JVP: Govt. Has Failed To Address Issues Of Northern Civilians

Mar 6, 2011 8:12:05 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The JVP has said the government has failed to improve the living standards of the people in the North who were affected by the war.

JVP General Secretary Tilvin Silva told a press conference that the government has not addressed the issues faced by these people.

He said that no practical measures have been taken to address the immediate issues faced by the people in the former war torn areas.

He observed that 22 months after the war has ended the people in the North still lacked basic facilities.

Silva also asked the government to handover to its original owners 1,202 houses that were acquired during the war in the North.

He added that steps should be taken to establish a complete civil administration in the North.
