A team of government officials led by Mr.M.Mubarak, Kinniya Divisional Secretary, representatives of farmers' organizations visited Kurankupaanchaan tank, Kiraan village and abandoned paddy fields in Kurankupaanchaan village.

Later a discussion was held with Divisional Secretary in the chair.

SLA officials, representatives of Ulama Sabha and farmers' organizations participated in the discussion. Farmers' representatives wanted permission to commence immediately paddy cultivation in their lands and resettlement of IDP families.

SLA officials replied that farmers could commence cultivation. They could put up huts while the cultivation progresses.

Majority of IDP families from Kurankupaanchaan belongs to Muslim community and the rest are from Tamil community, sources said.
