President Maithripala Sirisena requested the people in the Northern Province to avoid being deceived by schemes that could provoke people.
Participating in a function held in Keerimalai in Kankesanthurai, Jaffna on Monday afternoon, where the ownership of property at a housing project was handed over to individuals, the President said that all should act responsibly to prevent the recurrence of a war.
The ceremony was the first phase of a resettlement process of 971 families that had lived as IDPs in 31 Jaffna Welfare Centres.
Hundred houses were handed over yesterday.
The fifth Engineering Service Department had supported the project with technology and labour under the supervision of the Jaffna Security Regiment Headquarters.
