Ambalangoda tsunami victims protest against government 'negligence'

ColomboPage, 6 - 29 - 2005:: Wednesday, June 29, 2005, 15:20 GMT, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 29, Colombo: Families in Ambalangoda displaced by the tsunami disaster came onto the road today, blaming the Sri Lankan government for its failure to provide relief as promised.

They complained that they received their Rs. 5000 allowance for only two months and demanded that they be provided with new houses as well as their allowance.

The displaced families came in groups to the Ambalangoda Provincial Secretariat premises and some of them entered the office. They criticized the government for deceiving and deserting them. Some charged that the government might not do anything until they are dead and gone.
