Resettlement ministry pledges to release 650 acres in Vali North by April 16

Sri Lanka's Ministry of Resettlement yesterday pledged to release 650 acres in Valikaamam North by April 16. 

The pledge was announced by the Ministry's secretary, Ponniah Suresh, at an event yesterday where 30 houses built by the military were handed over to displaced people of Varuththalaivilaan. 

The section of Point Pedro road, which was recently opened only for the use of public buses, would be made open for civilians on April 16, Mr Suresh told those gathered at the event. 

Families from Vali North have protested for a number of years against the military's prolonged occupation of their land despite the end of the armed conflict.
