Survey Department in attempt to give peoples lands to Army in contravention to Election Laws

Sivamohan, MP has complains to the Vavuniya GA that the Survey Department is attempting to provide people’s lands in Vanni Districts in contravention to Election Laws.

Elaborating further he said that, on the orders of the Superintendent of Survey department, activities had been undertaken to survey and provide people’s Lands to the Army. This is contravening Election laws. Because, the Survey Department had undertaken activities, that will turn the people against a certain faction.

As this is Election period, people cannot congregate. Hence we are unable to mobilize people against this act. The Department is undertaking this activity to trap people in confrontation with law. Accordingly, in his capacity as the District Returning Officer, I have made complaints regarding this to the GA.

The department should desist from such projects during Election period , he said.

He also said that he is to make same complaint in Mannar and Mulaitheevu Districts.
