Sri Lankan government has planned a large Buddhist vihara at the entrance of Mullaiththeevu town at Karaichchikkudiyiruppu, 150 meters near the Kachcheari building, said former Jaffna MP Selvaraja Kajendren Saturday. The government is spending millions in construction of the Buddhist temple and in constructing at least two memorial sites for Sri Lanka Army commanders killed in action, while the Tamil civilians are not provided with meaningful aid for resettlement, Mr. Kajendren told media.

The Buddhist vihara is planned to be raised in state-owned land, informed sources further said adding that papers have been submitted to the District Secretariat of Mullaiththeevu seeking permission to construct the Vihara.

Meanwhile, reliable sources in Vanni said Sinhalese settlers were being brought to coastal strip of Mullaiththeevu in recent times for settlement by the government.
