100 Muslim & 125 Sinhala Families wants to go home PDF Print E-mail
100 Muslim families will come soon from Puttalam to resettle in Jaffna while 250 families are registered for resettlement. Concerned parties have to provide necessary housing facility to these people without delay, said SM Faiz, secretary, People’s Office.

Housing is the major issue to these Muslim refugees. Muslims who have already arrived here are unable to stay in their houses since these buildings are totally destroyed, he added.

Nearly 125 Sinhalese families, who had been chased away by the LTTE from Kokilai and Kalkudah in 1990, and are insisting that they be allowed to return to their original places of residence.

They are to meet the North East Development Task Force Chairman Basil Rajapaksa MP next week, to discuss the matter.
