All military personnel, who had been deployed for security in the Northern Province, should be withdrawn within the next six months, Northern Provincial Council member M.K. Sivajilingam said yesterday.

He said that soldiers  who can be accommodated in 600-700 acres of land were enough for security in the region, he said.

While addressing media at Jaffna he claimed that  about 4,000 acres of land in Valikamam in the Northern Province was still under Sri Lanka Army.

“They keep this land area forcibly,” he said.

“About 600 to 700 acres of land area is more than enough for Army and no need of that much of army personnel in the North. Therefore, the Army should be withdrawn with in the next six months," Sivajilingam said. (Romesh Madushanka)

    The government may say "Yes Boss"....

    raviwikramasinghe Tuesday, 23 May 2017 12:48 PM

    This is an ego problem, not ethnic. Govt should pay compensation if private lands are acquired without paying. Where to place military, should be according to the analysis of security risks.

    There was a terrorist organisation from the province. Any government needs to make a proper assessment before withdrawing an army from such an area. Would all politicians in the province assure that such terrorist movement will not arise?

    Who is this man to order ARMY to withdraw from the north. ARMY can stay in any part of the country. he has not given up his murderous terrorism which he has been carrying since murderous Praba's days. this hidden terrorist must be charged for talking publicly tempting innocent Tamils to go against the Forces.

    Nalin Tuesday, 23 May 2017 03:20 PM

    He is just a cheap lower level politician trying to gain more popularity before the next elections. Such people should not be given much prominence by either the electronic or print media.

    Why don't you get out from the North and go to your homeland, tamil nadu? Now get lost!

    Sheri Tuesday, 23 May 2017 03:43 PM

    Obviously he is being paid by tamil diaspora. The country is safe with the army in the North and where they should be.

    Ronnie Bugger Tuesday, 23 May 2017 04:08 PM

    Yeah, yeah, if not, WHAT ??

    Dias Tuesday, 23 May 2017 04:10 PM

    The military forces must remain in the North and East permanently......yes, as long as a threat from the diaspora and Tamil Nadu exists, moving the military out should be considered treasonous. Why then are American troops still in Germany, Japan, South Korea......because a threat exists.

    ganesh Wednesday, 24 May 2017 08:30 AM

    can you give a single proof Sam fo your claims

    sujata Wednesday, 24 May 2017 08:33 AM

    no problems in the army continuing with their presence in the north-east, but do not forcibly occupy civilians land. This is not done in the south
