Systematic Sinhala colonisation of Vavuniya continues – TNA MP

A TNA MP for Vavuniya district has accused the Sri Lankan government of continuing the Sinhala colonisation policies of the former governments.

Speaking to the Oslo based Tamil website Tamilnet, TNA MP Shivasakthi Ananthan said ‘35,000 acres’ of land continues to remain under the occupation of the Sri Lankan military forces ‘along the Vavuniya border’.

‘Most of these places are being systematically Sinhalicised,’ he added.
