Vehicles that were abandoned after the conclusion of the war are pictured here dumped at various vehicle yards in the North. The Government Agents office is planning to auction the vehicles as there can be a break out of dengue, due to rain water contaminating in the vehicles. Pix by Romesh Madushanka

    should be distributed to the farmers in the north for free and win the people's hearts importantly. The cost to repair them seems already too dear for them anyway and for the government to earn from people's items is not ethical.

    WAIT..... OWNERS OF THE VEHICLE WILL PARTICIPATE FROM HEAVEN..... THEY NEED TIME..

    Check out the items that are serviceable and sell them to interested parties and sell the rest to a junk metal dealer to be exported as junk metal. The government could make some money. Keep a few items , housed in a war museum to show future generations of Tamis the futility of armed conflict & war.
