  1. The country ‘s major export crop , the tea is undergoing a difficult time under the State Enterprise Minister Kabir Hasim who controls Stare Planation Corporation, JEDB etc. He has categorized tea estates into A, B and C groups and at present the lands coming under the C group are being leased or sold to the private enterprises. According to reliable information many of these leases etc are being handed over to the known parties of the high officials without a proper valuation of these lands

2    We are about to expose a fraud in connection with one such deal how 8 acres of Little Valley section of Great Valley Eatate, Deltota had been sold to one Sitthi Jamiya Umma. This land is located in one of the most important tea lands of Sri Lanka. The land had been sold in exchange of another land belonging to Jamiya Ummma under the deed no 7648. The land of 8 acres had been sold at Rs 4.82.The JEDB has been receiving very high prices for tea produced in this estate and no recognition had been given to its productivity. The sale had been conducted by the Land Reforms Commission without going through the normally accepted procedure. One wonders obviously how an invisible hand had interfered to complete this transaction.

3 The land sold is not only economically important, but it is vital to the expansion and service facilities to Deltota town and to meet the needs of the 113 families of the estate,

4 The most interesting piece of the story is Jmaiya who received the land for Rs 4.82 million is now in the market to sell the land for over Rs 8 million!

5 We question the procedure followed in selling this 8 acres and somebody must investigate the reliable information that the LRC is handing over lands of the country to the kith and kin of the decision makers

    RATAMA KAAPALLAA, KONDAK NETHI PATHOLAYA INNAKAN. I KNOW THIS ESTATE VERY WELL. PAST GALAHA, ALMOST CLOSE TO LOOL KANDURA ESTATE. IT IS ALSO CLOSE TO RIKILIGASKADA. VERY VERY BEAUTIFUL ESTATE, BRINGING IN EXCELLENT RETURNS.

  2. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    JUST ONE MORE THING. THE AREA IN REFERENCE IS MOSTLY OCCUPIED BY SINHALESE AND TAMILS. THERE ARE KOVILS IN GALAHA, AND ALSO IN DELTOTA. I CANNOT REMEMBER SEEING ANY MOSQUES AROUND. PERHAPS, THIS MAY BE TO PUT UP A MOSQUE, AND MARK THE MUSSIE TERRITORY.

    Selling off tea plantation land is a good thing. In fact, the tea industry must be eliminated! Although it makes $1.3 billion in export earnings, most of it goes back in terms of fertilizer, equipment, vehicle, fuel, etc. imports. This is why the industry makes loss. Damage to the environment and cost of massive amounts of water usage and catchment area destruction are not factored in.

    Illegal and loss making transactions and deals must be stopped and investigated.

  4. Christie Says:

    Land in occupied by the plantation industry is land occupied and owned by Sinhalese. Most of these land were taken over by the British-Indian administration under the Crown Land Ordinance of 1840 and sold or given to British Companies and were occupied and enjoyed by Indian Colonial Parasites. The land ownership should be returned to the Sinhalese.

  5. Ancient Sinhalaya Says:

    Minister is a mussie and buyers are mussies. Then of course, it is easy peasy. That’s YAMA PAALANAYA you Sinhala modayas. Sri Pada sold to multiplying mussies.
