"The ownership of Land should be considered as a fundamental right"

LET US AGREE & JOIN HANDS
"The ownership of Land should be considered as a fundamental right"


According to the Survey report of the land issues in the 18 districts by the “Praja Abhilasha” and People to People Dialogue on Peace and Sustainable Development Networks were understood that there should be a solution for the problems on those affected by Tsunami, those affected and displaced by the war which lasted for 25 years, those affected and displaced by other natural disasters such as earth slips, cyclone and flood, those persons displaced due to animals such as elephant living in their natural habitat and people displaced as they have no deeds for their land (Exp – those in the Estate sector have no deeds though they have been living there over 180 years).

Apart from these issues, there are those displaced as a result of Land given to Multinational Companies, land taken over by the government for security reasons and not giving other lands as compensation, those affected by the houses given by the National Housing authority as deed were not given hence there must be special policy changes in order to solve these problem.The Praja Abhilasha and PPD Networks proposes following to solve the issues:

01. A National Land Commission should be established.
02. A National Land Policy should be established and necessary actions should be taken.
03. The ownership of land should be considered as a fundamental right in the constitution and should be legalized.
04. There should be legal changes on land established by the legislature.

Let us consider the above demands and suggest the government to take immediate action.

We would be thankful, if you contribute your co-operation for this campaign. We invite for an Open Discussion with the NGOs, CBO,CSO,Government Agencies for this matter. Your contributions are appreciated.

Thanks.
