Sri Lanka’s main opposition on Monday welcomed President Maithripala Sirisena’s promise of land for 100,000 people who were forced from their homes during the long civil war.

The majority of these people are Tamils.

The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) said Sirisena’s pledge to give displaced civilians new plots within six months was a “positive development,” but demanded that the military vacate the private land it occupied, sources stated.
