The Sri Lanka Army has ordered residents of Vadamaradchchi East, which comes under control of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) to get passes from the SLA military base located in Palaly to take generators to their villages from the government controlled areas, civil sources complained

Till now the SLA soldiers located in Thenmaradchchi and Vadamaradchchi divisions allowed residents to take generators to their villages accepting passes issued by the respective Divisional Secretaries on the recommendations of village level officers (Grama Sevaka Officers) concerned.

SLA soldiers in Mirusuvil area Friday did not allow residents of LTTE controlled areas to take generators to their villages to be used for temple festivals, other public events and weddings. SLA soldiers had told the residents they should produce passes obtained from Palaly SLA headquarters.

Residents are in a quandary how to obtain passes from Palaly SLA headquarters, which is located in high security zone, civil sources said.
