Sinhala colonization threatens coastal areas of Mannaar

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 12 April 2011, 03:56 GMT]
Sri Lanka’s President Mahinda Rajapakse led United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) government has been implementing a planned scheme to settle Sinhalese persons in the southern coastal areas of Mu'l'lik-ku'lam, Thampapa'l'li in Ko'ndaichchi and areas along Madu road in the Mannaar district. Lands belonging to Tamil villagers in these areas are being grabbed to settle Sinhalese from the south, said Mr.Selvam Adaikalanathan, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Vanni district parliamentarian in a statement to media.

Mu'l'lik-ku'lam area has been brought under the control of the Sri Lanka Navy with the conclusion of the war.

While displaced Tamil families from the village are not allowed to resettle in their houses, the Sri Lanka Navy has taken steps to set up naval base along the coastal areas of the village.

Ko'ndaichchi is well known for cashew cultivation. The entire cashew cultivation had been destroyed in the war.

Now the Colombo government is engaged in bringing Sinhala people from south and settles them under the guise of rehabilitating the area.

At the same time construction of Buddhist Vihares and settling Sinhalese had been taking place in Madu, Mr.Adaikalanathan states in the press release.
