Sri Lanka: No deadline on resettlement

The government says it has not set a deadline for the resettlement of the remaining Internally Displaced People (IDP) who are still in camps at Vavuniya.

When asked by Daily Mirror online on reports of a possible deadline to resettle the IDPs, Minister of Resettlement and Disaster Relief Services, Rishard Bathiudeen said no such deadline has been set but the government hopes to resettle the IDPs as “soon as possible”.

Indian sources had told Daily Mirror online that the government had informed India that all the IDPs will be resettled by the end of next month, just prior to the April 8 General Elections.
