Deputy Minister says Tamils should return to Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka’s deputy minister of national integration, reconciliation and official languages has claimed that Tamils who fled the island should return as peace now prevailed.

Speaking at an alumni meet in Trichy, Tamil Nadu, Deputy Minister Seyed Ali Zahir Moulana said that the Sri Lankan government was taking steps to facilitate those who want to return to Sri Lanka, especially Tamils who want to return to the North-East, but claimed some Tamils were hesitant as they were ‘settled down with families’ in other countries.

The Deputy Minister also claimed that the Sri Lankan government was taking steps for demilitarisation by limiting military recruitments, Times of India reports.
