Tamil grievances, aspirations, demands and solutions
THE concept of a Tamil homeland is a myth as many
have pointed out in recent national newspapers. According to the
Constitution every citizen has equal rights to settle anywhere in
the country, if he or she wishes. Sri Lankan Tamils have always
availed themselves of this right without any restriction or
prohibition. This is evidenced by more than half the population of
Sri Lankan Tamils in the island being settled outside the demanded
"homeland", with their numbers increasing daily!
Never ever allow to bargain on the unity of the Nation
TODAY the Muslims are totally in favour of a
unitary government and a united Lanka. I would strongly urge in
these circumstances that special provision be included in the new
Constitution to avoid any such division."

time when a new left, disillusioned with 1970-77 "Coalition
politics", was emerging.
