TNA call for land and police powers

Addressing the cross-party Indian delegation currently visiting Sri Lanka, TNA MP Selvam Adaikkalanandan reiterated the need for the devolution of land and police powers.

Speaking to the BBC after the event, Adaikkalanandan said,

“Power devolution without power is of no use. We need police and land powers for the provincial councils like the states in India,”

Highlighting the heavily militarisation in the North-East, Adaikkalanandan added,

“Land grabbing continues in the north and east, while Buddhist temples are being built in traditional Tamil areas,”

We need your support

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
