TNA MP Sumanthiran visit families in newly released areas

TNA MP M.A Sumanthiran visited families in the recently cleared areas in Velikamam North, which is in the periphery of the high security zone.

Families who fled this area 20 years ago return to find that they are in the middle of a jungle with no access and an irregular water supply. Families are seen returning to places which were their homes to find roofs gone and walls unstable, the TNA said in a press release.

As living is not a possibility in the present situation they return to their homes and cook just to take procession of what is their own. Although local government officials are striving to do everything within their means their efforts are like a drop in the ocean due to the lack of funds, it said. 

The MP appealed to the government to urgently release funds so that families could return to their homes and live normal lives.

He reiterated the need for the government to expedite the release of a large area of land which is still awaiting release.
