Release the lands of the People of North and East: JVP demands from the Government

The Northern people are asking for their lands only to live in them. Hence the Government should take action soon to release their lands, insisted the JVP MP, Sunil Hanthunethy in the house yesterday.

He said this during the debate on budget for Ministry of Lands.

Although nearly eight years have passed after the end of the way, no proper solution had been provided for the land problems of the Tamil people. The reason for this is that no proper records are available with the Government.  If adequate officers are appointed the making land records is not a problem.

The Government should grant lands in which refugees are staying in Vavuniya Poonthottam Refugee Camp, to them, he said.
