Kurankupaanchaan IDPs to be resettled

[TamilNet, Saturday, 18 August 2007, 02:49 GMT]
Nearly three hundred families displaced from Kurankupaanchaan, a hamlet in Kinniya division in Trincomalee district in 1990, are to be resettled. A team of Sri Lanka government officials led by the Kinniya Divisional Secretary is to pay a visit to Kurankupaanchaan village during the weekend to see the ground situation before making arrangement for the resettlement, civil society sources said.

Currently the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) has a large camp in Kurankupaanchaan village.

Majority of the families displaced are of the Muslim community and the others are Tamils.

Only about five hundred acres of land in Kurankupaanchaan could be cultivated for both seasons in a year, and thousand acres for one season, farming sources said.

Kurankupaanchaan played an important role during the regime of President Chandrika Kumaratunge when the then Prime Minister Mr.Ranil Wickremasinghe signed a ceasefire agreement with Mr.Velupillai Pirapaharan, leader of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam in the year 2002.

Ms Chandrika Kumaratunge blamed the then Prime Minister that LTTE had occupied Kurankupaanchaan after the CFA came into force, sources said.
