Mahaaweli Sinhala farmers to be settled in Vavuniyaa, Polonnaruwa

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 09 February 2011, 09:20 GMT]
100,000 families under the Mahaaweli scheme don’t have enough land. Steps will be taken to provide them with land in the Vavuniyaa and Polonnaruwa districts, said D. M. C. Dissanayake of Sri Lanka’s Director General of the Mahaweli Authority, according to The Island, Tuesday. The north has become a dumping ground of Sinhalese unwanted in the south so that the double purpose of getting rid of them as well as terrorising and subjugating or chasing away the Tamils from their country could be achieved, says resettlement officials in the north.

According to Mr. Dissanayake, the lands distributed to farmers under Mahaaweli scheme couldn’t be divided more than two blocks. The shortage of land now occurs due to large number of members in the families of Mahaaweli farmers.

The Mahaaweli scheme covers only the Sinhala districts.

Development watchers point out another picture too.

They say that the so-called ‘development’ projects of the powers and multinational corporates, preferring resources and relative stability in the south, also uproot large number of people in the south.

Sending them to the north to colonise the country of Tamils is perceived as a way to diffuse tension in the south arising from corporate colonialism in the south, the development watchers said.

The colonisation of the country of demographically weakened Eezham Tamils is an international conspiracy in complicity with genocidal Sri Lanka, they further said.

Hundreds of thousands of war-affected Eezham Tamils, confiscated of their lands are living in open prisons. SL military is cultivating their lands in Vanni.

Another hundreds of thousands up-country Tamils of Indian origin have never seen their own land for generations now.
