The Federation of Public Organizations of Trincomalee has said that The EP Archaeological Task Force is unnecessary.
In a Report it has pointed out that the appointment of the President’s Task Force to manage the archaeological sites of Eastern Province is an act of dispersion.
It had also said that while rejecting the President’s Task Force completely, it is strongly condemning politicized work plans which will render the ancientness and existence of Tamils into a question mark.
By an extraordinary Gazette put out by the President, a committee of 11 persons have been appointed to safeguard the legacies of Eastern Province and hand them over to the future Generation, including the Defence Secretary, EP SDIG, the Mahanayake of the Arisimalai Vihare and other Buddhist monks.
The Mahanayake of Arisimalai played an important role in Sinhala- Buddhistization of EP, especially Trincomalee.
Investment is made in the building up of a nation with only Sinhala Buddhist culture which is the single political programme of rulers with Mahavamsa mentality.
The appointment of the said Task Force is the latest of the Attempts to alter population distribution through colonization with the aid of military power and reduce the concentration of Tamils in the EP.
Hence, while rejecting the President’s Task Force completely, We are strongly condemning politicized work plans which will render the ancientness and existence of Tamils into a question mark. We wish to insist that through Tamils and Muslim fighting together both nations can win their rights, it has said.
