SLA conditions delay school reconstruction in Jaffna HSZ
[TamilNet, Friday, 24 December 2004, 13:13 GMT]
The rehabilitation of war destroyed schools which are located inside the high security zones in Jaffna district are getting delayed due to stringent conditions of the Sri Lanka Army in transporting materials to sites of reconstruction. Hence the contractors are fighting to keep the deadline, education sources said.
Army soldiers are imposing strict check on labourers who are deployed in reconstruction works and education officials who visit to supervise the works inside the HSZ. Hence contractors who have undertaken such works are in a dilemma to complete their contracts within the stipulated period agreed upon, sources said.
