India added Sinhala in the name board

Sinhala has been included in the name board of the Indian consulate in Jaffna.

Concerns were raised over the name board, especially at a time when similar criticism had been directed at some Chinese companies for not giving space to Tamil on their name boards.

Indian sources told that the name board of the Indian Consulate General in Jaffna had been placed 5 years ago.

it also said that the need for Sinhalese to be placed on the name board was probably not seen at the time as over 90 percent of the population in Jaffna are Tamil. However, one source admitted that it was an oversight and had to be rectified.

As a result, the name board has now been replaced to include Sinhalese.
