A group of farmers from 7 districts has filed a fundamental rights case requesting the Supreme Court to order the authorities to grant them the 2,500 rupees drought relief.

The members of JVP affiliated All Ceylon Farmers Association led by Association’s national organizer and former MP Namal Karunarathne filed the case requesting the drought relief which is granted only to drought affected families in Moneragala.

Earlier the drought relief granted by the Economic Development Ministry to the people only in the Moneragala district was suspended temporarily by the Election Commissioner.

Later a group of farmers from Moneragala district filed a fundamental rights case.

Having considered the petition last Friday, the Supreme Court ordered the Economic Development Ministry to distribute the 2,500 rupees drought relief as planned.

The JVP in its fundamental rights case stated today if the drought relief is granted, it should be given to other affected families in 7 districts.
