Minister made this statement addressing gathering at Horana recently. 27 percent of Sinhala nationals are residing in the Eastern Province. 67% of Tamil people and four percent of Sinhala people are residing in the Batticaloa district.
Only 31% people have casted their votes towards Tamil National Alliance. 69% people have casted their votes towards government. This clearly proves two to third majority of people have defeated the Tamil Eelam demand in this country said the minister.
