How did the Tamils make efforts to gain power in Sri Lanka?

Answer:

  • Sri Lankan Tamils launched parties and struggles for the recognition of Tamil as the official language.
  • They also made efforts for regional autonomy and equality of opportunity in securing education and jobs.
  • Several political organisations were formed demanding an independent Tamil Eelam (state) in northern and eastern parts of Sri Lanka.
