    We just completed a 3 day tour of Jaffna and what a joke this man telling, it will take atleast another 20 years to settle these people and it also may be at their cost and nothing from him??

    Ruwan Tuesday, 29 June 2010 09:47 AM

    Two months from which date..? (may be 2016 January).

    RajasH Tuesday, 29 June 2010 09:29 AM

    he is not resettled he is reprogrammed

    Pooh Tuesday, 29 June 2010 09:22 AM

    But many of us living in fancy world refused to believe the truth. We still prefer these people were under LTTE control.

    RajasH Tuesday, 29 June 2010 09:15 AM

    The Acting Finance Minister has just stated that the third tranche of IMF loan is without pre condition.

    SO whats the hurry?

    Calistus Jayatilleke Tuesday, 29 June 2010 08:24 AM

    His own "resettlement" took longer !

    Calistus Jayatilleke Tuesday, 29 June 2010 07:59 AM

    With KP's money?

    Ruwan Ferdinandez Tuesday, 29 June 2010 07:49 AM

    There were 300000 in camps by the end of the war and the government has re-settled almost 250000 during the last year. That is about 700 persons per day on average. If they maintain that rate, it will take another 60 days to re-settle the remaining 50000. So there is nothing to cry foul bout, the minister is saying nothing new but what has actually been happenning.

    Karuna started talking to the media again! I hate you man, but still if you resettle them... than I will be happy!

    Mohamed Shafraz Tuesday, 29 June 2010 07:41 AM

    What do you mean by resettling? just shifting refugee camps to their own soil?

    MagodisThuma Tuesday, 29 June 2010 07:38 AM

    Karuna is well settled !.

    SUMINA Tuesday, 29 June 2010 07:08 AM

    IF THIS IS SOMETHING THAT CAN BE DONE IN TWO MONTHS, WHAT WERE THEY ( THE GOVERNMENT) DOING ALL THIS TIME ? LETS HOPE IT WILL NOT BE A CASE OF 'FALLING FROM THE FRYING PAN TO THE FIRE' FOR THE POOR IDPS.

    sunilp Tuesday, 29 June 2010 07:08 AM

    How many times resettled, resettled & resettled ? Is it a
    " gypsy " resettlement programm Karuna is in charge of?

    Ravi Tuesday, 29 June 2010 07:07 AM

    WE need more patriotic people like Karuna in our Government.

    RajasH Tuesday, 29 June 2010 06:59 AM

    Whats is the definition of resettlement. Doesnt it means reuniting the family, giving their homes back, giving an normal environment where kids can go to school (including 6yr olds) , men can go to work and earn living, Just taking them out of barbed wire camps and putting them in an open camps is not resettlement.

    nanda Tuesday, 29 June 2010 06:41 AM

    One has to take into consideration that karuna's months are atleast 100days long and not 30 or 31 days as we are used to.

    malkanthi Tuesday, 29 June 2010 06:38 AM

    Resettled with all basic amenities Or by throwing them into a hut without it??

    farshard Tuesday, 29 June 2010 06:36 AM

    Nadarajah Sethurupan Tuesday, 29 June 2010 06:29 AM
