[TamilNet, Friday, 17 September 2010, 05:51 GMT]
Tamil National Alliance (TNA) spokesman and Jaffna district parliamentarian Suresh Premachandran said that a group of TNA parliamentarians will be visiting Valikaamam North Sri Lanka Army (SLA) occupied High Security Zone (HSZ) once they get the permission from Sri Lanka Ministry of Defence. Meanwhile, Basil Rajapaksa, Sri Lanka minister and brother of SL President Mahinda Rjapaksa who is in Jaffna has again said that the families uprooted from Valikaamam North by SLA will be allowed to resettle in their places excluding the surroundings of Palaali Airport, sources in Jaffna said. Meanwhile, SLA authorities have already marked places in Palaali to construct housing schemes for the colonization of Sinhala families in the lands of Tamils evicted by SLA, sources in Palaali said.

SL government ministers including Basil Rajapaksa had promised to resettle the uprooted families in Valikaamam North during Presidential and General elections but the promises had been not kept.

SL government plans to colonize the area surrounding Palaali Airport with families of Sinhala SLA personnel and Sinhala prisoners, the sources further said.

Families of Sinhala workers who had been brought to work in Kaangkeasanthu’rai harbour too are to be given houses in the above scheme.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka government has given the Sinhala name of ‘Okkalappadduva’ for the road from Keerimalai to the recently erected Buddhist temple in Thiruvadinilai in Maathakal.
