Mon, Apr 14, 2014, 10:27 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 14, Colombo: An ally of Sri Lanka's governing party, the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) has called to initiate legal action against Minister Rishad Bathiyutheen over the alleged resettlement of Muslim people in the Wilpattu National Park.

Western Provincial Council Minister Udaya Gammanpila has been quoted in the local media as saying that the JHU was of the view that Muslim people should be legally resettled in the North and not in an illegal manner by clearing national parks, sanctuaries and forest reserves.

He has pointed out that legal action must be taken against persons who have resettled people in the national park irrespective of their positions, party or religious differences.

He has added that the law should be equal to everyone.

Gammanpila has also called for a special commission to be appointed to investigate into the individuals who foster Tamil separatism and action should be taken against them.
