106 schools closed, 60000 students deprived of education in north

[TamilNet, Friday, 21 May 2010, 08:13 GMT]
At least sixty thousand children are deprived of their education after the war that concluded last year due to the closure of 106 schools in Ki'linochchi, Mullaiththeevu, Thu'nukkaai, Vavuniyaa North and Mannaar. Nearly 62,944 uprooted persons from Vanni are still detained in internment camps in Vavuniyaa, parliamentarian of the main opposition United National Party (UNP) Thursday claimed at a media briefing held in Colombo.

Most uprooted persons have lost or misplaced their land and property deeds and it is the biggest issue holding them back from rebuilding their lives.

Only four bags of cement are being distributed to them and the uprooted are left in the lurch to find alternate assistance to rebuild their dwelling lost in the war.

The Sri Lankan opposition has blamed that the Rajapaksa government institutions involved in resettlement are politicized and that they have chosen NGOs and INGOs that suit to their agenda.
