Sand bunds constructed at Sivanagar, Kilinochchi during war not removed. Presence of explosives feared

The sand bund that had been constructed in the Sivanagar Grama Officer Division of the Kilinochchi , during war period had not been removed to date. Public Hall, community Centre, Elders Hall, Primary Health Centre, Pre-school, Sivanagar GTM School are located at the center of the Village. Further ¼ acre housing is also found near bund. Because of the bund, the areas closer to it are overgrown with jungle.

People point out that, because of this poultry cannot be undertaken and the chances of anti – social activities occurring is very high. They also expressed doubt that UXOs could be present in the bund.

When Police Officers of Kilinochchi came for a Civil meeting the village people had requested them to take action to remove the bund and possible UXOs with the assistance of the demining organizations.

Although it was promised that necessary action will be taken to remove the bund, so far no action had been taken.

Hence the people had requested that District Secretary, Divisional Secretary, politicians and relevant Officers should get together and take speedy action regarding this.
