The occupying Sri Lanka Army has established a military camp in the public land, which has been used as general cemetery for generations at Vadukaneari by the Tamil people of Odduchchuddaan in Mullaith-theevu district. Now the Odduchchuddan villagers are forced to travel eight miles off the village to bury their dead and hold religious rituals for their loved ones.
Recently, Northern Provincial Council (NPC) councillor Thurairajah Raviharan visited the cemetery land following complaints from the resettled people.
The people of Odduchuddaan demanded the Tamil National Alliance, especially the NPC political representatives to wage a struggle against Sinhalicisation.
