[TamilNet, Monday, 17 October 2011, 18:49 GMT]
Thirty Sinhalese families have been allocated lands under the Mahaweli Development Land Distribution Scheme in a traditional Tamil village Oamadiyaamadu located in Koa'ralaippattu North DS division in Batticaloa district. This planned land grab in Batticaloa district is being carried out on the direction of Colombo government led by SL President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

To a plea not to allocate lands to Sinhalese in Tamil village, an official from the Sinhala community working in the province had replied that Tamils should vacate the village to give accommodation to Sinhalese.

Since 2007 the Eastern province had come under the control of the Government of Sri Lanka illegal resettlement of Sinhalese people from South has been taking place under the patronage of Sinhala officials on the direction of the Colombo government.

Tamils are being chased out from their historical lands and villages due to the planned illegal settlement policy.

The TNA MP has sent a memorandum to SL President Mahinda Rajapakse.

Immediate steps should be taken to stop settling Sinhalese in lands belonged to Tamils and to send back all Sinhalese people to South, Mr.Yogeswaran said in memorandum.
