Wigneswaran gets ‘UN Lesson’ on Sri Lankan ‘Unitary State’

Wigneswaran gets ‘UN Lesson’ on Sri Lankan ‘Unitary State’

[TamilNet, Sunday, 20 July 2014, 23:19 GMT]
The UN Resident Coordinator in the island, who also assumes the role of Humanitarian Coordinator of the UN System, has recently neglected the request by Northern Provincial Council Chief Minister CV Wigneswaran to partner with the Northern Provincial Council ‘Government’ to conduct a comprehensive Need Assessment Report on the requirements of the war-affected population in North and instead entered into an agreement with the Colombo Government Ministry to conduct the same project. This was revealed to the public by Mr CV Wigneswaran himself, at a public address delivered by him on the occasion of the opening ceremony of the Chavakachcheari Town Hall on Saturday.

English translation of the Tamil transcript of what Mr Wigneswaran told the gathering on his interaction with the UN Representative in Colombo follows:

“Recently, I requested the United Nation's Resident Coordinator to work with the Northern Provincial Council to conduct and submit a comprehensive Need Assessment Report to identify the special requirements of the war-affected population here and to propose appropriate measures through their research in order to properly address the needs of the affected population. The immediate response was very positive and it looked like a full cooperation was going to be extended by the UN Resident Coordinator on the effort.

“But, what happened in practice?

“Neglecting us, an agreement was signed with a [Sri Lankan] Government Minister on the same project.

“It was the same [SL] minister who was earlier issuing reports to media that I should come and see him. This SL minister had interfered without our knowledge and entered into an agreement with the UN Resident Coordinator.

“When we questioned the UN Resident Representative, the response was that the UN could enter into agreements only with the [Colombo] Government and not with the Provincial Council.

“There was no responsible answer from the UN Resident Representative to the question that why they had entered into this agreement without informing us.

“Not only that. When we questioned the UN Resident Representative, why the NPC was not even included in the Steering committee, the UN representative was telling us that we would be ‘consulted’ before proceeding with the project.”

“Things are taking place like the brood parasitism of laying eggs in the nests of crows

“The conduct of [SL] Government and its collaborators throughout the country reminds us as if their interpretation of politics is committing injustice,” Wigneswaran said.

Wigneswaran in his speech was also referring to habitual lies coming from Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The CM was referring to Rajapaksa ditching a promise on the transfer of the Chief Secretary, who is not committed to the work of the province but engages in sabotages.

The Colombo minister involved in the UN project hijack and was accused of ‘brood parasitism’ by Wigneswaran was Basil Rajapaksa, news sources in Jaffna said.

Sinhala-Buddhist land grab threatens Muslims at Thoappoor in Trincomalee

Sinhala-Buddhist land grab threatens Muslims at Thoappoor in Trincomalee

[TamilNet, Saturday, 19 July 2014, 23:46 GMT]
The divisional secretary of Serunuwara in Trincomalee district has issued letters to more than 35 Tamil-speaking Muslim families to vacate their lands at Naavatkaadu (Selvanakar) village near Thoappoor. The Muslim families are residing in the lands with necessary papers for decades and they have engaged in agriculture in the lands since 1960. However, Colombo’s officials claim that 85 acres of lands were taken over by the SL State and declared as ‘Arachaeological Reserve’ already in 1962. Now the Muslims have been given instructed to vacate from their lands before August 30.

The divisional secretary, who is a Sinhalese, claims that he had issued the notice under a 1980 Act for 49 acres of ‘State lands’.

When Muslim representatives protested against the move, the divisional secretary was promising not to force those having houses, but was insisting that agricultural lands and other non-residential lands should be handed over.

The vihara at the vicinity is referred as ‘Chinna Vikaarai’ (the little vihara) by the residents. It is situated in a 4-acre land.

Colombo is trying to seize around 600 acres surrounding the largest vihara, known as Seruwawila Rajamaha Vihara, situated in Seruwila.

The Rajamaha vihara is claimed as one of the 16 holiest Buddhist Shrines in the island by the Sinhalese and the area surrounding it is to be transformed into a Sinhala township.

Sinhala Buddhist monks maintain that there were 3 viharas in the surroundings of the Rajamaha or Tissa vihara.

According to them, the Seruwila vihara was built in 2nd Century BC enshrining the forehead relic of Gautama Buddha.

Ramzan Anwar, a Muslim Congress councillor in the opposition of the Eastern Provincial Council told TamilNet this week that the move was another step in making the Trincomalee district a Sinhala-majority district.
