Several major channels and newspapers, including Sirasa TV, reported on the forcible land acquisition and environmental destruction in the Panahaduwa Meegahayaya area in Embilipitiya.
According to the villagers, a secretary and a monk associated with the state administration in the area who are leading the incident are conspiring with several villagers to forcibly seize lands and build roads and create a dispute with all the villagers against the incident.
About three villagers had a discussion with the secretary yesterday and the day before yesterday (14,15). They also state that they did.
However, we have a large number of frauds, corruptions and irregularities and the monk and the monk have been charged with various offenses. A wildlife official told us that they had discussed with the wildlife department to hand over the Galbokkayaya mountain range to the relevant company and had exerted various pressures on them.
However, a number of recognized organizations as well as the media are now paying attention to this incident and if government officials who are paid by the government act in this manner, who will solve the problems of the people? However, we emphasize to the relevant government agencies and the security forces that there is a possibility of a major conflict if the necessary steps are not taken to stop this issue.
