    Quite apart from Indian businesses investing in SL there are so many SL businesses that have toned down operations to the extent of even closing down some production lines and relocated to India.ie:Bata, Munchee Unilevers etc etc. God help the Indians who think of investing in SL!

    [PMK wants referendum on Tamil Eelam]

    but Tamil Eelam not far from ATTRACTS investment , so keep the funds available for the grand opportunity in TAMIL EELAM !

    [Villupuram, Nov 30: Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK), a constituent of the UPA at the Centre, today demanded that India should press for a referendum in Tamil inhabiting areas of Sri Lanka to know whether they were for a separate nation of Tamil Eelam.

    Talking to reporters here, party founder S Ramadoss called for a complete shift in the foreign policy of India towards Sri Lanka. India should try to understand Sri Lankan Tamils` viewpoint and change its policy accordingly.

    He charged that policy makers in the Union government were insensitive to the sentiments and emotions of Tamil Nadu people on the Sri Lankan Tamils issue. The training provided by the Centre to Sri Lankan air force personnel would only be used against Tamils in the island, he said.

    Terming yesterday`s talks between the Chief Ministers of Tamil Nadu and Kerala as a failure, he demanded that the water level in Mullaperiyar dam should be raised to 142 feet as per the Supreme Court verdict.

    `The talks between the Ministers of the two states will not produce any solution since the chief ministerial-level talks could not produce anything. It is futile to continue talks with Kerala,` he quipped.

    He said a separate body should be created for sharing Cauvery water and the responsibility of administrating the dams and irrigation projects on Cauvery should be entrusted with it. (Agencies)]

    Sri Lanka`s inflation becoming higher and higher due to excessive printing of currency. None is responsible this unacceptable issue than Piraparan. Alive or not, his name ruins Sri Lanka, causing Tamils to suffer more than Sinhalese. Many Tamils trapped in war hit areas are very keen to come to government controlled area to live peacefully.

    If you talk to moderate Tamil, he will no doubt tell that he wishes to live in government controlled areas. The LTTE now often used to have trapped peolpe as human Shields. Because the LTTE doesn`t care at all the happiness of Tamil people, they just want to fulfill their targets irrespective of how Tamil people suffer.

    MANY TAMIL VIEWERS OF THIS FORUM OUT SIDE WAR TORN AREA OR OUT SIDE OF SRI LANKA WOULD TRY TO JUSTIFY WHAT LTTE IS DOING THERE. BECAUSE THEY DON`T WANT TO TELL THE TRUTH. THAT`S WHY THE LTTE SO STRONG AS OUTSIDE TAMIL PEOPLE HELP THEM IN FIGHTING. GOOD EX. WHY LTTE DON`T ALLOW GOVERNMENT TO PROVIDE FOODS THROUGH A9 ??? BECAUSE THEY WANT TAMIL PEOPLE TO LIVE FOODLESS AND MEDICINLESS , THEN LTTE COULD GET ATTENTION FROM OUTSIDE TAMILS AND INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY TO PRESSURIZE GOSL . THE LTTE DOESN`T HESITATE TO GO ABOVE THE DEAD BODIES OF THEIR OWN TAMILS.

    I HAVEN`T HEARD ANY TERRORIST OUTFIT USED THEIR OWN PEOPLE`S BODIES TO PAVE THEIR VICTORIES.

    I just wanted to tell you how LTTE helps to inflation in Sri Lanka by continuing violence in their own country.

    Indians are keen to invest in Sri Lanka, of course SL is a better country to be invested, but the political environment is unfavorable not only for Indians but also for Sri Lankans because GOSL`s now main income source is TAXING or Printing money to cover the budget deficit .

    The GOSL earlier justified every price increases marketing oil price increases in the world, but unfortunately ( of GOSL ), now oil prices come down causing SL not to market the same theory, Now all what they could do is marketing the War theory, It`s true that the Government has to allocate more funds to safeguard the country as we need the country first. But can the government cover every thing by existing war ???

    Herein no war zone, the Government was kind enough to increase their own salaries keeping the other`s mouth shut. Government never hesitates to limit their allowances. Officially they may, but what about unofficially ??? Some ministers don`t carry out massive projects already started due to low something. Needless to tell by names, Many people know where the so called projects are on halt. The President could change this attitude by ordering relevant ministers to go ahead. But the H.E has much more duties on his hands.

    The crimes, rapes, abductions, abuses are daily rising in no war zones. The HE could mitigate these uncivilized acts by enforcing the law and order. What happened to ` Ellum Gaha ` which caused to fill many head lines or tropics in those days when the high court judge Mr.Sarath Ambepitiya was killed. The former President rushed to import ` Lanuwa ` from Pakistan, By that time, every body was happy to see murders, rapers, and other corrupted`s being punished in capital way, But that was a another dream in the Dreamland. The Capital Punishment was put on hold , Is due to the war in north ? or due to no foreign funds or aids or due to what ????

    The GOSL spends a lot of money to maintain world heaviest ministry ( country size and population concerned ), not only the heaviest cabinet, how about the PC`s ministers ? How the GOSL was governed before PC`s came into the Country ???? Those days was the country premature stage ??? I think GOSL has to think about the no war zone first, because they try to cover every thing by the war.

    Provincial Councils and Pradeshiya shaba`s are very good for unemployment problems because many people are employed here .

    Can anyone justify in simple words what these PC`s members and TC members are doing ??? We have government agents for every districts, AGA`s for each divisional secretariats and many more attached these bodies. All these are doing the same work, Small one has to get the permission from the next hierarchy, and so one, Finally from the HE. This will eat not only country`s money but also valuable time.

    I AM SURE THAT GOSL WOULD BE ABLE TO CREATE MUCH MORE JOBS IN PRINTING SECTOR TO PRINT LOT OF CURRENCY NOTES TO SETTLE RISING DEFICITS EACH AND EVERY YEAR.

    Kiwi,

    Yeah. This came as a surprise to me as well. Lets see if this is all bs by the government or whether it is actually happening. I don`t really see how the current situation could actually atract investors.
