Electricity for allaipiddi residents
Colombo: Social Services and Social Welfare Minister Douglas
Devananda said that he would take necessary steps immediately to supply
electricity to Allaipiddi for the convenience of the residents.
The people have been undergoing severe hardships due to lack of
electricity for the last 20 years.
The Minister added that this was a gesture of meeting with a promise
he made to the displaced from Allaipiddi when they were temporarily
sheltered at Jaffna Adaikalamatha and Navanthurai St. Nicholas Churchs
He also said that he was taking necessary steps to pay compensation
to the resettled Allaipiddi people for the properties they have lost.
In addition arrangements are made providing them with a proper
transport system and a hospital for medical facilities, as these are
totally lacking in this area at present.
