We are being cheated as in the past. People’s lands are not included in the lands to released today at Kepapulavu. Lands of anyone engaged in the continuous struggle demanding the release of the lands are not included in the lands to be released today. It is notable that the Army is to release 189 acre today. The Minister of re-settlements, D.M.Swamynathan will hand over these lands to the District Secretary.
When the people protesting was asked to comment about the release, they said that, most of the lands to be released today are jungle areas and include few lands of middle class people. Our lands are not released. This government cheated the world saying that they are releasing Kepapulavu, but they released only Seeniyamodai and Pilakudiyiruppu. This time also it is repeating the cheating. Not a single Land of us, who are engaged in protest is released, they said.
