Kallady displaced families to be resettled

[TamilNet, Thursday, 19 July 2007, 09:44 GMT]
More than four hundred families who fled from Moothoor last year to Batticaloa district following military operation launched by the Sri Lanka Army are to be resettled in their lands in Kallady, a fishing hamlet located in Eachchilampathu division in Trincomalee district, Monday.

The IDP families are now staying in temporary shelters in several divisions in Batticaloa district under severe hardships without basic facilities.

Earlier the Batticaloa district secretariat had made arrangements to transport the IDP families to Kallady Thursday by buses via Vaharai.

But it was later abandoned due to unknown reasons.

Altogether about 1015 IDP families fled and sought refuge in Batticaloa district have been resettled in their lands in Eachchilampathu division.
