No evidence of burial ground says Sudhakar

Minister for Lands Ashneel Sudhakar has confirmed that the Suvavou villagers have not presented any evidence.
Sudhakar is waiting for any evidence to show that the piece of land given to the government of India is an ancient burial ground.
Earlier this week, they presented their petition of going against the government’s decision to allocate a piece of land at the Suva Botanical Garden for the construction of the Embassy of India.
The villagers claimed that the land was part of their ancient burial ground and they don’t want any development to take place.
However Sudhakar says there is no proof of this and he has also received confirmation that there was no cemetery on the piece of land allocated to the Indian government.
The Lands Ministry is currently waiting for the Suva City Council to carry out the relevant checks and surveys before any approval is given for the construction of the Embassy of India.
