Villagers to receive lands again

Steps were taken to release the land extent of 133 acres of the Keppapilavu village of the Muhudubadapattu Divisional Secretariat where an Army headquarters (HQ) was continued in order to keep national security, with the involvement of the Prison Reforms, Rehabilitation, Resettlement and Hindu Religious Affairs Minister D. M. Swaminathan.

It was carried out by providing Rs. 148 million to the Sri Lanka Army through the Prison Reforms, Rehabilitation, Resettlement and Hindu Religious Affairs Ministry, in order to relocate the Army headquarters.

Accordingly, the Minister has informed the Divisional Secretariat to take necessary steps to provide this land back to their original owners on December 28. People would be enabled to obtain their own lands back, after concluding their 290-day protest after.

The minister further said that steps would be taken to resettle 85 families on those lands, in the year 2018.
