TNA goes to courts against land registration

[TamilNet, Monday, 24 October 2011, 15:05 GMT]
The Tamil National Alliance on Monday filed a case against the re-registration of lands in North and East. TNA MP for Jaffna Mr. Suresh Premachandran said the re-registration, taking place in North and East, was illegal and the recent protest and political appeals have failed to give any result forcing the TNA to file Fundamental Right Case at the Supreme Court of Colombo.

An agenda based on a military programme and economic exploitation is widely alleged to be behind the re-registration programme of lands in Tamil areas, Mr. Premachandran said.

All the Tamil parties, except those who are party to the UPFA of Mahinda Rajapaksa have protested against the land registration and colonization of Tamil lands. The Tamil parties also held a protest campaign in Vavuniyaa a few days ago.

The TNA delegation is scheduled to visit USA to meet with US officials in Washington DC on Tuesday.
