Tamil farmers lose title-deed lands to Sinhala colonisers in Mullaiththeevu

[TamilNet, Monday, 03 June 2013, 23:49 GMT]
The occupying Sri Lankan military has appropriated more than one hundred acres of paddy lands owned by Tamil farmers at Koozhaa-mu’rippu in Vedi-vaiththa-kal area of Nedungkea’ni DS division in the Mullaiththeevu district for Sinhalese being brought from the South by the Colombo government.

Vedi-vaiththa-kall is traditionally a Tamil agricultural village.

The Tamil farmers had been doing paddy cultivation till they were uprooted from the village.

They possess title deeds for about sixty acres and land development department permits for about forty acres.

Earlier, irrigation facilities had been provided to these lands from Koozhaa-mu'rippuk-ku'lam.

But, after the occupation of the country of Eezham Tamils, the ‘development’ promised by Colombo didn't reach them.

Even after their resettlement, they were not in the position of cultivating their lands due to the breach in the dam of the tank.

The Tamil farmers, who went to the their paddy fields last week to do preparation for the coming season saw Sinhalese persons from the south repairing the breached dam and clearing the paddy fields of Tamils for cultivation.

Vanni district Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian Mr.Sivaskathi Aanandan told media that Tamil farmers have approached their elected representatives and SL authorities concerned to allow them to do cultivation in their lands and to take action against those who have encroached.
