UPFA minister Hizbullah allegedly sabotages housing grants for poor in Kaaththaankudi

[TamilNet, Friday, 26 October 2012, 19:27 GMT]
MLAM Hizbullah, the SL deputy minister of child development and women's affairs in Mahinda Rajapaksa's ruling UPFA, has allegedly instructed the divisional secretary of Kaaththaankudi SHM Muzammil to ignore the list of poverty stricken beneficiaries compiled by 18 village (GS) officers, placing instead his list of UPFA supporters as recipients of a housing grant under the ‘Shelter to the Nation’ housing development that comes under the SL ministry of Housing & Common Amenities, which is led by SL minister Wimal Weerawanse, the former propaganda secretary of the JVP and a Sinhala extremist ally of SL president Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Mr Muzammil on Wednesday informed the GS officers to put aside the list of 65 house-less families, whom the village officers had selected under his earlier instruction to identify poverty stricken families as recipients of the grants of 100,000 SL rupees per family.

The GS officers have opposed to the latest intervention by Mr Hizbullah and have rejected to acknowledge the list allegedly furnished by Mr Hizbullah.

The embarrassed divisional secretary has conveyed the anger of the grassroots to the SL deputy minister Hizbullah, informed sources in Kaaththaankudi said.
