Camps

In the release, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar said, “more than one lakh Sri Lankan refuges were living in and around 100 camps in Tamil Nadu since 1983. Tamils who had fled to the U.S. and European countries are leading a dignified life as they are integrated into the society of those countries.” The Indian Government had granted citizenship status for refugees from countries like Bangladesh but Sri Lankan Tamils were left to live in refugee camps, he said.
