SL government suspends WPF relief measures to resettled people in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 27 July 2010, 06:10 GMT]
Sri Lanka government has suspended the dry food relief supplied under World Food Programme to the recently resettled people in the outskirts of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) High Security Zone (HSZ) in Vazhalaay near Achchuveali, according to Divisional Secretariat officials who had suspended the supply of dry food rations on instructions from Sri Lanka government authorities.

Around 230 uprooted families evacuated from their village by SLA 20 years ago had been resettled in Vazhalaay in the first stage and were supplied with WPF dry food relief rations.

While Sri Lanka government and its ministers make much publicity of the above resettled people to the outer world the WPF relief is suspended to them who had been resettled just two months back, sources in Jaffna said.

Meanwhile, the resettled people in Vazhalaay said that their houses and properties had been plundered and they have no means of livelihood.
