[TamilNet, Thursday, 09 December 2004, 16:33 GMT]
Resettled families in Varani village in Thenmaradchchi division Thursday held a sit-in protest preventing employees of Jaffna district secretariat entering the building bringing the civil administration to a halt till noon, civil sources said. The protesters demanded immediate payment of resettlement allowance of Rs 25,000 as promised by the Sri Lanka Government, civil sources in Jaffna said.

Varani residents withdrew the protest campaign after the Additional Government Agent Mr.S.Sivasamy assured them that they will receive the allowance before December 18th, civil sources said.

The Sri Lanka government has been paying resettlement allowance to all resettled families at the rate of Rs: 25,000 per family. Several families have been paid this allowance in other parts of the Jaffna district, except about three hundred resettled families in Varani area.
