Vijayakala to ask for compensation for war victims

State Education Minister Vijayakala Maheshwaran said she would suggest to President Maithripala Sirisena to grant special compensation for those who died in artillery and mortar attacks during the last phase of the war.

She was speaking at the ceremony in Kilinochchi to grant Samurdhi beneficiary certificates to 13,078 new recipients.

The event was held at Kilinochchi Central College on Sunday presided by Primary Industries and Social Empowerment Minister Daya Gamage. State Minister Maheshwaran said that although the government has provided relief to the people who were affected by the war, the Tamil people expected more when President Sirisena was elected President in 2015.
