President Mahinda Rajapaksa said that the responsibility of the government officers is to advise to evacuate people from disaster prone areas, and to follow such instruction is the duty of estate owners.

The President stressed that the lives of innocent people cannot be taken as scapegoat for mere negligence.

The President expressed these views during his inspection tour in the landslide-hit Meeriyabedda this morning.

The President visited the Sri Ganesha Tamil Vidyalaya where the displaced people are sheltered, and he monitored the progress of relief distribution as well.

The President then instructed the relevant authorities to take prompt action to resettle the affected people. He directed the officials to put into action a special program to look after the children who lost their parents in the landslide.

Recalling the Tsunami devastation, President told the officials to take extra caution as fraudulent parties could claim the hold of the affected children.

He has also informed to look after the children in a common place until they are given over to their true relatives or a proper program is initiated for their future wellbeing.
