Relevant Officers should take speedy action for the people returning to the country now, after fleeing the country due to war affectations, to return to their routine life, said the Leader of the opposition and Leader of TNA, Era Sampanthan.
Coordinating Committee meeting for Trincomalee District was held yesterday. He said as above, participating in this meeting.
It is the duty of the Government to take action to move the people returning to their own places after displacing locally and to India towards their routine life, he further said. He also insisted that this should be implemented immediately.
Complaints have been received that the Forest Department and Wild Life Department are posing hindrances in them clearing their lands and settling in them. This should be done away with and if the returnees are possession of evidence regarding them living in the said places earlier, immediate action should be taken to settle them in their lands, he pointed out.
Further, the Officials should provide them with housing and other basic needs, he said.
