Re-settle people at least up to KKS junction: Northern officials insist

The people age pressurizing us for resettlement saying that the Army is allowing everybody to go to ” Thal Sevena” ( A luxury hotel Operated by the Army inside Palaly base) freely but they are not allowing us to re-settle. So, at least allow resettlement up to KKS junction, insisted the state Officers in the high level meeting held at Palaly yesterday.

This meeting presided by Mrs. Vasantha Bandara, the Additional Secretary to Ministry of Defense , was attended by Officers of the District Secretariat, Divisional Secretaries, Officers of Army, Navy and Air Force. However,  neither the Additional Secretary nor the Security Forces officers gave any answer to their insistence, it was suggested that some areas to the east of Palaly Road are to be released soon.
