The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) is set to submit a report in Parliament on June 8 after its members were denied access to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) at the Menik Farm in Cheddikulam late last week.
Prior to submitting the report to Parliament the Alliance will also brief several foreign missions in the country on the same issue, Jaffna District MP Suresh Premachandran said yesterday.
A 12-member TNA delegation was making its maiden visit to the IDP camp since the conclusion of the general elections when the members were stopped at the gate on security grounds.
“We were told to obtain permission from Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa before for such visit could be allowed,” a senior TNA member said.
However earlier in the week the TNA delegation was allowed to tour the Kilinochchi and Mullaitivu areas.
TNA sources expressed serious concern at the living conditions of the displaced persons saying the people lacked even the basic necessities such as safe drinking water, proper shelter, health care and sanitation.
