TNA MPs urge Ampaa'rai GA to allow resettlement of war-displaced Tamils

[TamilNet, Thursday, 05 January 2012, 20:43 GMT]
Tamil National Alliance parliamentarians Maavai Senathairaja, P. Ariyanethran and P Selvarasa, who visited Naavithan-ve'li, Kaarai-theevu, Aalaiyadi-vempu and Thirukkoayil Piratheasa Chapai (PS) in Ampaa'rai this week have urged the newly appointed Sri Lankan Government Agent of Ampaa'rai district Neil de Alwis to allow speedy resettlement of uprooted Tamil civilians in the district. Hundreds of civilians, uprooted from Kagnchi-kudichchaa'ru, Thangka-vealauthapuram, Chaakaamam, Kanakar-kiraamam and Oo'ra'ni following Sri Lankan military operations are yet to resettle in their own villages and are still living with their relatives and friends elsewhere.

The Tamil parliamentarians have requested the new SLGA of Amppa'rai district to take action to resume the functioning of schools in the Tamil areas.

The TNA delegation also urged Mr. Neil de Alwis to make necessary arrangements for the civilians who are dependent on agriculture and fisheries to resume their livelihood activities.

The meeting between the TNA delegation and the SLGA of Ampaa'rai comes after the parliamentarians discussions with the elected representatives of the civic bodies in the district.
