Amidst an assurance by President Maithripala Sirisena that the land issues in the North will be settled within the next three months, the government is to set up a special task force to expedite the resettlement process in the North.
On Friday, speaking to media heads Sirisena said that the people in the North were requesting that the land that belonged to them be returned, and therefore as a government it was important to understand the grievances of the people. “They are asking for their own lands. We have achieved remarkable progress on resettlement, but there are a few more problems that need to be resolved,” he said.
He admitted that there was a delay on part of the state owned Survey Department because the department lacks sufficient personnel to fast track the process which will help solve these land related issues. “But despite certain difficulties, we hope to sort out these land related matters within three months,” he said.
