Mannaar Divisional Secretary D.Dayananda has ordered all uprooted Tamil residents residing in the public lands at Ezhil Nakar to dismantle their temporary sheds and boundary fences and vacate from the land within one week’s time. The eviction order has been issued by the Divisional Secretary to settle down about 600 Sinhalese from the South, civil sources said.

Mannaar DS has threatened the Tamil occupants that he would file action in the Sri Lankan law courts if they failed to carry out his instruction.

The latest move by the divisional secretary comes while Sri Lanka’s Government Agent to Mannaar District has been scheming a Sinhala colony at Saanthipuram and South bar in Mannar district, the civil sources further said.
