SL government manipulates IDP statistics in East: TNA MP

[TamilNet, Sunday, 03 July 2011, 12:45 GMT]
Tamil National Alliance parliamentarian from Batticaloa district, P. Selvarajah has blamed the Mahinda Rajapaksa government for false records of resettlement in the province. While many thousands people still find themselves displaced, their names are marked as resettled in the SL government records. “For example, people who displaced from Kagnchi-kudichchaa'ru and Thangka-vealaayutha-puram during the war are still living as displaced in Thampiluvil and Vinaayakapuram in Thirukkoayil in Ampaa'rai. But, their names are registered as resettled in the government list,” Mr. Selvarajah MP told media on Saturday. Rajapaksa government has also seized thousands of acres of lands in Ampaa'rai for the families of the Sinhala military personnel, he further accused.

The traditional lands of the Tamil people in Ampaa'rai district are being systematically encroached by the Sinhalese.

The Deputy Minister of Resettlement of the Rajapaksa government, Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan alias Karuna and Eastern Province Chief Minister Sivanesathurai Chandrakanathan alias Pillayan are not only keeping mum on the injustices being committed upon the Tamil people, but they are also a party contributing to the injustices, the MP blamed further.

The Deputy minister of resettlement has also gone on record lying on the number of people remaining to be resettled in the province as only ten thousand, blamed the TNA Parliamentarian said adding that the people in the East are not going trust the words of this deputy minister.

Recently, Poththuvil Divisional Secretary, members of the Rural Development Society (RDS) and the residents of the village Ma'natcheanai, situated in Poththuvil DS division of Ampaa'rai district, exposed a Sinhala Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), his 11 policemen and a contractor employed by him for encroaching 635 acres of lands of Tamil residents in the village.
