No to alternative lands, original lands must be released with compensation, say Tamil activists

[TamilNet, Sunday, 29 September 2019, 18:19 GMT]
SL Governor to North Suren Raghavan is deceiving the Tamil land-owners by proposing to consider accepting alternative properties in return for the fertile lands, which the occupying SL military wants to retain under its control in Valikaamam North in Jaffna. Out of 47 GS divisions, 21 are affected by SL militarisation. It is the most fertile soil in the entire peninsula. The SL military has continued widespread cultivation, dairy farming and fishing by utilising the resources of the uprooted Tamils even after the end of the war in 2009. It is not justifiable, said Nallathamby Ponrajah, the member of Valikaamam South Divisional Council. In the meantime, grassroots activists are planning to launch a renewed campaign to free their lands said SL State must return the properties and also compensate for the loss of income caused by the unjustified occupation of their areas so far.



The land-owners vehemently object the sinister attempts by SL President Maithiripala Sirisena’s agent Suren Raghavan, Valikaamam North Councillor Shageevan Shanmugalingam told TamilNet.



Meanwhile, the activists planning to step up the campaign said they would be integrating uprooted land-owners from Keappaa-pulavu and other villages in the province.

The renewed campaign should also include the uprooted people of Keappaa-pulavu and other locations in the Northern province, the activists said.
