Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has instructed the Urban Development Authority chairman to immediately stop acquiring Colombo District lands by force and evacuating people from their houses under the pretext of development.

Issuing a communiqué the Prime Minister said that if land acquisition was necessary a systematic humane methodology should be formulated with the participation of the MPs and advice of civil society of the area.

During the time of the previous government people were evacuated and lands acquired by force to fulfill various requirements.

The Prime Minister said that compensation for this had been paid unsystematically and improperly.

The communiqué issued by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe says further that steps should also be taken for introducing a more transparent responsible plan.
