Kayts Divisional Council passes motion against Navy using civilian wells

The Divisional Council (Prathesa Sabai) in Kayts condemned the Sri Lankan navy's excessive use of water from civilian wells in Mankuli. 

Meeting yesterday, the Council passed a motion calling for an end to this practice and sent a letter to the Navy commander in Kayts, the Northern province's governor and the government agent of Jaffna. 

Locals reported that wells were becoming dry because excessive amount of water are being taken everyday.   

The navy is said to be using over 10,000 litres of water per a day for their own use.
