Batticaloa district UPFA National List Member of Parliament and the State Minister for Resettlement and Rehabilitation M. L. A. M. Hizbullah revealed in a public meeting that he used his ministerial power and political influence to transfer the Judge who gave a verdict against planting date palm trees in the middle of Batticaloa – Kalmunai highway in Kattankudy. Later, Hizbullah appointed a judge and literally ordered the judge to change the verdict in favour of him.
It should be pointed out that few months ago Hizbullah said in a public meeting that he forcibly took over and demolished the Hindu Kali Temple in Oddamavady and used his political power to manipulate the legal and land records then gave that land to a Muslim Mosque in the region.
People of Batticaloa district are dissatisfied with the present Maithiripala government for not taking any actions against Hizbullah’s forcible land grabbing and usurpation activities in the Eastern Province.
