Jaffna polling cards security issues discussed

[TamilNet, Saturday, 21 February 2004, 18:37 GMT]
Sri Lanka's Post Master General (PMG) Mr.K.A.Senadhira said Saturday that Jaffna district polling cards will be sent from Colombo by air. He made this announcement on his visit to Jaffna Saturday, postal department sources said.

Mr.Senadhira held discussions at the regional office of the postal department, which is located at Stanley Road in Jaffna town with postmasters, and subpostmasters of the peninsula regarding the distribution of polling cards and other related issues.

Polling cards will be sent in a special aircraft through a competent airforce officer to Jaffna. That SLA officer will in turn hand over polling cards to the postmaster who is functioning in Palaly army headquarters. Jaffna Chief Post Master will then take charge of the polling cards from Palaly Post master, Mr.Senadhira said.

Mr.Senadhira has instructed his Jaffna officials to provide enough security when transporting polling cards from Palaly to Jaffna town.

He further allowed Jaffna postal department officials to recruit substitutes to deliver polling cards. Later he inspected the newly constructed main post office building, which has not yet been opened for the use of public, sources said.
