Ladies and Gentlemen,

My name is Subramaniam Masilamany, I am a Tamil.

Today “Our Focus must be on Socio-Economic Development”

Today my attention is on rebuilding our great heritage destroyed by misguided Singhalese. The recent behaviour of a few Singhalese ministers and the May 2009 genocide of 40,000 innocent starving people is not an unconscionable action, it is not even a conscionable action, it is beyond ignorance, it is poor evolution of the minds of people. Their minds were misguided by their religious establishment. We have 20 million minds to be reformed.

When people are indoctrinated in racism, fanaticism and terrorism for over two generations they become a force unto themselves. It is not the people but the people who lead them. But things changed since May 2009. The International community, The United Nations, The Non Aligned Nations and as lately as last week the elders such as Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, Jimmy Carter, Mary Robinson and eight others got involved. Now the misguided kingdom is under control, but it may try occasionally to unleash it force. We have done a tremendous job of informing the world.

So with what is left, we have to rebuild our great heritage, culture, families, schools, place of worship, co-operatives and businesses. I remember how the Singhalese destroyed our co-operative system. How they burned our libraries, How they burned our Schools and How they burned our businesses and How they destroyed our people and their loved ones. Now they are talking about reconciliations but the blood has not dried. Don’t think they have reformed, but they are under control now and we must keep them under control. We cannot afford to let our guards down. So one group of us must constantly monitor and keep the UN, IC, NAM and the Elders informed. The Singhalese are a pestilence, should be eradicated but they are classified as humans so we have to observe human right codes and rehabilitate them.

The rebuilding of our great civilization needs funds, expertise, workers, and an organization to manage it. We have to ensure that the process takes an organised and controlled form to ensure accountability and smooth flow of events. We have our elected Parliamentarians who can be our institution that will direct the development work. Tamil National Alliance is the only legally elected and internationally recognizable organization. If Gothabaya Rajapaksa says it is KP. Just ignore him. He and his intelligent chief Kapila are trying to divide the community and the United Nations. Any dealing through KP is about corruption and squandering. We want the Tamil people to be careful. KP is LTTEs point man, money was collected in the name of terrorism, and according to US, UK, EU and Canadian laws it is a criminal offence. So when and if any Tamil co-operate with KP and Gothabaya you are violating the Criminal code. Money was collected for funding terrorism so any one who has collected money is guilty of an indictable offence. Tamils can remain extricated but if you associate with these cronies you may end up in trouble with the law. The enforcement of law is in the hands of the public too. If any one associates with KP they should be charged with financing terrorism. Our advice to our people is to stay far away from Gothabaya and KP. A Jackal is Jackal is a jackal, it will never be pigeon. KP is selling the community, by the way what ever happened to his cyanide capsule? Isn’t he suppose to swallow it when apprehended? The era of war and KP is over. It is economic welfare not warfare. we got some great things to do. Let us do it. It is all about building people and life, one person at a time.

We have to accept Tamil National Alliance as our managers of the funds in the North and the East. All funds must be sent to them to create transparency, accountabilty and legality. As elected members they are the law makers, they have immunity. The money collected and sent has to be managed or deposited in a bank like Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation.

This money has to invested, remember the word invested, even a cup of coffee is an investment. That is how you get the max about of your investment. Education and Institutions are the best place to invest your money. Listen to me carefully we invested every penny and every minute of our life. Our greatest investments are time, money and people who will give their life for our efforts. To build a great society we must fund books, libraries and information systems.

Secondly we must invest inAgriculture, Industry and information technology. No society can hope to live peacefully without a vibrant economy.

Thirdly we must finance great cultural centres; a culture is a breeding place of scientific knowledge. Famous scientists are ardent supporters of culture, art and literature. Our cultural centres were destroyed by the barbarian invasion. Funds are needed to rebuild them. But that money has come from our investment in education and entrepreneurship

Fourthly we must give secured and unsecured loans to students and young entrepreneurs.
We have to set up closed circuit banking system with loans and online monitoring to ensure funds are used wisely not wastefully.

Remember three famous Chinese sayings

ONE
Give a man a fish you will feed him for a day, teach him to fish he will feed all his life.
TWO
I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand
THREE
Greater the challenge, greater the glory.

My dear brothers and sisters, Work hard, stay together, remain steadfast and never ever give up.

I am Subramaniam Masilamany,
I am world-class Tamil powered by conscience, convictions and commitments
Thank you for your time.
