Ven Medananda thera, who returned after a tour in the East, said that LTTE was in the process of acquiring traditional homelands belong to Sinhala villagers.

"They have changed the names of these villages and their demarcations as well. New fences have been erected by the LTTE demarcating boundaries of their territory," he said.
