UDA yet to takeover land to be distributed Featured

The UDA is planning to distribute the land known as ‘Hamuge Idam’ at Mahawa in Kurunegala, Reports say.

Previously, T.B. Ekanayake had planned to distribute the land when he was the lands minister, by charging Rs. 100,000 per recipient.

That was halted after Pradeshiya Sabha member C.W. Sirisena complained to the ombudsman of parliament.

That complaint is still being looked into, when UNP organizer Achini Lokubandara is panning to distribute the land with approval from minister Sajith Premadasa and the president.

However, the UDA is still to take over the land.
