Trinco TRO launches housing project in Paththinipuram

[TamilNet, Monday, 09 June 2003, 19:17 GMT]
The Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO) in Trincomalee Monday launched a housing project for the resettled families in Paththinipuram, a hamlet in Tampalakamam division and Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Trincomalee district political head Mr.S.Tilak Monday around 12 noon laid the foundation stone for the first house to be constructed, sources said.

Tampalakamam is located on the Trincomalee Kandy highway, about 22 k.m. west of the eastern port town.

In the first phase ten houses would be constructed, said the Trincomalee district director of TRO Mr.K.Mathavarajah.

Members of the Board of directors of the TRO in Trincomalee Messrs S.Kumarakurubaran, Ms Kamalathevi Thillainathan, Sahul Hameed, TRO Trincomalee project officer Mr.Kalaivarnan, Engineer Mr.Anton Wijekumar and several village level officers participated in the foundation-laying event, the sources said.

Each family in Paththinipuram possesses two acres highland and two acres paddy lands. Paddy lands are located under Kadawanaikulam across the main road that separates Paththinipuram village. However, resettled families are unable to cultivate their paddy lands as the Sri Lanka Navy (SLN), which has its detachment at Kalmuddiyankulam, a few kilometers away from Paththinipuram, says that the area under Kadawanaikulam comes under its high security zone.

SLN supplies drinking water to its naval headquarters in Trincomalee town from Kalmuddiyankulam.
