SL government to build star hotels in Vadamaraadchi coast

[TamilNet, Thursday, 21 October 2010, 10:26 GMT]
Sri Lanka government which had not allowed families uprooted twenty years ago by occupying Sri Lanka Army (SLA) to establish its High Security Zone in Vadamaraadchi North has allocated funds for the construction of a star hotel in Kaangkeasanthurai for tourists from the South, sources in Jaffna said. Meanwhile, SLA in Vadamaraadchi have begun to warn of landmines in Vadamaraadchi area occupied by its personnel. This new move is a scheme to delay the resettlement of the uprooted families in Vadamaraadchi, the representatives of the Welfare Organizations for the Uprooted Families said.

Sri Lanka Ministry of Tourism has allocated 50 million rupees to the construction of a star hotel in Kaangkeasanthu’rai where the ‘Harbour View Hotel’ is located. A Hotel Management College is to be established in the area, sources in Vadamaraadchi said.

The coastal area from Kaangkeasanthu’rai to Maathakal had been declared infested with landmines by SLA.

The move to construct star hotels along the above coast to cater to the tourists from South exposes the SLA warning of the danger of landmines as a ploy to prevent resettlement of the uprooted families in their own properties now occupied by SLA, the representatives further said.
