The Wind Mill establishment is paving the way to sand smuggling in Maravanpulo area in Thenmaradchchi, the people of the area have accused.
They placed this accusation in a discussion held at Chavakachcheri Divisional Secretariat.
Elaborating further , they said that the Wind Mill company is in the process of constructing the Beach road. But they have not got any permission from the Divisional Secretariat. That is not an area for constructing road. It is an area for grazing of the cattle. Sand smuggling had increased after the road was constructed. Earlier, sand smugglers don’t frequent this area for fear of their vehicles getting buried in the sand. Now that the road had been constructed sand smuggling is occurring on a large scale with Heavy Tippers. Wind Mill company is also seem to be engaged in sand smuggling , they said.
