If the Tamil politicians will not take action to redeem 617 acre of usable land currently occupied by the Army within one month, we will burn the effigies of the Tamil MPs, warned the President of the Wella Mulliwaikkal RDS.
The President , T.Srikanthan said that the effigies of the Tamil MPs will be burned at the end of this month in protest that no action has been taken to release our lands and demanding to take quick action in this regard.
Elaborating further, he said that, when we got displaced during the war, the army had taken possession of 617 acre lands. These lands are located between Vadduvagal and Vella Muliwaikkal. Coconut estates, agricultural lands and the beach for undertaking fishing are found in the 617 acre land.
As all these were found under the control of the Army, we are unable pursue our traditional trades.We are being distressed in being unable to go to our lands. We undertook struggles twice earlier. The Tamil MPs promised us that the lands will be released. But we have been cheated all the time.
Hence we have come to a decision that the effigies of TNA MPs, Era Sampanthan, Mawai Senathyrasa, S.Sivamohan, and Mrs. Shanthy Sriskantharasa, should be burned if they do not take action to release our lands within this month, at the end of this month, he said.
