Occupation of ancient lands of Tamil people is being continued, in North and East, first during Mahindha Rajapakse rule after the end of the war, and then during the so called Good Governance Government of Maithri – Ranil and now under the guise of Departments.
More lands are being grabbed by Departments in Mullaitheevu which have been already affected severely by the occupation lands by various Departments.
Currently, 150 acre of agricultural lands Mulaitheevu Kokkuththoduvai had been completely grabbed. These ancient Agricultural Lands have been taken over under the guise of Birds Sanctuary. At the outset the Department placed only a name board here. Now they have erected barbed wire fences and have taken over the lands. More than 100 families are affected by this are unable to undertake Manavari cultivation.
