Protesters demand action against land grabs in Batticaloa

Tamils held a demonstration in Valaichenai, Batticaloa, today, demanding action against land grabs by Sinhala and Muslim settlers.

Aided by parliamentarians from their respective communities, Sinhala and Muslim settlers are illegally appropriating lands belonging to Tamils in Muravodai, Vahanaeri, Alankulam, Kuhanesapuram and Punanai.
