R.Sampanthan, chief of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and  Leader of Opposition in the Sri Lankan parliament, complained in parliament, that qualified Tamils are not getting government jobs.


Sampanthan said that while Muslim leaders recruit Muslims; Sinhalese leaders get jobs for Sinhalese; and the few Tamils who are in power, recruit some Tamils; qualified Tamils are unable to get into government service.


Discrimination against the Tamils has been a long standing complaint in Lanka and there has been no change in the situation, the TNA leader pointed out.


He demanded that government should present the ethnic distribution in recruitment for government jobs since the present regime came into existence in 2015.
