Strict laws to protect dividing the country.
The govt has decided to introduce strict laws in the coming year against politicians, various organizations and some officials in the north who are trying to divide the nation.
The reason for this is said to be the statements made by a professor of

Under these new laws all political parties trying to divide the country
would be proscribed while politicians will lose their MP posts. In the
past there were no such laws and as a result many Tamil politicians went
abroad and requested these govts help to create an Eelam state in Sri
Lanka. In addition the pension paid to Sri Lankans living abroad who
openly say that the country should be divided, will also be stopped
