Back to 1956? Colonisation in Pottuvil

Tamil speaking Muslims of Senkaamam, a village close to Pottuvil town have lodged complaints of a colonisation programme taking place in their village.

It has emerged that a planned settlement of Sinhala majority is underway in the village.

Colonisation programmes were instrumental in kick starting the ethnic conflict in 1956.
