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.

    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.
