Meanwhile, Minister Douglas Devananda who is also the EPDP leader accused the TNA of using inflammatory language during the campaign. He said the TNA even referred to the incidents such the burning down of the Jaffna library in 1987 and the communal riots in 1983, to gain political mileage at this election.

They aroused racial sentiments among people saying the Sinhala people are going to be settled in the entire North. Also, they accused that Sinhala election officials had been brought from the South to do various election malpractices. They talked about a plan to demolish the statue of ancient Tamil King Sangiliyan , and erect the statue of a Sinhala Buddhist monk instead, the minister said.

TNA election speeches should be translated and made available for national and International scrutiny.

Does Sri Lanka have racial vilification laws? These Jaffna moday types have been inciting racial hatred too long.
