Authorities surveying lands in North – Thiyagarajah
By Naalir Jamaldeen
Northern Province Governor, Jeevan Thiyagarajah, yesterday (2) said the relevant authorities have been surveying lands in the Province within the legal framework to implement infrastructure as well as livelihood development projects.
The Governor added that through such moves, it is intended to achieve sustainable development in all aspects in the Province, while raising the economic and living standards of people.
He said, however, Government officials have faced interference from people’s representatives.
“If they have concern in surveying the lands, I am always ready to hold discussions with them. While there are many ways to solve an issue, obstructing the officials from doing their duty is totally unacceptable,” according to the Governor.
If such practices continue, I will not hesitate to take legal action against them for the greater good of the people, Thiyagarajah added.
