Civic council demolishes illegal plant put up by southern trader in Ki'linochchi

[TamilNet, Thursday, 16 July 2020, 18:35 GMT]
Karaichchi Divisional Council (Piratheasa Chapai) has demolished an illegally constructed saltern-tank at Cherukkan village, located in Uruththirapuram North of the district of Ki’linochchi, on Thursday. The two-storey construction was put up by a Matara-based Sinhala businessman. He had seized 140 acres of lands with 2.5 km coastal stretch to construct a saltern exerting political influence, divisional council members said.

The shady operator from the South had deceived the villagers stating that he was bringing “development” to their village.

The former SL Governor to North Suren Raghavan was also backing the “development” encroachment.

Around 40 saltern pans, each at the extent of two acres, have been prepared without securing the required permissions from the elected Council.

Karaichchi Divisional Council, under the chairmanship of A. Velamalikithan, acted against the move. The Council was justifying its actions on the provisions of Section 51 of the Pradeshiya Sabhas Act, he said.

The encroacher was G.A Roshan Peiris from 207 Old Tangalle Road, Matara, according to a write-up issued by the Divisional Council.
