Occupying Colombo resumes military land grab in Jaffna peninsula

[TamilNet, Sunday, 27 October 2019, 20:14 GMT]
The occupying military of the unitary state of genocidal Sri Lanka has resumed appropriation of lands at several locations in Jaffna peninsula. The SL Survey Department officials have been instructed to carry out surveying activities on Monday and Tuesday for the SL Navy that wants to grab lands at Chuzhi-puram. The tendency is notably worse at Neduntheevu (Delft), the farthest islet off Jaffna, said Shageevan Shangmugalingam, an elected councillor of Valikaamam North and the chairman of Resettlement Committee in that division.

The SL military was planning to grab lands at 60 different locations in the peninsula for a long time. However, the scheme was put on hold following the objections from the TNA.

However, the SL military is using the election time to advance the stalled plan, Mr Shanmugalingam said.

The SL Navy is demanding 40 perches of lands in Chuzhipuram (J174) GS area. The lands belong to a private owner, Mr Sellathurai Nallapillai.

SL Survey Department officials want to survey the lands of Mr Nallapillai on Monday.

Similarly, the SL Navy is trying to seize 5.5 acres of lands at three different locations in Neduntheevu. Two acres of lands belonging to Mr K Pasupathy and Mr N. Tharmakumar at Neduntheevu West, another two acres belonging to Mr Y. Adaikkalam at Neduntheevu Centre and a plot of coastal lands that belong to Mr K. Murugesu near the jetty are the locations, where the ‘expansion’ of SL Navy was being schemed, Mr Shanmugalingam told TamilNet.

Instead of temporarily postponing the surveying of the lands, the TNA must have revoked the relevant Gazette notifications that enabled the occupying SL military to expand its military installations at this juncture, he opined.
