TNA Says Government Preventing Resettlement By Militarizing Areas

Aug 2, 2010 7:46:36 AM - thesundayleader.lk

A day after Indian Home Minister P. Chidambaram announced the Indian government’s decision to send a senior official from its External Affairs Ministry to Sri Lanka in a week to witness the rehabilitation work in the North, the Tamil TNA today (2) accused the government of preventing several displaced persons from returning to their homes in the North.

The TNA told the media today that several displaced persons have been prevented from returning to their homes in the North due to the government’s decision to militarize the area.

TNA MPs said that even a year after the war has ended, the government has taken steps to militarize the North and make settlements for the families of military personnel who would be deployed in the area.

The military according to the TNA has informed some of the displaced people that they will be given alternate homes.
