Colombo pushes for 40,000 acres land grab for Sinhalese in Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Sunday, 30 October 2011, 15:48 GMT]
More than 40,000 acres of fertile lands that are located in border villages that come under the DS division of Koa'ralaippattu North, Vavu'natheevu, Ea'raavoorpattu, Chengkaladi, Koa'ralaippattu South and Paddippazhai in the Batticaloa district belonging to Tamil speaking people are under alienation to Sinhalese without the permission of the District Land Alienation Committee, the District Government Agent and Divisional Secretary and is undermining the Provincial Land Ordinance, says Eastern Provincial Council (EPC) member R. Thurairatnam. The EPC has not taken any action against the illegal encroachments Mr. Thurairatnam says in a memorandum to the Chief Minister of the EPC, Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan.

The EPC member has also sent a copy of the memorandum to SL Deputy Minister for Resettlement Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan.

Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan and Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan are leaders of two paramilitary groups operated by the Sri Lanka military in the East and are aligned with SL President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Thurairatnam asked the chief minister Chandrakanthan to take immediate steps to stop such encroachments. All three communities are living in the border villages of the district. But the Colombo government has been adopting a covert plan to settle illegally Sinhalese people from the South with the motive of Sinhalacising the Tamil villages, he added.
