Gota wants to change demography: TNA
TNA MP Suresh Premachandran refuting recent remarks made by Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa said that the statement was a prelude to changing the demographic patterns of the North.
In an interview with BBC, Defence secretary Rajapaksa has said it is not appropriate to view the north of the country, over which a separatist war was fought, as a predominantly Tamil area.
“The most recent census revealed that out of the 954,000 residents in the North 900,000 are Tamils and 23,000 Sinhalese, so what is the Defence Secretary trying to say? Almost all the census carried out by the governments, have revealed this demographic pattern. Is he saying that this is not true?” MP Premachandran asked.
Premachandran went on to state that that the acts of the government are clearly set on an agenda. “ The growing number of Buddhist temples in the area, the militarization of the north and the fact that there are new Sinhalese settlements in many areas of the North shows what the Defence Secretary wants to do is to change the demographic patterns of the Northern province” he said.

What is wrong in balancing the demographic patterns???? If every sect or cast of diverse faiths can live together in the South and other parts of the Country, why on earth the Northern part must be previledged to have only Tamils…
This is a Budhist Country where Minorities have equal rights….
The real truth is at times bitter to swallow…and We have never felt a minority all my life….
So you tamils wish the same separatism of ltte did when they were, by killing all who’re not tamil in the north & east..?
Sorry for your greedy & selfish wish which’s NOT going to be realize…
The problem is that TNA jokers do not want to treat Tamils as Sri lankans. The racist eyes of TNA will never be corrected, it seems, and are living in primitive feudal times. If TNA members are not Sri Lankans but are only Tamils, then they better get out of Sri Lanka and go to “Tamiland”.
As Mohamed said above (like a true Sri Lankan), any citizen in Sri lanka are Sri lankans, they can live anywhere in the country.
Sri Lanka is for Sri Lankans, not for Tamils. Not an inch of Sri Lanka is for Tamils. It is only for Sri Lankans.
