The parliamentary group delegation of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna led Democratic National Alliance (DNA) is scheduled to undertake a three day-tour to Vanni and Jaffna from June 14 Monday. JVP leader Somawansa Amarasingha will be leading the delegation, according to DNA parliamentary group leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake to media Sunday.

JVP delegation is to visit camps and detention centres in Vavuniyaa where hundreds of uprooted Tamil civilians from Vanni during the final leg of the war against the LTTE are detained.

The delegation also would study the shortcomings and the urgent needs of those uprooted Tamils waiting for the resettlement in their villages in Vanni, JVP sources said.

JVP parliamentarians Anurakumara Dissanayake said his delegation is also scheduled to meet a delegation of the Jaffna University Students Union.

The delegation led by the Inter University Students Union (IUSU) led by Udul Premaratne was refused permission last week to enter the Jaffna University to hand over relief materials to those uprooted Vanni undergrads.
