The Army said it would release another 1,099 acres of land used for cultivation in the Northern Province to civilians.

President Maithripala Sirisena has directed the army release state lands being used as Army farms in North and East provinces while ensuring no impact to national security.

Accordingly, the Army said it has identified 1099 acres of state land in the Northern Province which would be released within a short period in addition to the ongoing process of releasing private and state lands in the North and East.

Subsequently, a total of 479 acres, belonging to the Forest Conservation Department of the Poonakary Divisional Secretariat in Kilinochchi District will be released.

A total of 120 acres, belonging to the Forest Conservation Department of the Puthukkudiyiruppu Divisional Secretariat in Mullaitivu and 500 acres belonging to the Forest Conservation Department of the Manthai West Divisional Secretariat in Mannar District would be released.

Documents pertaining to the release of these land plots would be formally delivered to the District Secretaries of Kilinochchi, Mullaitivu and Mannar during a brief ceremony headed by the Northern Province Governor in January 2019, the Army said.

    According to the report, these are govt lands and not private land overrun by Army from civilians. So actually these are govt grants of land to the Northern people.

    Releasing private lands can be understood. But why the government release lands belong to the Forest Conservation Department to the public in N and E?

    Please release private lands held by forces to the rightful owners! Not dish out state land! This action is a typical creation of 'illegal squatters' one fine day. All for cheap political advantage! Next thing is they will supply electricity, finally they will claim ownership. This is state property.
