Tamil cattle farmers complain of Sinhala occupation in Chengkaladi division

[TamilNet, Sunday, 09 February 2014, 23:47 GMT]
Sinhala paramilitary known as ‘home guards’ from Thambitiya in Ampaa'rai district have encroached into the grazing lands near Nediya-vaddaik-ku'lam in Pu'liyadip-poaththanai in Chengkaladi, Batticaloa, occupying the lands for sugar cane cultivation. The occupying Sinhala military and Buddhist monks from Ampaa'rai have also been accompanying the intruding Sinhala home guards, civil sources in Batticaloa said. Pu'liyadip-poththanai is located on A5 Badulla - Chengkaladi Road in Kiththu'l GS area of Chengkaladi DS division.

Pu'liyadip-poththanai, with a vast grazing land, has been used by the Tamil farmers.

The latest land grab along the border of Batticaloa and Ampaa'rai districts has come while the Tamil cattle farmers association was engaged in renovating the tank.

The occupation is also a sinister move to annex the area with Ampaa'rai district, civil sources in Batticaloa told TamilNet.

A similar pattern of occupation and land grab is also reported in Kevu'liyaa-madu and Katchchatkodi Suvaami-malai villages in Paddippazhai division along the district boundary between the two districts.
