Tamils need quick solutions" ? Problems are common to all Sri Lankans, Tamils' especial problems are actually Tamil Politicians' problems. By devolution of powers what did people get so far? PCs and all are Politicians' gain while people are having more problems. Let Tamil people have their own lives like all other Sri Lankans less politicians' Manthra about "PROBLEMS"

    If our leaders were and are geniune we would have neverhad terrorism in this country.

    Mano Thursday, 13 April 2017 05:34 PM

    I agree with you sir,

    Ravi Thursday, 13 April 2017 05:41 PM

    Most of the comments are made by Sinhalese and it very clearly shows their ignorant of power sharing OR any brotherhood taught by Buddha. They are still clueless who started this since 1948. This is the reason every government cannot keep their promises and by pass it.

    ANTON Saturday, 15 April 2017 11:29 AM

    ACCEPTED.... AND APPRECIATED.
