Wed, Mar 26, 2014, 09:11 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 26, Colombo: Parliamentarian of Sri Lanka's Tamil National Alliance (TNA) P. Selvaraja has said that lands in the North and East are being grabbed by chauvinist forces.

He has said at a meeting in the East that the Tamil speaking people have undergone immense difficulties in trying to safeguard their original homes.

He added that most often the lands are being grabbed under the guise of development purposes.

According to Selvaraja, private lands that belong to the Tamil people in the East, especially in the Batticaloa District are being taken over by the government with the assistance of chauvinist monks and the Sri Lanka Army.

Selvaraja said that the TNA is prepared to initiate legal action against encroachers who illegally occupy private lands of Tamil people.
