Tamil Diplomat

Attempt of land grab stopped at Veddukkiray, Pooneryn

Attempt to survey lands in order to acquire land for Army was stopped by the intervention of NPC’s Kilinochchi Members. These lands are owned by Tamil people as far back as 1971 where the survey department officer went to Veddukirai to measure the lands, landowners came to the spot and opposed  the move.

NPC members who were in close proximity at the time also rushed there and spoke to the Department officials. Following this the Department Officials abandoned their attempt and went away.
