The Sri Lankan government rejected a referendum conducted by the British Tamil Diaspora over the weekend endorsing the principle of Tamil Eelam. Speaking to Daily Mirror online Government Defense spokesperson Minister Kehiliya Rambukwella said Sri Lanka is not concerned of any referendum conducted by any community or country.
“We are a democratic country and follow all process of elections and political solutions wanted by the people of Sri Lanka,” he further said.
This was after British Tamil Diaspora conducted a poll over the weekend endorsing the principle of Tamil Eelam last week.
The poll showed over 64,000 British Tamils saying “yes” to Tamil Eelam. The poll took place in sixty five booths across London and in major towns and cites throughout Europe.
The British mandate will follow similar polls across Europe and Canada; it is a part of the global event where Tamils across the world are being asked to mandate an independent Tamil Eelam.
