‘The first prime minister of Sri Lanka, D.S. Senanayake, when inaugurating the Padaviya scheme of colonization openly and with no qualms stated the objective of his government as follows:

“Today you are brought here and given a plot of land.  You are men and women who will carry the destiny of this island on your shoulders.  One day very soon they will look up to you as the last bastion of the Sinhala.”‘
